This storybook is illustrated with photographs of woodland animals including a groundhog, squirrels and more. Some of the illustrations were photo shopped with clothes for the animals or photos of things like cell phones that are mentioned in the story. This gave the book a unique look.
The story is about Margot who is due to hibernate for the winter. She feels different from her fellow groundhogs because she is not eager to go underground; Margot fears that she will miss her friends too much. So…Margot’s friends come up with ways that they can keep in touch through the long winter.
This story can be read simply as Margot’s story. It could also be a discussion opener for kids who may miss people in their lives, for example relatives in other states, and can think about ways to keep in touch.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this read in exchange for an honest revie
