Dr. Seuss has an amazing gift for creating simple stories for children that deal with complex subjects—such as The Lorax. This insightful book is set in the barren future, where the unseen Once-ler recounts how the problems of today are caused by cutting down all the beautiful Truffula Trees despite the warning of the Lorax. This wonderful story encourages readers to care for the environment, while providing hope that the world can be changed if enough of us care enough to make a positive difference.
