This book would be appropriate for second and third graders because the reading is not too long and has lots of pictures. The story is about a Once-ler who constantly cuts down and uses the Truffula Trees until there is none left. All the creatures that live in the forest end up having to move and the Once-ler is left with notrhing. At the end the Once-ler realizes that he can change the forest if he tells a boy to plant a Truffula Tree seed and take care of the forest. The book is filled with rhymes and is perfect for beginning readers to pronounce unknown words (phonemic awareness). - I would ask children to make a text to world connection with this book.-I would ask children to make a text to self connection with this book.-After hopefully discussing about the environment and how we may sometimes harm it I would have children come up with ideas on what we can do to make the situation better.
My favorite Dr. Seuss book ever!!!! What an important and relevant issue tackled with Seuss's usual creativity and playfulness!
The truffula trees, which were once thriving, have all but disappeared due to the greediness of the Onceler, who refused to listen to the warnings of the Lorax. It is now up to a child to spread the word about conservation.This is a great way to begin a unit about the environment and conservation.
I really liked the Lorax. It was very sad because the Onceler cut down all of the forest and the animals had to leave. It teaches a lesson about saving mother nature and preserving our natural surroundings. This book is perfect for anyone that is learning to read because the language is simple and the story helps the reader to gain morals and value for other things in nature.
