Happy Groundhog Day!
We interrupt our biography series to have a little groundhog fun. Author Susanna Leonard Hill is sponsoring a fashion show for her picture book character, Phyllis the groundhog, which you can read about here and see all the other entries. My 11 yr old daughter, Anna, drew a Ballerina Phyllis, twirling and refining the five positions of ballet while she passes the winter months in her warm burrow. Anna predicts Phyllis will say 6 more weeks of winter, because of how the polar vortex has made winter weather worse. Since there's no Groundhog Day in Korea, we like participating in this contest. Thanks, Susanna. If you'd like to see Susanna's Punxsutawney Phyllis, see below and click.

Thanks, Diane. Anna's goal is to be an illustrator so she can illustrate my books!
