Celebrate Groundhog Day with a Tumblebook!

Feb 2, 2024

Today is Groundhog Day!  According to news reports, Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow, which means we are in for an early spring.  Only time will tell if our country’s cutest weather forecaster’s prediction will be accurate this year, but it’s fun to celebrate this tradition that has been around for over 130 years.

If you’re looking for a great book to celebrate Groundhog Day with your young children or patrons, Mr. Groundhog Wants the Day Off by Pat Stemper Vojta is available on TumbleBook Library in the WSL’s GoWyld’s Kids K-8 Resources page under Early Literacy.

In addition to Tumble Book Library, which allows readers to listen to and watch animated illustrations of the book, GoWyld’s Early Literacy resources include Bookflix, which ties fact to fiction by pairing fictional video storybooks with related nonfiction ebooks, as well as NoveList K-8 Plus, which offers a searchable database especially for readers in grades K through eight and has a link to help readers locate their book in WYLDCAT and their library.  Readers can search for books on any topic, including groundhogs or Groundhog Day!

GoWyld offers a wealth of resources for Wyoming readers of all ages. Check it out and read more in 2024!
