Book Review - Miss Fox's Class Earns a Field Trip

About the Book
Miss Fox's class is back! Now the students want to go to Roller Coaster Planet -- and they are determined to earn the money for their trip. But each fund-raising attempt ends in disaster involving Percy P. Possum, the school's visiting author. As the class pays to repair the various mishaps they cause, soon their earnings are going down, not up! How will they ever get to Roller Coaster Planet?

Young readers will enjoy Eileen Spinelli's appealing animals and Anne Kennedy's hilarious paintings -- and learn a little math into the bargain! Eileen and Anne also teamed up to produce Peace Week in Miss Fox's Class and Miss Fox's Class Goes Green.

My Take on the Book
Miss Fox's class is once again involved in problem solving. This time earning money to visit an amusement park. Although they have good intentions, they run into problems.

This is a good story to show children that no matter what difficulties they encounter they need to persevere. Mr.Possum was the brunt of so many calamities and finally said it this way to the children as they tried to remedy all the problems along the way: YOU NEVER GAVE UP. So many times our children want to have " quick fixes" and that is not the answer. This story shows how the children's responsibility for their actions wins them their trip.
