Well, It's Groundhog Day and Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow predicting an early spring!
Of course Groundhog Day also means that this blog post will be about my book Mr. Groundhog Wants The Day Off.
I decided to share a few images on how one of the double page spreads developed from concept to final painting. If you'd like to buy the book just click here and visit the Rave Tree Press website. Order a book and while you're there click on the Activity Sheet link and download some Groundhog Day history; fun activities; a coloring page; and a fun smoothie recipe for the kids!! Enjoy!
