Item Description...
The students of Diffendoofer School celebrate their unusual teachers and curriculum, including Miss Fribble who teaches laughing, and Miss Bonkers who teaches frogs to dance

Publishers Description
Started by Dr. Seuss, finished by Jack Prelutsky, and illustrated by Lane Smith, "Hooray for Diffendoofer Day " is a joyous ode to individuality starring unsinkable teacher Miss Bonkers and the quirky Diffendoofer School (which must prove it has taught its students how to think--or have them sent to dreary Flobbertown). Included is an introduction by Dr. Seuss's longtime editor explaining how the book came to be and reproductions of Dr. Seuss's original pencil sketches and hand-printed notes for the book--a true find for all Seuss collectors Jack Prelutsky and Lane Smith pay homage to the Good Doctor in their own distinctive ways, the result of which is the union of three one-of-a-kind voices in a brand-new, completely original book that is greater than the sum of its parts. For all of us who will never forget our school days and that special teacher, here is a book to give and to get.

More About Dr. Seuss, Jack Prelutsky & Lane Smith

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! For 30 years, Jack Prelutsky's inventive poems have inspired legions of children to fall in love with poetry. His outrageously silly poems have tickled even the most stubborn funny bones, while his darker verses have spooked countless late-night readers. His award-winning books include Tyrannosaurus Was a Beast, The Dragons Are Singing Tonight, The Random House Book of Poetry for Children, and The Beauty of the Beast.
While attending a Bronx, New York, grade school, Prelutsky took piano and voice lessons and was a regular in school shows. Surprisingly, Prelutsky developed a healthy dislike for poetry due to a teacher who -left me with the impression that poetry was the literary equivalent of liver. I was told it was good for me, but I wasn't convinced.-
In his early twenties, Prelutsky spent six months drawing imaginary animals in ink and watercolor. One evening, he wrote two dozen short poetry verses to accompany each drawing. A friend encouraged him to show them to an editor, who loved his poems (although not his artwork!) and urged him to keep writing. Prelutsky listened and he is still busy writing.
Jack Prelutsky lives on Mercer Island in Washington with his wife, Carolynn.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Hooray for this book!  May 2, 2008
We are huge Dr. Seuss fans in our house and I do not think there is one book we have not read from everything he has ever written. Even though he never got to complete this book before his death, the book stays true to the ideas he had for the book and the combined authors and illustrators have done an excellent job in finishing the work that Dr. Seuss started.

In this day and age where everything seems to be done in a cookie cutter fashion, and standardized everything seems to be the norm, this book takes a look at what it would be like if a child could go to a school where the learning takes place over end of grade testing, or learning for the sake of a test score. The teachers show kids that learning can be fun, and the teachers are anything but ordinary. They go way beyond thinking outside the box to teach the children the things they need to learn, and imaginations run wild. If there was a school that existed that taught the way these teachers do, I would be first in line to sign my kids up! My son absolutely loves this book and he even thinks it would be cool to have a teacher like Miss Bonkers!

As an added bonus, the back of the book shows the work that Dr. Seuss had done for this book, along with hand written text and pictures. While my son does not really have an interest in that part of the book, I thoroughly enjoyed looking at the process he used to create a book. If I could give this book 6 stars, I would. You will LOVE this book!
I use this when I speak at graduation ceremonies for teachers.  Apr 26, 2008
Thinking out of the box....the true legacy of Dr. Seuss. Not one way of teaching - but multiple ways of teaching to excite a child and have them truly enjoy learning. A great teacher goes beyond teaching to a minimal state test. A great teacher teachers their students "to think." Our children are not robots and one size never fits all. I am a clinical faculty member working with teachers in a teacher preparation program which trains teachers to be "diffendooferous" and to always grow, learn, and think out of the box for the benefit of their students. This book is a perfect way to sum up the experience. I have even animated a PowerPoint presentation to go with this dynamic reading which is a big hit at our graduation ceremony each semester. Thank you for this wonderful book.
Great Professional Development Icebreaker   Apr 2, 2008
Our curriculum department were presenting a PD on testing to the faculty. We were trying to find a different and cute way to present the information. We read Diffendoofer Day and created a powerpoint to show the pictures to the audience. It was a success and after we ask the participants to create a page for our very own diffendoofer day book. Very hard book to find, but of course this site came to the rescue.

No Child Left Behind Should Read  May 21, 2007
I think Dr. Seuss makes a very valid point in this book that the writers and supporters of continual testing should read. If we do our jobs as educators, and I am one, then we teach kids and not to the test, and in the end, the kids can pass the test. I use this book for my high school students prior to taking standardized tests. I also gave a copy to my principal.
Hooray for Dr Seuss and Friends!  Jan 22, 2007
A wonderful publication incorporating concepts and some rhymes of the late Dr Seuss with collage-art and further rhymes of two living artists. A tribute to both Dr Seuss and to the wonderful teachers of the world. Positive and inspiring. A great gift for that special teacher in your child's life!
