Long before “going green” was mainstream, Dr. Seuss’s Lorax spoke for the trees and warned of the dangers of disrespecting the environment. In this cautionary rhyming tale we learn of the Once-ler, who came across a valley of Truffula Trees and Brown Bar-ba-loots, and how his harvesting of the tufted trees changed the landscape forever. With the release of the blockbuster film version, the Lorax and his classic tale have educated a new generation of young readers not only about the importance of seeing the beauty in the world around us, but also about our responsibility to protect it.

Really good book!
This is the Best book ever!
The "Silent Spring" of Children's Literature
At a time when climate change is threatening our way of life and real life Once-lers (with their Tea Party accomplices) are in denial of it, this Dr. Seuss classic is arguably more relevant today than it was when it was first published more that forty years ago. This is the classic story of the Once-ler, a man who, like so many wealthy corporations today, depletes the Earth's resources for the sake of the bottom line. Very few books are quite as good at showing the dangers of unregulated capitalism. For these reasons this is a book that every child should read!
