Pros: cute illustrations, fun rhymes, great message!

Classic, wonderful Dr. Seuss makes us consider what life might be like if we cut down all the trees... by talking to us through the irrascible Lorax (he speaks for the trees!) and entertaining with his signature rhyming and creative illustrations.

Pros: Great Message given in a fun way

Cons: A Little Long for Really Young Children

We have read this to our son soooo many times I could almost recite it verbatim.  He loves it and understands the message that if no one cares to save the environment it literally deteriorates around you until nothing is left.  It is not as comical as other Seuss books because I think it was meant to deliver an urgency where the environment is concerned but, it is Seuss just the same and wonderful at that!

 

 

The Lorax (Classic Seuss)
Description:

"UNLESS someone like you...cares a whole awful lot...nothing is going to get better...It's not." Long before saving the earth became a global concern, Dr. Seuss, speaking through his character the Lorax, warned against mindless progress and the danger it posed to the earth's natural beauty. "The big, colorful pictures and the fun images, word plays and rhymes make this an amusing exposition of the ecology crisis."—School Library Journal. Illus. in full color.
