Author Tish Rabe channels Dr. Seuss in an attempt to teach kids about the protecting our environment by going green. The Step Into Reading early reader makes its point in a charming, nonthreatening way. Children can become overwhelmed or anxious when learning about environmental issues, but this book presents both problems and practical kid-friendly solutions in an optimistic way.

In addition to the informative rhymes, the illustrations are quite Suessical, too!

I wanted to read an Earth-day themed title to my kids, and Warren seemed to enjoy the original Lorax tale. This has some helpful tips for saving energy and recycling. My kids can't help as much with that yet, but they enjoyed the visuals nonetheless.

I thought this was a really good book. It teaches about keeping the earth clean. It helps teach about recycling and pollution. I also enjoyed the pictures, they went along with the book great.

L.E. I would take a bunch of recyclables and have the children sort the. We could also graph which items go where.
Children's Literature Project
Step Into Reading Level 3. Recommended for grades K-3.

The Lorax explains practical, kid-friendly ways to help the Earth. Topics such as recycling, conservation, and reusing are discussed. It is written in Dr. Seuss style rhyming and is easy for kids to understand the concepts.

This book is great for 3rd grade and for Earth day or going green discussions.

This book is about what kids can do to help the earth and slow down the effects of global warming. It is written in poems from the point of view of the Lorax. This book gives simple solutions for kids to help save the world.

Considering this is not by Dr Seuss and it has a very explicit social message, the rhymes are great! It could use different suggestions, though.

Parts of this story "rhymes like Seuss" and most of it doesn't. It's kind of a long story.

Recommends it for: 1st-3rd grade
Sounds Seussish, but missing the humor of Seuss.

This book is about saving the planet.
