“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not, ” proclaims The Lorax in this cautionary tale of greed and environmental destruction. The story recounts how the Lorax tries to save the Truffula Forest and its inhabitants from disaster at the hands of an insatiable factory owner. The Lorax’s pleas are ignored and tragedy follows. A Dr. Seuss classic, it also serves as an ecological warning that still rings true today.

New features only available in this omBook include professional narration, background audio and enlarged artwork for each scene.  To promote reading in young children, individual words are highlighted as the story is read and words zoom up when pictures are touched.  By combining the original text and artwork of Dr. Seuss with features that entertain and promote reading, this omBook appeals to readers of all ages.

@bedtime story

I'm not sure which Dr. Suess you read as a child, but most of them have meaning and life-lessons. Your use of the word "agenda" suggests that you disagree with the simple, thoughtful, message here, which is a pity. This book was written at a time when we did absolutely nothing to reforest and we used natural resources with abandon. Its story has great meaning in the modern age. I'm sorry to hear that your daughter will be raised in a home where ignorance is preferred over learning. Good luck with that.

5/5 stars
