Groundhog loves to run and play! To him, sleeping all winter is boring. So when winter comes, Groundhog refuses to hibernate, even though his friends warn that he’ll be hungry and cold and lonely. He has fun running and playing in the snow, until he realizes that without anyone else around to play with, he really does get hungry and cold and lonely.nbsp; Then he has a brilliant idea! He’ll announce an EARLY spring!

"When Lila, a young groundhog, objects to going to sleep for the winter, Uncle Wilbur tells her to rest so that she can try to be the first one to wake up in the spring and discover a big secret. She is indeed the first groundhog to awaken and quickly runs up the tunnel and outdoors, where she is greeted by all of the animals that do not hibernate and learns from them how important her shadow is." (School Library Journal)
