Renee Graef (Illustrator)
Lila is a little groundhog trying to find out a big secret! What happens
all winter long while she is asleep? And what's so important about being
the first groundhog to wake up? Uncle Wilbur challenges Lila to wake
up first and find out. But while devising her plan to be first, Lila
falls asleep...What happens when Lila does wake up and goes Above Ground
to see what's happening? Why are all the other animals waiting for her?
Lila discovers the secret of the first one up, and just how important
it is to be a groundhog.
This charming story about the tradition of Groundhog's Day celebrates
the arrival of Spring and one little groundhog's moment in the spotlight.
Warm, nostalgic illustrations of cuddly critters add to this cozy story,
making a perfect family read-aloud. An author's note includes further
