The children are learning about winter weather, the amount of daylight in the winter and our favorite Groundhog. Put all these things together and the big question is will the Groundhog see his shadow! The children read a wonderful book about “Punxsutawney Phil” and all of his family’s adventures by Julia Spencer Moutran, Ph.D. As early as Feb. 2, 1887, the first annual visit to Gobbler’s Knob was made by believers in Punxsutawney Phil. Since that date, Phil’s annual forecasts have been recorded in newspapers, broadcast on radio stations, and filmed for television stations across the world.
