Lorax Paperback – Import, 2004 by Dr Seuss (Author)

This is a great book. The actual size of the book is a little larger than other Dr. Seuss book I have but I like the larger size. This is a great story with a positive message. The illustrations are colorful and fun, and help to keep my kids engaged. The book is a little long so I have a hard time keeping my youngest child’s attention during the whole story, but our toddler loves it! I would definitely recommend this book to all families with children at home. This book would also make a great gift for a child. Check it out!

Amazon.com Review When Dr. Seuss gets serious, you know it must be important. Published in 1971, and perhaps inspired by the "save our planet" mindset of the 1960s, The Lorax is an ecological warning that still rings true today amidst the dangers of clear-cutting, pollution, and disregard for the earth’s environment. In The Lorax, we find what we’ve come to expect from the illustrious doctor: brilliantly whimsical rhymes, delightfully original creatures, and weirdly undulating illustrations. But here there is also something more–a powerful message that Seuss implores both adults and children to heed. The now remorseful Once-ler–our faceless, bodiless narrator–tells the story himself. Long ago this enterprising villain chances upon a place filled with wondrous Truffula Trees, Swomee-Swans, Brown Bar-ba- loots, and Humming-Fishes. Bewitched by the beauty of the Truffula Tree tufts, he greedily chops them down to produce and mass-market Thneeds. ("It’s a shirt. It’s a sock. It’s a glove. It’s a hat.") As the trees swiftly disappear and the denizens leave for greener pastures, the fuzzy yellow Lorax (who speaks for the trees "for the trees have no tongues") repeatedly warns the Once-ler, but his words of wisdom are for naught. Finally the Lorax extricates himself from the scorched earth (by the seat of his own furry pants), leaving only a rock engraved "UNLESS." Thus, with his own colorful version of a compelling morality play, Dr. Seuss teaches readers not to fool with Mother Nature. But as you might expect from Seuss, all hope is not lost–the Once-ler has saved a single Truffula Tree seed! Our fate now rests in the hands of a caring child, who becomes our last chance for a clean, green future. (Ages 4 to 8) –This text refers to the Audible Audio Edition edition.


Lorax Paperback – Import, 2004 by Dr Seuss (Author) Review

I love this story but my 4 year old did not. After we finished it he said did anybody ever come back. He was very sad and said he didn’t like it and needed a happy book. lol. So if your child is very matter of fact this may not be the book. But I recommend it anyways. -Read Reviews-

Basically, there is nothing more that you need to know than this book remains a classic that is especially needed right now. The fact it is printed with recycled material is pretty great as well. I read this book to my 4yo and he brings many questions.
