The Lorax - My Favorite Dr. Seuss Book

by kab

The Lorax is an amazing book by Dr. Seuss that addresses environmental conservation in a simple and direct way that will teach kids (and adults) about the importance of trees.

The Lorax: An Amazing Dr. Seuss Book on Conservation

My Favorite Dr. Seuss Book

Dr. Seuss has so many amazing books that it is hard to decide on just one as a favorite, but for me the one that stands out is The Lorax.  This book is beautiful and important story on the importance of conserving our environment. 

In the story, the Lorax, does what the trees cannot - speak up.  "I am the Lorax, I speak for the trees".  When the trees are being senselessly cut down, the Lorax gives reminders and warnings about the dangers of destroying the environment. 

This story is one that spans the generations.  People of ALL ages can enjoy this book, and when it was published in 1971 it attracted many to the environmental movement.  Plus, The Lorax has a sweet walrus mustache!

Eco Bags Help the Environment

As we learn from The Lorax, we must all do our part to help preserve our environment.  We need to avoid deforestation, water contamination, and air pollution. 

Carrying a reusable bag with you to the store should be a part of your plan to be a part of the solution and not a part of the problem. By carrying a reusable bag with The Lorax on it, you will remind others of their responsibility to the environment in a fun and cute way.

It's so sad to see what is happening to our forests and trees. This book is a great lesson and message about the environment.

Didn't know that the Lorax was coming to theaters soon. Good to see that the Seuss book is being used to teach conservation. That Dr. Seuss was ahead of his time.
