Dr. Seuss Book
The Lorax by Dr. Seuss has a wonderful message about preserving our environment, but just enjoy the lyrical language!

I can't believe they made a movie out of the book. I hope they don't mess up the simple message of the story. As the world slowly involves more and more technology into its everyday, the message of this story becomes more and more relevant.
I wish more people will hear the message of the story and read it to their children. Maybe the movie will help get the message out to their kids...

Not the version I expected
I was expecting to receive the original release of the Lorax, and was disappointed to find that this was the re-release edition. Great book none the less.
