    A Publishers Weekly commentator remarked favorably on Koscielniak's "subdued palette of olive greens, browns, and other wintry hues," while School Library Journal contributor Tana Elias mentioned his "energetic watercolor and pen drawings.

Multicultural Whitman 32p With a hurricane approaching, Sarah' s family boards up the windows and prepare to wait, but Sarah sneaks outside to find her favorite doll.

    One scene noted by reviewers in Publishers Weekly and School Library Journal finds Harold and Prudence, exhausted after a long day, resting in a pair of lawn chairs under the night sky; unknown to them, their children are sneaking out of their upstairs bedroom by means of a rope-ladder made from bed sheets. Bear is the equivalent of the ant, planting and tending his field with care; and Bunny is more like the grasshopper, recklessly throwing his seeds onto the ground and running off to play when it's time to weed and water the crop. Unless Phil has cosmic pull over cloud cover, it's safe to say that he has little to no idea about impending weather. Multicultural Whitman 32p With a hurricane approaching, Sarah' s family boards up the windows and prepare to wait, but Sarah sneaks outside to find her favorite doll. Geoffrey Groundhog awakens one February 2nd and applies his mother's teachings to predict when spring will arrive. But Geoffrey's fame has grown out of control - and so has the commotion surrounding his burrow!

    Here is information about Groundhog Day and its origins, as well as facts about the animal at the center of this delightful annual event. If the day is cloudy, and therefore shadow-prohibitive, it indicates an early spring. I found it at our local library. But Groundhog does NOT want to leave his cozy bed in his cozy den.
