The Rookie Read-About(R) Holidays series introduces young readers to the origins, purpose, and ways of celebrating a variety of national, ethnic, civic, religious, and historical holidays from around the world. On Groundhog Day we watch America's most famous weather forecaster, Punxsutawney Phil, predict whether or not there will be six more weeks of winter. Groundhog Day tells the history of this holiday, and then describes how Phil predicts the weather from his home in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.
It's February 2nd and all eyes are on Punxsutawney Phil--the famous weather-predicting groundhog. If he sees his shadow, there are six more weeks of winter ahead. But if he doesn't, spring is just around the corner!
