The Lorax is by far one of my favorite Dr. Suess books. I probably enjoy it more as an adult because I feel strongly about conserving the environment we all live in. However, I also enjoyed it as a child. Dr Suess knows how to engage a childs mind into a story. Both with the simple rhyming words and the colorful pictures, every page of this story was one that I could never put down when I read it. Telling a story of a young boy who is in search of the man who destroyed the life of real trees this story touches a lot on an underlying lesson of nature. From what I have been told, Dr Suess was inspire dby this story when he was on a trip to a tropical jungle and saw how bad the environment was being treated. He then decided to put this message in his book to help tell children in a colorful and light way that trees and nature all need to be preserved or they can become extinct. This story is so cute and enjoyable and I have always enjoyed reading it. Probably for children in elementary school around second and third grade, I dont see any reason why a child would not enjoy reading this book. Learning about the Lorax, the keeper of the trees, will attract the attention of all readers.
