Book Review: Groundhog's Dilemma

GROUNDHOG’S DILEMMA by Kristen Remenar is a beautifully illustrated picture book exploring the themes of peer pressure, friendship, and honesty.
Groundhog is concerned about disappointing his friends when he announces six more weeks of winter. After being approached by various animals with different perspectives, he decides that telling the truth is the best path.
The richly colored pages with large, attractive characters will appeal to children. The use of speech bubbles lend themselves to a read-aloud approach using varied voices.
Librarians will find this book to be a popular addition to their “Groundhog’s Day” holiday book collection for early elementary children. The themes of peer pressure, friendship, and honesty will ring true with young readers.
