This is an excellent book, full of facts woven into Margot the Groundhog’s story. I enjoyed learning about groundhogs and truly loved the photography. I plan to recommend this book to school librarians as it will be a great addition to school libraries as well as home. — Ellen L. Buikema, author of The Adventures of Charlie Chameleon series

A beautiful book for children all about woodchucks with stunning photographs and lots of information, such as why they like salt so much, how they drink, and how their burrows underground are built.
I can imagine this book being carefully preserved and passed from child to child, enchanting each one. Very well done to the author for an original and interesting book.

With that said, I also enjoy trying new things, especially books with intriguing themes, and this one was definitely unique in nature (no pun intended). As well, I've gotten to know the author and her passion for the written word and the entertainment of children is almost tangible. I just had to check out this book.
My final verdict? I enjoyed every minute of it! I was enthralled by the amazing photographs this author captured, and thoroughly impressed with how, with such precision and believability, she incorporated the props into Margot the Woodchuck's hands. It was an unforgettable experience, reading this book.
I read it on my Kindle, travelling to our family farm, and my older kids were even impressed with the photos and facts I shared with them along the way. At one point, the radio was even turned down and earbuds fell from the ears of teenage boys. THAT was a shocker!
I highly recommend this book to anyone with little ones, especially those who enjoy animal stories. Even adults can appreciate the care and dedication that went into creating this book. I will be reading more by this author.
