Children's Book Review: Miss Fox's Class Goes Green
Miss Fox's Class Goes Green
Written by: Eileen Spinelli
Illustrated by: Anne Kennedy
Published by: Albert Whitman & Company, 2009
Noted author Spinelli re-teams with illustrator Kennedy in this follow-up to their "Peace Week in Miss Fox's Class" that puts Miss Fox's class on a mission to go green. Includes practical suggestions for kids and families wanting to protect the environment.
* In honor of Eearth Day we read this book to the kids the other night. I think it's a great book to read to young kids to give them ideas on how they can help be "green." Miss Fox and her class come up with ideas to help keep the earth healthy. As we read through this book it was refreshing to see that our family already does a lot of the things mentioned. We always turn off lights when we leave a room, we remind the kids to turn the faucets off and take quick showers, and we try to use our own cloth shopping bags (when I remember to take them back out to the car!). Of course, there's always more that we can be doing but we're definitely headed in the right start. I think it was also a good reminder for the kids that mommy and daddy aren't being bossy when we ask them to do certain things, we are trying to be "green."
Family Rating: 1 1/2 thumbs up.
