    1. I read this book with two of my students and they loved it. "Hooray for Diffendoofer Day!" is a book about individuality. Miss Bonkers teaches how to think at a school that allows everyone to be themselves. The students then result in getting the highest test scores, because they are able to pull information from their experiences.


    2. The last unfinished book by Doctor Seuss about a quirky teacher- ha! Right up my alley as a former art teacher and now homeschool mom. I loved this book because it's about doing things different and teaching kids how to think and be creative vs making everything the same and teaching just to take a test. Shouldn't education be more then just facts? I think so- I want my kids exposed to more then other people's ideas and past wars and memorizing dates they will soon forget, I want to teach them h [...]


    3. Oh, no! It's a terrible thing as Dr. Seuss takes a look at conformity versus freedom! Dr. Seuss created Hooray for Diffendoofer Day!, and Jack Prelutsky finished this story while Lane Smith did the illustrations. A picture book for children ages 4–8.My TakeThe kids will love this! There are lots of opportunities for laughing and coming up with ideas for other kinds of classes besides the ones that Miss Bobble and Miss Fribble teach…among others. There's Miss Clotte's overzealousness and Mr. [...]


    4. This was the last book Dr. Suess was working on at the time of his death. Left unfinished, this book could have easily been lost, if not for his editor who got two other authors to come in and help finish it. With this said, this is a Dr Suess book and it is not. No one can really finish a work like this and be fully faithful to this literary master. The book is good celebrating diversity in schools. Book has the look and some of the sound of Dr Suess but you can feel the influence of the other [...]



    5. This was one of my favorite books as a kid. It was one of the reasons I decided being spontaneous isn't a bad thing. I fell in love with this.


    6. GENERAL:- about a school with unconventional teachers that is facing a standardized testLIKES:- as an aspiring teacher, I loved this so much and was so inspired. However, I think that everyone, even people who are no longer in school communities, can relate and be inspired by this.- So fun and smartDISLIKES:- not completely written by Dr. Seuss, as he didn't finish it before he died. It was finished by two other writers, who did great jobs but this isn't pure Seuss.


    7. The students of Diffendoofer School love their unique and entirely bizarre teachers. They learn in an unconventional way to say the least. Their teachers teach listening, smelling, laughing, yelling, tying knots, how to pepper a pigeon, or how to saddle a leopard or lizard. Miss Bonkers, the narrator’s favorite teacher, teaches everything under the sun. The principal, Mr. Lowe, finds out that the students must take a standardized test to prove they are learning effectively and worries that Dif [...]


    8. “Hooray for Diffendoofer Day!” is one of the most unique books created by Dr. Seuss since the book was created after his death and since the book was partially written by Jack Prelutsky and illustrated by Lane Smith. “Hooray for Diffendoofer Day!” is definitely a great book for fans of Dr. Seuss’ books.Dr. Seuss’ and Jack Prelutsky’s writing combined creates one hilarious and creative story about one of the most inventive and surreal schools in the world. Both Dr. Seuss and Jack Pr [...]


    9. I enjoyed reading this book. I liked how it was somewhat similar to how school systems are now with testing. This book was about Diffendoofer School. At this school the teachers teach many different things like listening, smelling, laughing, and yelling. The principal announces that the students must take a standardized test that they must pass or else they school will be torn down and they will have to go to a new school. But because the students were encouraged to think they ended up passing t [...]


    10. A teaching colleague recommended this book recently and I'm so glad she did! This book was a work in progress that Ted never got to finish, but thanks to the efforts of two artful gentlemen and Dr. Seuss's editor, this story was finished and brought to life post-mortem. If you are a teacher in today's test-based pressure cooker, you will appreciate Hooray for Diffendoofer Day!





    11. Read my full review at: PerfectlyTolerableThe story is good.  It is classic Dr. Seuss.  Lots of rhymes and made up words.  The made up words in this book are easy enough to read. The problem with this book is the artwork.  I don't like the pictures, and they are do not feel like Dr. Seuss.  There are a couple characters mixed in that are drawn in his normal style, but the majority of the book doesn't have the right feel.  At the end of the book they have some original sketches from Dr. Seu [...]


