Book Review - Peace Week in Miss Fox's Class

About the Book
Miss Fox is tired of hearing her young students quarrel. So she announces Peace Week—no more squabbling for one whole week! The children chime in with their own rules: no fighting, don't say mean things, and help others. Throughout the week each of the little animals gets a chance to practice this new behavior. When Polecat teases Bunny for wearing a bright yellow sweater, instead of poking fun back at Polecat, Bunny admires his sweater. Soon, to their surprise, the animals are finding that it's easy to help others, take turns, and say nice things, even when someone is grumpy to them. Wouldn't it be nice, Squirrel says, if every week could be Peace Week?

My Take on the Book
Miss Fox's students have many of the same issues with arguing and disagreements that normal people have with family and friends . There are always interactions that produce disagreements . The difference between Miss Fox's class and others is her clever idea of being peaceable with others for a week. She challenged her students to find ways to get along with others. Her efforts brought positive results and it became a weekly tradition.

What a great book to use in a classroom or family situations where there are disagreements.. It is definitely a springboard for discussion for problem solving through difficult, often emotional situations. It may not solve the problems, but I feel it could definitely open up communication.
