The Lorax is a classic children’s story by Dr. Seuss that has long been used to illustrate the devastation that can happen when humans neglect the environment. This insightful book is set in the barren future, where the unseen Once-ler recounts how the problems of today are caused by cutting down all the beautiful Truffula Trees despite the warning of the Lorax. This wonderful story encourages readers to care for the environment, while providing hope that the world can be changed if enough of us care enough to make a positive difference. Read the story with your children, or watch the original video version together, then discuss as a family! You might want to ask some thoughtful prompting questions when discussing the story with your children.
As a follow-up, you may invite your kiddos to play some Lorax-themed games online.
