Plight against destroying the environment and a fun introduction to ecology to children; Dr. Seuss’ personal favorite of his books
Dr. Seuss Classic Seuss Series The Lorax
A boy living in a polluted area visits a loner man called the Once-ler living on the Street of the Lifted Lorax. The boy pays the man 15 cents, a nail, and the shell of a great-great-great grandfather snail to hear the legend of how the Lorax was lifted away.
Dr. Seuss, speaking through his character the Lorax, warns against mindless progress, corporate greed, and in consequence destroying the Earth’s natural beauty.
Dr. Seuss wrote several of the most popular children’s books of all time, sold over 600 million copies, and his works were translated into more than 20 languages by the time of his death in 1991.
'’The big, colorful pictures and the fun images, word plays and rhymes make this an amusing exposition of the ecology crisis.’‘— School Library Journal.
