The Lorax is back! This time, Dr. Seuss's iconic character "speaks for the seas." The wise Lorax shares facts about the wondrous variety of life that exists under the ocean and points out the harm done by careless pollution. Readers are encouraged to create their own "Clean-It-Up Plan" by recycling and reducing their dependence on plastics. Author Todd Tarpley's cheerful rhymed text is accompanied by brightly-colored illustrations from illustrator Patrick Spaziante. A wonderful read for Earth Day or any day!
