    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...

    Seventh Grade

    Movie

    What a great story. And it surely applies to the earth today. Maybe we should all take one look at the lorax and think about what we've been doing to the earth. (Me included!) Anyway, the movie is great too. My environmental teacher used to show it to us almost every week. :)

    <3 The Lorax Quote <3

    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...
