Widely distributed in North America and common in the northeastern and central United States, the woodchuck is a lowland animal. Like any other member of its family, this variety also has unique features that are sometimes seen and observed by people. In author Lauryne Hope’s Mr. Woodchuck, she brings this animal into the spotlight as she weaves an adorable and delightful tale that will surely entertain readers and give them an idea what a woodchuck is and how they live.

In this book, readers will find two young children who come across Mr. Woodchuck in the lowland and they are wondering why he comes to that place. The children try to consider all possible purposes—to bring cheer, to find someone to chat, to play, to find food, and others—and they also find that Mr. Woodchuck’s eyesight is not good. They give him food to eat—he loves to eat plant life—and after Mr. Woodchuck has eaten, he becomes full and fatter. Though their interaction is short, they had fun with Mr. Woodchuck and learn some things about him.

Brief but amusing, filled with colorful and enticing illustrations, this book will inspire readers to explore more about woodchuck and learn how they live, how they move, and how to take care of this animal. It is an ideal instrument to teach children how to love and respect the animals.

This book will be featured at the 2012 New York State Reading Association Book Exhibit in Syracuse, N.Y. on October 28 -30, 2012.
