Description

Product Description

Celebrate Earth Day with Dr. Seuss and the Lorax in this classic picture book about sustainability and protecting the environment!
 

I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees.
 
Dr. Seuss’s beloved story teaches kids to treat the planet with kindness and stand up and speak up for others. Experience the beauty of the Truffula Trees and the danger of taking our earth for granted in a story that is timely, playful, and hopeful. The book’s final pages teach us that just one small seed, or one small child, can make a difference. 
 
Printed on recycled paper, this book is the perfect gift for Earth Day and for any child—or child at heart—who is interested in recycling, advocacy, and the environment, or just loves nature and playing outside.
 
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.

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)

Review

Review, USA Today:
"The Lorax. . . has been a perennial favorite of kids and parents since it was published in 1971."

From the Inside Flap

" 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.

This is a beautiful book with a great message that I want my son to learn. However, if your young reader is a huge Dr. Seuss fan, as my son is, be aware that this book has a deep message about the catastrophic effects of not being sustainable and ravaging the natural resources our planet offers us. It may have been too much for my compassionate and sensitive 5-year-old. At the end of the book he just stared at the last page for a minute then burst out crying saying he did not like the book. He cried for a long time. He was worried about the silly trees and all the animals. All the other Dr. Seuss books we own are silly, rhyme and leave him feeling happy. I’m putting it away for now and trying again to read it with him when he’s a bit older.

This book is not just a children''s book but so much more! Every family should have this as a staple in their home. It is so relevant to the world today that it is almost inconceivable that it was written in 1971, 46 years ago. The environmental issues alone are a must read for everyone. Get it for a very young child so they can begin to learn responsibility now for the world we live in.

Dear Reader,
In our opinion, we think you should read “The Lorax”.
It has really fun rhymes. One example of this is when he wrote “nail and sail”. He even had characters called Barbaloots who were in Barbaloot Suits. It teaches you an important lesson. Specifically, it teaches us to not cut down many trees. That’s why you should read “The Lorax” to your class or kids.
Sincerely,
Mrs. West’s 2nd Grade Superhero Class

My grandson and I have watched the Lorax movie too many times to count and I was excited to get the book to read at night. But come to find out the book stops at the Truffula trees all being cut down and the only seed being given to Ted - The End. It doesn''t go into the seed being planted and the trees coming back. Maybe that''s too long of a story but the best part for my grandson (from the movie) was that the good deed of planting the only seed left was showing that the Truffula trees were going to come back where it didn''t show that in the book it just kinda left it for me to explain. Again, maybe that''s originally the end of the book and the movie expanded on that but I think we''ll just keep watching the movie.

It''s nice that the book is printed on recycled paper. Other than the incorrect orientation, the quality of the book is generally good, save for some pages with white space where the printer doesn''t seem to have lined up correctly.

I could not be more disappointed in the publisher''s choice to drastically alter this story for this publishing. I purchased this book for our son and hoped to receive the same story I had been read as a child, but huge chunks of the narrative have just been heavy-handedly deleted, along with the lovely illustrations which once accompanied those sections. Many of my favourite moments of the original are altogether missing, and the characters and story have lost so much of their texture and personality, it''s a terrible shame. It should be more clearly stated on this page that the book is abridged. Not only abridged, but abridged much to its detriment I''m sad to say. Furthermore, what illustrations are left have been awkwardly and often clumsily cropped into new dimensions, cutting out masses of Seuss'' original drawings and generally messing up what used to be lovely balanced and detailed compositions. If you''re buying this book for the art as well as the story, you should know that this book just wrecks the half of the illustrations which haven''t been cut out entirely. Please find yourself a complete copy and experience this book the way Dr. Seuss intended. I''m horrified to imagine what the author would think of this blundersome hack-job edit of one of the great children''s masterpieces.

This is a lovely book - kooky Seuss charm and some strong environmental and commercial messages. It''s about as subtle as a brick through a window, but kids often like clear messages, and my son has definitely picked up on them! It''s sparked some great conversations in our house and the characters are strong, interesting and flawed, which is still not that common in a children''s book. Revisiting this book as an adult, you realise that it''s a very well-written story about family, commercialisation, the environment and redemption (I mean, it''s not "Of Mice and Men", but you know...). It''s one of the Seuss books that''s more appropriate for older children. Finally, coming up with lots of other things you could use a Thneed for is now a family joke, and a very creative one!

I bought this book as a 10th birthday present for my sons step-daughter to encourage her to read aloud to her little sister. It''s not her birthday yet so she hasn''t seen it. This 50th anniversary edition comes in a lovely solid heavy cardboard case. The hard cover is equally solid. The quality of the print and the colours are as stunning as the original. There are tick box lists inside the front and back covers for small and larger projects that help a child engage themself and friends an d family with the environmental messages contained within the text of the book. I am thrilled with the quality of this book, especially as I bought it as a gift. I''m very excited about reading it with the little girl it''s for. First job will be to decide upon a voice and an accent for the Lorax himself.

I have always loved this story, so much so that when I was in business college I used this book for a presentation on the environmental impacts of business. This is a really good book for introducing children to what happens when we abuse our environment. Perfect book for today''s society. It discusses and clearly shows how the destruction of one thing can impact the entire eco system around it. Buy this, share it with your children..start the conversations at an early age. My little one is 5 and really enjoyed the story plus the conversation we had afterwards..
