Lorax (1972)


Share this Movie...

The Lorax is a children’s book, written by Dr. Seuss and first published in 1971. It chronicles the plight of the environment and the Lorax, who speaks for the trees against the greedy Once-ler. As in most of Dr. Seuss works, most of the creatures mentioned are original to the book.

The book is commonly recognized as a fable concerning industrialized society, using the literary element of personification to give life to industry as the Once-ler (whose face is never shown in any of the story’s illustrations or in the television special) and to the environment as the Lorax. It has become a popular metaphor for those concerned about the environment.

    1. I used to adore reading the Lorax to my kids. One of our fatroive all time books. It may be one of the only books I have ever seen my husband read. Now I have to go find that app.

    2. COULD NOT AGREE MORE!!!!! The Lorax is by far my fave Seuss book. When I taught kieerdgartnn, I read it every Earth Day. I can not believe Hollywood is turning it into a love story, of sorts! There are so many different angles they could take to lengthen the movie why THIS one? Oh yeah. Ratings. Sales. The almighty dollar.
