Time for Margot to Go to Bed (Margot the Groundhog and Her North American Squirrel Family Book 3) by Lieve Snellings is the story of Margot the groundhog and hibernation. Margot was feeling sad though she loved her sleep time. Frazie, the American red squirrel, felt Margot was sad because she would not be able to run and jump for a long time. Margot explained to Frazie and Phillie, the gray squirrel, how groundhogs don't even visit their families during their hibernation. Margot wanted to hang out with her friends. Her friends, the squirrels, decided to find a way to see each other so that they could play together. They wanted to dry her tears and make her happy to enter her burrow. Let's read the story to find out how Margot's friends planned to stay in touch with her.

This is a beautiful story that will introduce young readers to the concept of hibernation in an engaging way, and the story is also about friendship. It is heartwarming to see Margot's friends trying to find ways to stay in touch with her while she is hibernating in the burrow. The illustrations are as magical as the story and bring the characters to life and give each one of them a personality of their own. This makes them memorable and real to young readers. It is a good storybook to help children make good and lasting friends. Tutors and parents can read the story of Margot to them and encourage them to make good friends who bring color and joy into their lives, just like Margot's friends.
