Reader's Thoughts

Chelsea Bucci

This story teaches kids the importance of listening to their parents. Arthur's mom told him not to touch the computer all day. However, he really wanted to play his computer game. Arthur and Buster end up breaking the keyboard to the computer. They try every possible way to fix the keyboard from asking their friend Buster to going to a computer store to have it professional fixed. Artur finally admits to his mom after dinner that he broke it. He then gets punished for disobeying what his mother told him.

As a huge fan of the television series, I was greatly disappointed at the lazy and sub-par writing of the books. The illustrations are very poorly done as well (especially if you have older editions of the books). Not good. just watch the show; it's on at seven on PBS every morning.

I love Arthur books, always have and always will! I like this book too because there is a lesson to be learned.

Everyone knows Arthur and all his friends! This book is a good for readers who are jsut beginning longer books. Students like the story because they know Arthur and all the other characters in the story. The words used in the story are easy for the most part and the "trickier" words can be easily sounded out.

Angie Mills

Great book to use to help children talk about obedience and consequences. The children really relate to Arthur and the events in the book.

Carman

Arthur uses the computer to play a game when he is not supposed to. Arthur then "breaks" the computer. Arther stresses himself out trying to fix the computer and then he finally comes clean to his mother about what he has done. This book does a good job of showing how it is important to admit our mistakes as well as the forgiving nature of parents.I would use this book to help illustrate taking responsibility for one's actions and choices in the classroom.

Theresa

good early reader, using text to relate to the television show many of the stories hae been repeated in the show.

Danielle Simmons

This book can be something seen in our daily lives as children. This book directly relates to some parts of everyone's childhoods. We have all had that time when we were not supposed to touch or do something at home, and mom and dad tell us not to do it. In this story, Arthur, Buster, and DW are told not to touch the computer to play Deep, Dark Sea, but Arthur disobeys. They try to fix it, but they cannot. This leads to Arthur having to admit to his mom what happened. This book teaches children that obeying and respecting your mom and dad is a big thing in life. The book relates this message to children in a creative way.

Now as you have all noticed, my bookshelf is filled up with dozens of “Arthur” books since I am a huge fan of the series! “Arthur’s Computer Disaster” is about how Arthur wanted to play a computer game while his mother is away, but then gets into big trouble when he accidentally breaks his mom’s computer. “Arthur’s Computer Disaster” is one of Marc Brown’s most hilarious “Arthur” books ever created!One day, Arthur was begging his mom to let him play “Deep, Dark Sea” on her computer and his mother let him play the game. The next day, Arthur wanted to use the computer to play the rest of the game, but his mother told him to not use the computer since she has to use the computer to do her taxes. However, when Arthur’s mother had to run back to the office that day, Arthur and Buster played with Arthur’s mother’s computer anyway. But when Arthur and Buster played with the computer too much, they ended up knocking the keyboard to the ground the screen went blank!Marc Brown never ceases to amaze me with his lovable characters in the “Arthur” series. This time, Marc Brown has done an excellent job at writing this story as he explains the importance of listening to your parents and the consequences of not listening to your parents’ warnings. I love the way that Marc Brown shows the consequences that Arthur has to face when he disobeys his mother and that will help show children about the consequences of disobedience. Marc Brown’s illustrations are as always highly creative as the characters have animal heads and human bodies and I loved the expressions on the characters’ faces especially of Arthur’s scared expression when he accidentally breaks his mother’s computer.Overall, “Arthur’s Computer Disaster” is a brilliant book for children who need to know about the consequences of disobedience while having a great time with Arthur and the gang! I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book (but when you really think about it, the “Arthur” series is pretty kid-friendly overall).

In this story Arthur loves to play his Deep Dark Sea computer game. His mother tells him not to play the game because she needs the computer for work. When she is gone Arthur and his friend Buster start to play the game anyways. Something went wrong and Arthur thought he broke the computer. Him, Buster and D. W. went out to find ways to try and fix the computer before their mother got home and figured out that Arthur disobeyed orders. They were out of luck and when their mother came home Arthur confessed what he had done when his mother went in to use the computer. She said it was a simple problem and she knew how to fix it but she was still disappointed in Arthur for disobeying. He was grounded for computer games for a week and him and his sister had to go get ready for bed. When they were waiting for their mother to come tuck them in they discovered that she was playing the video game and liked it as much as Arthur did and could not stop playing so the kids went on to bed.

When they were waiting for their mother to come tuck them in they discovered that she was playing the video game and liked it as much as Arthur did and could not stop playing so the kids went on to bed.I do like how his Mom punished Arthur, but I don't like how she didn't tuck them into bed because she was sucked into playing a computer game. I think she should have stopped long enough to say goodnight.
