Plot Summary

Miss Fox is tired of hearing her young students quarrel. So she announces Peace Week—no more squabbling for one whole week! The children chime in with their own rules: no fighting, don't say mean things, and help others.  Throughout the week each of the little animals gets a chance to practice this new behavior.  When Polecat teases Bunny for wearing a bright yellow sweater, instead of poking fun back at Polecat, Bunny admires his sweater.

Soon, to their surprise, the animals are finding that it's easy to help others, take turns, and say nice things, even when someone is grumpy to them.  Wouldn't it be nice, Squirrel says, if every week could be Peace Week?

Reviews

"the common scenarios make this a fun story that will open discussions with bullies, victims, and bystanders." Booklist

"Kennedy’s watercolor, ink, and dye illustrations feature an endearing cast of animal characters with expressive faces." School Library Journal

"This gentle lesson on the Golden Rule is enhanced by Anne Kenndy's delightful illustrations that capture the emotions of each character. The examples are universal and will appeal to all young children. An excellent addition to any picture book collection."
