Summary: Gregory is a shy groundhog, and having his friend Shadow close by makes him feel brave. But one day Gregory and Shadow go outside to look for food, and they get separated. Scared and lonely, they search and search for one another.To make matters worse, tomorrow is Groundhog Day, and everyone will be waiting to see if Gregory and his shadow leave their home together. Will the two friends find each other in time for Groundhog Day?
Suggested Activity:  Measuring Shadows

Have children pair up to trace their shadows. Show them how one child in each pair can stand in the sun on a hard surface (or on a piece of paper if you’re inside) while the other child uses chalk or a pencil to trace the shadow.When children finish, have partners trade places so everyone has a shadow tracing.
