Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2—Spinelli and Kennedy speak to nascent environmentalists in a lighthearted tone while still stressing why it is important to "go green." Miss Fox and her students have constructive conversations, share conservation tips, and make informed choices about using energy. The colorful watercolor and ink illustrations go hand in hand with the lively presentation.—Sarah O'Holla, Village Community School, New York City END

All the animal children looked VERY surprised when they saw Mrs. Fox driving to the school on her bicycle. She had a little basket in the front to carry her pocket book and whatever else she needed for school. Of course she had on her helmet. The children started to ask questions and wanted to know just why she wasn't driving her car. She said that "cars pollute the air" and she was only going to drive when necessary. "I'm going green." It sounded like something that the rest of the class would be interested in and they had a little discussion and decided to go for it . . . green that is. Mrs. Fox wrote some goals on the blackboard:

1. Use less stuff-recycle
2. Use less energy.
3. Use less water.

Some of the children joked around. "I can stop taking showers," said Frog. Squirrel claimed he could save paper by not doing his homework. After the silliness they got around to business and became more serious. They could turn off lights when leaving a room, sharpen crayons, take shorter showers, use heavier blankets instead of turning up the heat, have a toy exchange and use things like sneakers until they wore out. Squirrel really wanted to "Super-flash Bubble-soled Buzzard sneakers," but decided against it. Were Raccoon, Mouse, Frog, Squirrel, Bunny, Bear, Possum and the other kids at school really going to be able to go green?

This is a great little tale to introduce the concept of environmental protection or the green movement to your own children or classroom. This book makes a serious issue fun, entertaining and instructive. The storyline was chipper and I enjoyed the way the classroom got together, both at home and at school, to achieve a goal. The artwork was very vibrant and the animal characters were very appealing.

I LOVE all of the Miss Fox series. Was so glad to see a Going Green book come out. And of course, it is FABULOUS. Miss Fox does it again by getting her class to Go Green with her. What a perfect Earth Day read for students. It has lots of information for kids on ways they can go green. It will spark ideas in kids on ways they can conserve, recycle, reuse etc etc.

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.
