Earth Day!

The LoraxDr. Seuss wrote The Lorax over 40 years ago and it seems to be a book ahead of its time.  The Lorax is the perfect book to introduce the idea of conservation and what it would be like to live with limited resources.  This is a must read for Earth Day (April 22).  You can round out the experience with Lorax the movie.


Like all Dr. Seuss books The Lorax has fun illustrations, rhyming and silly words.  Your child will not only learn about taking care of the earth, but will also be engaged and entertained.
