    Seventh Grade

    My seventh grade science teacher showed us the original Lorax as part of a unit on being environmentally aware. In retrospect, she was waaaaaaaaaaay ahead of her time; this was the early 90s, and hardly anybody cared about being "green"But that movie sparked something in me.  I...

    Introduced To Me To The Higher Reading Dr.seuss

    Book was great, movie was terrible. I love going back to the book again and again. I first found it in my aunt's house, and until then I never knew that Dr.Seuss ever went beyond "One fish, Two fish." The Lorax is so inspiring to me and the lesson it has at the end is very...

    Reread the Lorax

    I just read The Lorax to my 2nd graders the other day.  It's been a while since I've read it.  It was amazing to look at is as an adult and see really what Dr. Suess was addressing.  Also to watch my students faces and see their empathy for what was happening was...

    A Personal Favorite!

    I first read this story about 3 years ago, to my daughter. By the end, I was like "Wow"! This story rings so true to what we are doing to the earth on a daily basis. It immediately made me more conscious of my actions and is the reason that my daughter and I decided to...
