Book Review: Grumpy Groundhog

Book Title: Grumpy Groundhog grumpy

The cover is adorable!

This is a beautifully illustrated short book for children with a great message about well being nice? To those of you who don’t know, Groundhog Day is on February 2nd and that’s when we find out if winter is to stay- Groundhog shadow style!

Though the groundhog was grumpy, adults and children didn’t give up so maybe the lesson is about not giving up?

Anyway, the drawings are cute with diverse characters which is great! A fun read to your kid.

This is a beautifully illustrated short book for children with a great message about well sneezing and the season of fall. It’s a little different from “Book Review: Sleep, Big Bear, Sleep!” but still is fun.

Parents can try counting leaves, apples, and geese with their young ones and have a laugh while doing it. A mood raiser.

This is a beautifully illustrated short book for children with a great message about sleeping. My son lately is having a hard time falling asleep. I see him rubbing his eyes and getting tired but when I put him down for bed, he’s suddenly wide awake! He sings and smiles and laughs- it’s adorable so I thought to read about book by Maureen.

This short book is funny. It made me smile and laugh because the bear was even willing to clean house when he should have been sleeping!

Good for mothers to share with their kids. Probably for children over one year old though sooner to share is okay because of the illustrations! The bear has a buddy in this one!

This is a beautifully illustrated short book for children with a great message about sharing. I found the illustrations and the the writing to be a perfect combination. A parent can show all types of animals and colors to their child while reading the book, creating a longer experience of learning about sharing.

I recommend to mothers who are looking for children books about sharing.

For my review of book 3, go here: Book Review: The Land of Stories (A Grimm Warning)

For my review of book 4, go here:  The Land of Stories (Beyond the Kingdoms)

For my review of book 5, go here: Book Review: An Author’s Odyssey (The Land of Stories #5)

Please don’t read this review if you haven’t read the first five books. There are some spoilers.

This book is a continuation of book 5.

I’m happy to report that the series has a satisfying ending!

I really liked how Connor saved Alex. Applause to Chris Colfer. A job well done.

One of the hardest things for a story is not the adventure, but how to close that adventure and Chris had multiple ends to finish- including what happens to the book characters who were not from the land of stories or the Otherworld.

This book is recommended to those who like fairy tale retelling. Adults can enjoy this book, too.

Oh! The president of the United States is a woman in the book!
