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.

Fast-forward to the near future. Apple and Google have been replaced by Gnosis, a monolith corporation that provides universal access to technology, health care, and education to all American citizens. At age 16 everyone is given a Lux, a device designed to make people their happiest selves. Like everyone else, sixteen-year-old Rory Vaughn knows the key to a happy, healthy life is doing everything the decision-making app on her Lux tells her to. With hard work and Lux's help, she is accepted into Theden Academy, an elite boarding school funded by Gnosis. There, she will be trained to become a member of intellectuals who graduate to the upper echelons of society. But it doesn't take long for Rory to realize that not everything is as it seems at Theden. When she meets North, a talented hacker who lives on the fringe, she begins to fall for his outsider way of life. As Rory starts going against Lux's recommendations and instead listening to the voice within (the voice that kids are taught to ignore), she'll begin to uncover the truth about Theden, her mother's death, and the latest model Lux.

When you think of art, do you think of painting and sculpture? Bob Raczka shows us that even these traditional artistic mediums can be created in untraditional ways. Art can also be draped, chiseled, pasted and drizzled. But unusual approaches to painting and sculpture are only the beginning. We learn that art comes in many forms - a wall or a ceiling, a lamp or a rug, a goblet or a musical instrument. Simple rhyming verse pairs beautifully with reproductions of twenty-seven works of art, ranging from 17,000-year-old cave paintings to some very interesting contemporary creations. Each piece is as unique as the artist themselves, and each is included here to expand our notions of what art is.Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 5/7/2003Pages: 32Reading Level: Age 7 and Up
