I have continuously read this book since watching the film bc I believe in its message about saving Mother Earth and the trees I am not a tree hugger but I love my toilet paper and my paperback books

thneads and so on but the kiddoes love it They are the target and I hope they come to understand the I have continuously read this book since watching the film bc I believe in its message about saving

are cut down through Dr Seuss childish world Dr Seuss illustrations as always are extremely creative and inventive especially when we are first introduced to the land of the Truffula trees, the land is colourful and peaceful looking, but when the once ler starts cutting down all the Truffula trees, the land looks dark and bleak, representing the pollution that is caused from cutting down the trees.Parents should know that even though I personally do not see anything wrong with this book, this book was considered extremely controversial due to the fact that many people believed that the book was trying to promote the idea that industrialization is a bad thing Personally, I think that this book was just trying to discuss about the issues of environmentalism and that cutting down too many trees can cause pollution on the earth The Lorax is one of the greatest books about the issues of environmentalism that kids will understand perfectly and will definitely be evolved into one of the greatest cult classics to ever come to the world of children s books I would recommend this book to children ages five and up due to the controversial material about whether or not industrialization is a good or bad thing for the world that small children might not understand Review is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog January 2015A one paragraph review of a children s book I didn t

reaction from obviously mentally unstable individuals Maybe I m just not a Dr Seuss person but I hated this book Boring story, stupid words that didn t entertain and even though it was meant for a child rather than me, my son hardly ever looked at it growing up, so its sits on the shelf still quite pristine Funny thing is that this is only a comment on a kiddies book yet it has engendered so much nastiness from several people all of whom appear to be alteregos of Michael He has made it his business to take people not me alone to task for not enjoying this book even to the extent of making personal remarks He himself enjoys it so much he s made a society IRL not virtually to promote its aims as thought it were a kind of bible Luckily the other reviewers arerational and measured in their response and don t feel the need to make rude personal remarks Each to his own This isn t for me.May 2010I was just looking through my reviews and noticed that Corky and two other characters the same person have deleted their reviews and their IDs Interesting.
