Good beginner book.

Personal reaction –
I love this book. It reminds me of the movie, The Lorax, and was a super easy read! I can imagine students loving this book, and if they have seen The Lorax, they will recognize certain aspects.

read aloud to make a curricular connection
I would read this aloud to kindergarteners for the purpose of showing rhyming words. Although Dr. Seuss didn't write it, the book still has rhymes and such, which will be beneficial for the students. The repetitiveness within the book will hel

Look for the Lorax is the perfect book for the beginning reader. The size of the book will get the students to feel confident in thru reading abilities. The bright pictures also help to tell the story, and help students picture the story in their minds. I personally love the Lorax, and was so excited to find book that goes along with it. This book is not a Dr. Seuss book, but it accentuates the story that Dr. Seuss told, and helps kids understand the basics of his book and the movie. I really en ...more

This brief look into the world of Dr. Seuss' Lorax, the warrior who speaks for the trees and speaks to us about caring for earth's limited resources, is a fun, if too short, walk into the woods of his domain, and kids who may not have read the classic book or seen the recent film should enjoy this immensely. The Lorax is a little guy with a big heart, and maybe, just maybe, he can show us how much heart he does have.

This is a level 1 reader... I would say more on the l.5 to almost 2 level as most of the book is repeatitive rhyming words but there are some longer sentences with harder words to read. So if your child is reading on their own they may need a little help with some of it.

Very cute (illustrations are colorful) Dr. Seuss book.

A Step into Reading book...this book was very easy for my daughter to read. I liked the rhyme and rhythm of the book. Like another review of the book, I would say it did remind me of one fish, two fish by Dr. Seuss.
I enjoyed the book because I saw a lot of sight words my daughter has become familiar with.

This one reminded me of "One Fish, Two Fish".

In this Step Into Reading: Step One Easy Reader, the familiar story of Dr. Seuss’ Lorax is made beginning reader friendly with simplified a phonetic text and lively illustrations.

I might use this as an early introduction to The Lorax, but it doesn't touch on the environmental message of the original.

There are comparison, reputation and rhymes that children can easily get interested in this book. I did not expect the way to finish the end but there are many original and attractive illustration.

My Kindergartener picked this up at the school book fair. I was happy with this choice as it has numerous sight words and an appropriate level of rigor for her. Plus, we love The Lorax.
