I looked everywhere for this book, thank-you. My daughter will be so excited Christmas morning. Dr. Seuss is the best.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Story; Not Very Seuss-like Art June 26 2004
By MB
Format:Hardcover
The concept of this book is from Dr. Seuss- he drew sketches and some verses before he died. The details of the story is from another writer who does a wonderful job. I believe the author did a terrific job keeping Dr. Seuss's touch on the book and really made it a wonderful story. But I dislike the art. I think the art makes the book one that I don't want to have. The art is done by Lane Smith, the same guy who did work on 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' and he drew this book and the characters for that movie the same way. Some of the character drawings in the book, especially one of a clown that appears on one page, are rather scary-looking. I believe the artist strayed completely away from Dr. Seuss's concept for the book. In Seuss's sketches that he did before he died, he drew the main character, Ms. Bonkers as a sweet old, gray-haired teacher. He also drew a sketch of another lead character, the school's principal. Lane Smith drew Ms. Bonkers as a young, blonde teacher who I imagine, is supposed to be rather attractive. He draws the principal in the book somewhat scary. In Dr. Seuss's sketches for the concept of the book, Dr. Seuss drew and versed that the principal liked to watch Ms. Bonkers jump on a trampoline, which was cute and funny when you see a gray-haired woman in a long, bulky, old-lady dress down to her ankles jumping upside down in mid-air with the old principal watching humorously in the far background, as Dr. Seuss drew in his concept sketch. It is not so cute, and somewhat perverted I think, when Lane Smith draws a young Ms. Bonkers jumping up in the air in a not-so-long dress, with the scary-looking principal standing underneath, looking upwards. We own just about every Dr. Seuss book that he made. We got this one from the library to see if wanted to buy it... Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Student Teacher Feb. 24 2004

I absolutely love this book! My Language Arts teacher in my Credential Program, in Chula Vista, read us this book before we had to take a huge test. I was so inspired I bought my own copy. It is a wonderful book for all teachers to have. Read it to your students before those standardized tests! Trust me... they will love it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Hooray For Diffendoofer Day! by July 15 2003
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book is amazing! It has a personality of its own. It would be so awesome if my school was like that. My teachers would be teaching frogs to dance, ducks to sing, and how to tell the difference between chrysanthemums and miniature poodles! Who would want to leave a school where you can yell in the library? Even the fact that the school is called Diffendoofer makes me want to learn there.
The children love the unique things about the school but the principal threatens that if the students don't do well on the test they will have to go to Flobbertown where everything is the same.
The teacher is confident that they will do well. She tells them, "I'm certain you'll succeed. We've taught you that the earth is round, that red and white make pink, and something else that matters more we've taught you how to think."
I think this book is for everyone; parents will enjoy it as well as children!

5.0 out of 5 stars Waited Too Long To Enjoy June 19 2003
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I have known about this book for quite awhile but I am ashamed to admit that I had never picked it up. This is a delightful read. As a teacher it reminded me of how all our students see us so differently. My favorite line is about Miss Bonkers-"I'm not certain what she teaches, But I'm glad she teaches me."

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great one! June 12 2003
Format:Hardcover
This book is great! I teach school and I think I might start using this as a lead-in to begin reviewing for standardized tests. Just to increase student morale with a little Seuss humor!
Would also be great to amuse teachers at the last faculty meeting before standardized testing begins. Highly recommended.

By A Customer

Would you like to read about school where a lot of extraordinary stuff happens? Then Hooray for Diffendoofer Day is the right book for you. It is about a kid who tries to save the school. Find out if he does in the book, Hooray for Diffendoofer Day by Dr. Suess. I thought it was a fun book to read!
