    There were so many wonderful things about Pace's GROUNDHUG DAY--the celebration of multiple spring holidays, team work amongst friends and the acceptance of the quirky likes and dislikes of others. Parents and teachers will be able to take this book into so many wonderful directions, all while being fascinated by the spectacular illustrations. You're going to want to hug this sweet story.
