Preserving the earth is something that I am passionate about, so reading this book made me very happy. This book has some simply wonderful ideas for using less energy, some of which I had heard before, and some of which I hadn't. Having a 'toy swap' is a lovely idea for children to still get new things to play with, but not have to throw away old toys. I also liked that this book took care to mark that sometimes we will make mistakes when starting something new, like forgetting to tur

This is a book that can be read to a class, about a class that goes green. It all starts with the teacher, Miss Fox, who decides to set an example for her class. Students start to follow her and do their part in making the world a better place. Mouse takes shorter showers and Bunny brings a cloth bag to the supermarket; and Possum turns the lights off when he goes out. The principal starts riding his bike, too, and soon the whole school is going green! As in Peace Week in Miss Fox's Class, Eilee ...more

This story is about a teacher named Miss Fox who shows up at school riding her bicycle and all of the students wonder why. Miss Fox tells them that she is going green and trying to treat the environment better. Miss Fox teaches her whole class a lesson and all of her students start "going green" as well. Pretty soon, the entire school has caught on to the trend and start riding their bikes to school, planting trees, turning off lights, etc.

I could use this book for a social studies or science u

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is a fun story to introduce the environmentally friendly concepts of Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle to children of elementary school age. Miss Fox's rules for "going green" are fairly simple. 1. Use less stuff - recycle, 2. Use less energy, 3. Use less water. And the examples were good to highlight how children can make a difference and how they can influence what their parents do as well. We enjoyed reading this book together.
A good read aloud that covers a class adopting a go green lifestyle and the different situations that call for a different judgment.

I liked how this book illustrated go green concepts without being preachy. The dialogue and supporting story is solid, not just loosely constructed to serve the purpose of writing a book on a timely topic.

Recommended for grades 1-3.
Book about going Green. The teacher rides in on a bike and the students question why she is riding a bike and not driving a car. She explains to her students that she is going green and what that means to go green. The students decide to go green and it shows the different ways that they go green and the effects that they do.

Teach your student's how to go green using Miss Fox. She teaches students to use less water, less energy, both sides of a paper, to turn of the TV when you leave, trade toys, etc. This book is a great tool to teach science and social action.
Eileen has a cute story about going green and recycling and the words are spare. The pictures are great by Anne Kennedy with lots going on in each spread. Good for teaching recycling at school. I liked the theme and can use it for work.

Both fun and useful to teach young children simple ways they can "go green."
