Book Review - Miss Fox's Class Goes Green

About the Book 
When Miss Fox shows up at school riding her bicycle, Mouse asks, "Do you have a flat tire?" "No," Miss Fox tells her students. "I am going green!"

Soon everyone in the class is working to keep the earth healthy. Mouse takes shorter showers (and does her singing after!); Bunny brings a cloth bag to the supermarket; and Possum turns the lights off when he goes out.

And Miss Fox's simple act has ripples even beyond her own students... the principal starts riding his bike, too, and soon the whole school is going green! As in Peace Week in Miss Fox's Class, Eileen Spinelli and Anne Kennedy have combined their talents to make a serious subject both funny and inspiring.

My Take on the Book
Eileen Spinelli has written anaother meaningful story to share and inspire adults and children. We all know the importance of "going green" : to recycle, reuse, conserve, etc. In this story , Miss Fox inspires and problem solves with her students . She helps them brainstorm ways in which they can help planet Earth and the community they live in. I love the humor in this story. For example Frog says: "I can use less water . . .I can stop taking showers." And Squirrel says: "I know how to save paper. No more homework." The students find many ways to make a difference and you can see how proud they are of their efforts to "go green". I feel this is another exceptional story teachers and parents could add to their personal libraries and read to their young children.