    12. Book Level: 3.8Summary: The children who attend Diffendoofer school are worried about an upcoming test. Have their eccentric teachers prepared them enough?Writing Trait: Word Choice – This mentor text demonstrates how writers can play with words to create new meanings and enhance the flow of the story. With smart word choice, this story briefly introduces many characters. As a writing assignment, I would challenge my students to brainstorm different ideas for characters by writing a few lists [...]


    13. Picture Book #2: This book is about Diffendoofer school where the teachers are crazy and different. The school is forced to take a test and if they fail they will have to attend the boring school. The school ends up getting the highest score because the teachers taught the students how to creatively think. This is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books even though it is very different from his other books. I will definitely read this in my classroom for a fun read and to remind my students that crea [...]


    14. Although my 6 year enjoyed this book, it made him a little sad. When we were done, he said sadly, "Dr. Seuss died and didn't get to finish this book." Which of course made me a little sad too. But I told him Dr. Seuss wrote this story and started it and wanted us to be able to read it and would be very happy that we liked it even if other people had to help him finish it.


    15. This book was fun to read. It had words that rhymed and a fun plot to go along with it. The school is very different from the rest. The teachers all teach different things in a unique way that gives the school its character and the students love it.


    16. This is a Dr Seuss idea with execution by Jack Prelutsky and Lane Smith. I love it all the way round! I wish this was my school, I would have had a ball. My fav has to be the Librarian (being one myself) Miss Loon. Funtastic.


    17. Started by Dr. Seuss and completed by Jack Prelustky and Lane Smith this book is filled with #laughs for people of all #ages



    18. E SEUGR:Lexile:This is a great book to read right before giving any kind of test. It shows that sometimes tests do show the KNOWLEDGE you have. There are some interesting things that this set of students learn. They work on learning COMMUNICATION skills and the teacher and students show APPRECIATION to each other.



    19. This is a great read aloud for a class from a teacher during Dr. Seuss week! This is a new one for me and heavily recommended by a friend and colleague. So happy it was! This is a late work - started by Seuss, finished by Prelutsky. The copy I read and shared with my class even had his found notes and drawings for the book. Great in giving examples to a class on the writing process! My class loved this as a read aloud. It rhymes, is funny, has great illustrations, wild imagination, but connectab [...]



    20. Genre: OtherSummary: A child who lives in Dinkerville, goes to a very different school where the teachers make the rules. Each teacher is unique and teaches different subjects/concepts. The principal is very sad all the time because he is worried if the students are learning what they need to know. One day the principal announces that the students must take a test and if they do not pass the school will be shut down. The students pass and the teachers celebrate their unique teaching styles decla [...]


    21. When I was in second grade I was introduced to my now favorite Children’s book, Hooray for Diffendoofer Day by Dr. Seuss. This book is a great story but also has the same qualities of all Dr. Seuss’s books. The characters are unusual, the names are outrageous and he drastically describes the differences between opposites. For example, when talking about the school they don’t want to turn into, Dr. Seuss describes it as “dreary Flobbertown”. In the book, the main character is never name [...]


    22. I'm always wary of artistic works released after an artists death. There are reasons artists don't release everything they do, and to go against this wish smacks of gold-digging. But Random House has done a fantastic job with this work - which Dr. Seuss was obviously excited about, but never had time to finish. Jack Prelutsky and Lane Smith have taken some a few sketches and rhymes from Dr Seuss and turned them into a coherent story. Instead of a real Dr Seuss book I look at this more as a tribu [...]


    23. From the mind of Dr. Seuus but with some help from JAck Prelutsky and Lane Smith, the students of Diffendoofer School love their unique and entirely bizarre teachers. They learn in an unconventional way to say the least. Their teachers teach listening, smelling, laughing, yelling, tying knots, how to pepper a pigeon, or how to saddle a leopard or lizard. Miss Bonkers, the narrator’s favorite teacher, teaches everything under the sun. The principal, Mr. Lowe, finds out that the students must ta [...]
