Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—In this fourth picture book about Miss Fox and her class, the teacher helps her students adopt a healthier lifestyle. They visit Nurse Weasel, who gives them nutritious recipes that incorporate their favorite foods. At recess, they do fun exercises with Mr. Moose, the principal, and Mr. Mole, the custodian; in class, they share solutions for sleeplessness. A few children weaken when they are around video games or candy, but their classmates are able to distract them with a game of tag or a healthy treat. During Field Day, Miss Fox's students win the Mud Jump, the Potato Roll, and the Banana Relay, but they don't receive their prizes because of a mix-up at the store. The youngsters happily accept the "I Love Knitting" buttons, though, because they realize that the benefits of being fit are better than any other reward they could receive. The cartoonlike watercolor and ink illustrations are filled with movement and detail. The "Health and Fitness Tips" on the endpapers are accompanied by scenes from the story.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada
Children's Literature - Miranda McClain
Miss Fox is back and this time she is whipping her tired, sluggish class into shape. Although most are not teaching a classroom full of forest animals, teachers across the country will be able to relate to the problems Miss Fox is having with her students. They are terribly out of shape and suffering from poor nutrition but Miss Fox has a plan to get them up to speed just in time for field day. With the help of the school nurse, principal, and custodian she soon has her students and their families eating better and being more active. She even gets a skeptical mouse to finally try eating a carrot and solves frogs sleep problem. The terrifically funny illustrations save the story from being to preachy. Fans of other books about Miss Fox's class will enjoy this latest addition to the series and there are even a few helpful tips for youngsters who are inspired to get themselves into better shape.
