The book concludes with a fascinating look at how it came into being, with original sketches and handwritten notes by Dr. Seuss himself.Read Less

This gives a creative insight into a school that does things a little differently. All the teachers teach about things that the students need to know for everyday living. They teach in a fun and exciting way, unlike the schools down the street that teach the answers to tests. In the end, the students at this school are able to do very well on tests because they have learned important life skills in a fun, supportive environment. This is a very cute book for children and teaches an important lesson to adults and children alike.
