A teacher and former student of the great BRADBURY
1 April 2005 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I too remember seeing this movie in my 7th grade Literature class and when I decided to become a teacher and it was part of our curriculum, I was thrilled to experience it again. It is a great story for children to learn Science Ficton from as well as do a compare contrast piece between the book and the movie, not to mention the lessons of treating others with respect and kindness.

As I sit here and look at my South Central, Los Angeles Students gazing eagerly into the television screen as the fill out their Venn Diagrams, I realize some stories are timeless, and ALL SUMMER IN A DAY is one of them.

Also: enjoy Keith Coogan in a bratty role preceding his performances in such hits as Adventures in Babysitting and Toy Soldiers
