The Lovereading4Kids comment
The Lorax is an hilarious story with typical zany humour and silly rhymes and repetition, that packs a punch with its ecological message without feeling heavy-handed or worthy. It is a powerful message that rings true today which both adults and children would do well to heed. As Dr. Seuss once said, do not to fool with Mother Nature.

The Lorax by Dr. Seuss
Mister! He said with a sawdusty sneeze, I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees. The now remorseful Once-ler, the faceless, bodiless narrator, tells the story himself. Long ago this enterprising villain chances upon a place filled with wondrous Truffula Trees, Swomee-Swans, Brown Bar-ba- loots, and Humming-Fishes.
Bewitched by the beauty of the Truffula Tree tufts, he greedily chops them down to produce and mass-market Thneeds. ("It's a shirt. It's a sock. It's a glove. It's a hat.") As the trees swiftly disappear and the denizens leave for greener pastures, the fuzzy yellow Lorax repeatedly warns the Once-ler, but his words of wisdom are for nothing.
Finally, the Lorax extricates himself from the scorched earth leaving only a rock engraved "UNLESS." But as you might expect from Seuss, all hope is not lost for the Once-ler has saved a single Truffula Tree seed!
