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.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sara Rofofsky Marcus
A teacher's turning green encourages her class to become more eco-friendly. This, in turn, inspires the whole school to turn green. Through simple sentences and concepts appropriate to young children, Spinelli draws attention to the easy and fun ways children can help save their environment. The colorful pictures draw attention to the page and help illustrate the concepts presented through the text. This work is valuable in a science, ecology, and community curriculum, as well as in showing how students can work together to bring about a large change. Not only the teacher brings up ideas, but she encourages the children to do so. Both in class and alone, the students' thought processes are demonstrated as to how they work to save the environment, in both humorous and straight situations that can occur to almost any child. This volume reintroduces Miss Fox's class where serious subjects become fun and inspiring for children. Reviewer: Sara Rofofsky Marcus
School Library Journal
K-Gr 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
Kirkus Reviews
As in their earlier release, Peace Week in Miss Fox's Class (2008), Spinelli and Kennedy present a blueprint for social action. When her students wonder why Miss Fox is cycling to school, she answers that she's "going green" to cut down on pollution. The children enthusiastically embrace her new attitude: Mouse abjures the long, hot showers she loves; Squirrel tamps down his consumerist lust for a new pair of sneakers. The children adapt to their privation with enormous ease. Aside from a remark or two about "keeping our earth healthy," Miss Fox is silent about impending environmental doom, leaving the kids' commitment to green living curiously without any sense of how their individual efforts make a collective impact. Does only half the job. (Picture book. 4-8)
