April Fool, Phyllis!

by Hannah Holt »


‘Round here, we like mischief!

That’s why we were excited to hear Susanna Leonard Hill has a new picture book for April Fools’ Day.

It’s called April Fool, Phyllis!, and it tells the story of a groundhog named Phyllis and her April 1st shenanigans.

Part of the fun of this book is a treasure hunt that you and your kids can puzzle out. After reading the story, my kids wanted to do their own Phyllis hunt. We dug through their stuffed animal collection to find a good Phyllis. We didn’t have a groundhog, but we found an otter, whom we promptly accessorized and named Phyllis II:


{Phyllis I}     and      { Phyllis II}

Ever since, we’ve been busy hiding Phyllis all over.

It’s added a lot of amusement and anticipation leading up to April Fools’ Day. Check out April Fool, Phyllis! and see if Phyllis can’t add fun to your day, too.
