Dr. Seuss Book

2 03 2011

For Dr. Seuss’s 107th birthday, we wanted to feature one of our favorite Dr. Seuss books, The Lorax.

The Lorax

This is a great story about how we effect our environment. In this book, a character who calls himself the Once-ler moves to a town and cuts down all of the Truffula Trees to turn them into garments. The Lorax doesn’t agree with the Once-ler and what he is doing. He speaks for the trees and tells the Once-ler that he must stop. The Once-ler doesn’t listen however, and the town becomes completely treeless, and the Lorax leaves. In the end, the Once-ler gives a young, boy the last Truffula Tree seed, so he can plant it and create a whole new city full of trees.

This book reminds us about our impact on the environment and that we can each do our part to help.
