Miss Fox's class is back, and this time the students are lethargic and cranky until they learn to eat better, exercise, and get more sleep. "This class is going to get fit!" Miss Fox says. "So we can be ready for Field Day?" asks Frog. "Not just Field Day," says Miss Fox. "For every day!"...

Miss Fox's Class Shapes Up Reviews
Miss Fox's class is all worn out. They are sleepy and have rumbly bellies from not eating breakfast and they are wheezing from just a little exercise. Miss Fox decides to get everyone fit and healthy. She gives them healthy recipes and gets them all to exercise. On field day the class wins first prize because they have become so fit. Everyone supports each other and is happy for all the activity. I really like the message of this book. Seems like kids today are much bigger and lazier than in the past. They spend too much time on computers and in front of tvs. It is nice to read a fun book about kids being healthy and active and with parents supporting the lifestyle.
Wordy and somewhat preachy in the vein of bibliotherapy and behavior modeling books of the late '80s and early '90s, this picture book tells the story of Miss Fox and her class of lethargic children, who learn about the virtues of exercise. The message is good, but the execution is outdated and will hardly appeal to kids. For children's books that are more likely to spark an interest in exercise, I recommend Hop, Hop, Jump! by Lauren Thompson or Get Up and Go! by Nancy Carlson.
This book is a little too politically correct for my liking. EJP wanted to bring home one titled, "Miss Fox's Class Goes Green" but I stopped her on that one! However, the illustrations are good and there are lots of different animals which EJP likes to look at; she especially likes to find the frog on each page.
Addresses the obesity epidemic among grade school children in a fun and engaging way.Handles objections about eating right, movement, planning time in the day for exercise, and snacks in a way that doesn't make you think this is a lesson plan. Endearing characters learn they can lead a healthier lifestyle that provides benefits the characters only discover by doing.
This book is great! I really enjoyed the story and the illustrations were excellent. :) I hope my nieces will like this book, too, as I have added it to the growing list of titles I plan to gift them one day. :)
Clearly well-intentioned, but overly didactic. Serviceable, but I can't say I'd want to use it as anything other than instructional material.
Miss Fox's class is having trouble running on the playground, and eating right at lunch. They begin a fitness unit in class. They get in shape and get ready for the field day.
