Fluffy creatures and Truffula Trees
The Lorax - Dr. Seuss

If the title, alone, does not intrigue you, then you should still read this book anyway. This book is a cute story about a boy who goes to the land where the lorax lives. During his time there you will read about the ways in which the town changes due to the chopping of truffula trees. It is written on a Lexile Reading scale level of 560 L. It is meant for an audience of kindergarten to second graders. This is a book I would read with students during Dr. Seuss week. After reading the book I would tell students to pick an activity based on their Tic Tac Toe Board of Activities for this book. Students would then either write or draw different topics from the book. It is a very cute book and I highly recommend it.

The Lorax!
The Lorax - Dr. Seuss

Dr. Seuss is always a good read! This book is a great example of seeing things from a different perspective. The Lorax is trying to look out for the animals and trees and protect them, while the Once-ler sees how the business is growing and how many people want their products that they are creating using the trees. I think this story would be a great way to show that their are different perspectives and they both could be right in their own ways. For older students they could look at the different perspectives of the characters and create a list of ways that each are correct or incorrect.

The Lorax
The Lorax - Dr. Seuss

This is my ALL-TIME-FAVORITE Dr. Seuss book! It's definitely in my top-5-favorite of ALL TIE! This is a story about the Lorax, about tree, about nature, and about caring for the world around us. It teaches children many valuable lessons. I would put it at a Level M in the Fountas & Pinnell scale because it is pretty difficult language for young kids to read and comprehend by themselves.

As an activity, I would have students choose their favorite quotes from the book and decode the or explain them. I observed this being done when I was observing in a 5th grade classroom and the kids loved it! Then they got to watch the movie to enhance understanding and they loved it. I was in 9th grade the first time I saw the movie and I thought it was hilarious, so it's really great for all ages.

This is a nice, easy-to-read book. Set in pre-Once-ler times, the book goes through the Lorax's world with simple rhymes and descriptions. The reader is exposed to the various animals that live around the truffula trees and learn about opposites at the same time.

Growing up, The Lorax was my all-time favorite book (and to be honest, it's probably still my favorite children's book as an adult). While the kids I work with enjoy the colorful illustrations of the original, the text is a bit long for them. So finding this book in the Little Free Lending Library was perfect. This is a great book to introduce young readers to the Lorax.
