Book Review | Peace Week in Miss Fox’s Class
by Eileen Spinelli, Illustrated by Anne Kennedy

Score: 3

No, this is not a Jewish book, at least, not in the sense that there are clearly identifiable Jewish characters and a clearly identifiable Jewish theme. However, this is a book that any Jewish school could use to convey the Jewish value of Shalom Bayit, Peace in the House, or in this case, Peace in the Classroom.

The language of the book is simple enough that even the youngest child can understand. The dilemmas faced by the students are realistic and the solutions easy to appreciate. The artwork is expressive, colorful and fun. It would be easy to implement a “Peace Week” in your own school using the ideas in this book.

I recommend this book to Jewish libraries.
