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.

Just as every snowflake is one of a kind, so are the children in our lives. This heartfelt poem describes how snowflakes fall to return as raindrops so that flowers can grow. The natural cycle shows the promise of renewal that can be found in our lives. The people of Sandy Hook, Connecticut, adopted the snowflake as a symbol of hope following the devastating tragedy that struck their community. People around the world sent thousands upon thousands of snowflakes, bringing the magic of a winter wonderland to a village forever changed by loss. Award-winning artist Steven Kellogg, formerly of Sandy Hook, responded through his art and drew on his personal memories to evoke the spirit of the community. His paintings inspired Newbery Medalist Patricia MacLachlan, his longtime friend, to write Snowflakes Fall. The powerful but simple words of Snowflakes Fall intertwine with the joyous artwork, bringing a message of hope for children and adults alike. Random House Children's Books, together with Random House, Inc., will make a significant monetary donation to child-focused organizations that will be chosen by the collaborators.
