Watch this video, read the book, and–I beg from my knees–
Do everything you can to clean up the earth, PLEASE!
Dr. Seuss’s, The Lorax has long been a popular environmental children’s book. In his magical display of rhyming and timing Dr. Seuss shines a light on the effects “progress” has on the environment. The movie of course is not as good as the book–but it’s fun to hear the Lorax speak, watch the Onceler’s empire grow , and hear songs created just for this animated special.
My favorite quote in the movie (which is not in the book) is:
“I speak for the trees and I’ll yell and I’ll shout for the fine things on earth that are on their way out!”-The Lorax
Watch the video with your kid(s) after the break. And pick up the book–it’s even better!
