My oldest son went to see The Lorax on Wednesday. He hasn’t stopped talking about it (unless he’s wearing his gum boots and pretending he’s Puss n’ Boots). He even used the ticket stub to spell out The Lorax on his easel.This movie really speaks to the kids about the environment in a way that they understand. Sometimes the message is simple. On Earth Day 2008, Conservation International, Dr. Suess’s Enterprises and Random House created the Lorax Project. This link is to what kids can do to help the Lorax .http://www.seussville.com/loraxproject/. One of the ideas is to get your parents to bring reusable bags when grocery shopping. How wise!
I’m planning on going to The Lorax myself. I might even bring my kids and a nephew or two or three. The future of the environment is up to you and me.
“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.”
