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.

The Lorax - Dr. Seuss

He speaks for the trees! I love this vibrant work by Dr. Seuss. I think most of the charm of this book comes from the usage of made-up words. Seuss's made up characters make children giggle and use their imagination! I could use this book for all kinds of activities! I would love to read this on Earth Day. I think it would be great for students to research pollution and its effects on the environment after reading this text. Another great activity for young readers to try is a cause and effect study like the one I found here:
