Annotations for Miss Fox's Class Goes Green


Albert Whitman & Co
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.

Baker & Taylor
Inspired by Miss Fox's explanation of why she rides a bike to school, the entire class decides to "go green," performing simple, common sense acts of conservation such as taking shorter showers, turning off lights and using cloth shopping bags, while encouraging others to do their part as well.
