The Lorax
The Lorax | Dr. Seuss
120 posts | 257 read | 11 to read
Long before "going green" was mainstream, Dr. Seuss's Lorax spoke for the trees and warned of the dangers of disrespecting the environment. In this cautionary rhyming tale, we learn of the Once-ler, who came across a valley of Truffula Trees and Brown Bar-ba-loots ("frisking about in their Bar-ba-loot suits as they played in the shade and ate Truffula Fruits"), and how his harvesting of the tufted trees changed the landscape forever. With the release of the blockbuster film version, the Lorax and his classic tale have educated a new generation of young readers not only about the importance of seeing the beauty in the world around us, but also about our responsibility to protect it.

I knew I had to reread this one for the #BBRC #PictureBook challenge! Banned for putting the logging industry in a bad light, this book emotionally tells the tale of greed and lack of conservation and the devastation that follows.

Incidentally, this library copy was printed on recycled paper!

This remains one of my favorite children‘s books no matter how often I reread it. From its publication in 1971 to today it has stayed relevant, joyful and energizing. It makes me so sad that this book has ever been banned, most notably in ‘89 for portraying the logging industry in a bad light, but it still has detractors today who say it sends messages against capitalism. #BBRCPictureBookLetterL @LibrarianRyan

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I can‘t help it, there has always been an environmental spirit in my soul. Even as a teen I had a bleeding heart for the earth. Three grown kids, our nightly routine included reading and this was one of our favourites and as a parent, one I also enjoyed reading. Sometimes when I‘m in the forest running I think of this great kids story.

In the book The Lorax, Dr. Seuss discusses the terrible consequences humans may face if we fail to look after our environment. A greedy creature named the Once-ler only cares about making money and ignores the warnings of The Lorax, the keeper of the Truffula Trees. The book is set in a Dr. Seuss make-believe land, in a colorful forest with pink, purple, and yellow Truffula Trees.

olivia_danko The Once-ler begins producing thneeds and begins by chopping a small number of trees down. Throughout the book, The Lorax speaks on behalf of the trees and warns the Once-ler that his activities will cause serious harm.
This modern fantasy book would be best taught using UDL 3.3 (Guide information processing and visualization) I would relate how “The Lorax“ is similar to what's happening in our world with deforestation.

olivia_danko The ELS strategy I'd use is EL 12 (Teach to two objectives, language, and content) The objective of this story is all about we need to take care of the environment around us.
With the following lesson:

#ThankfulThursday

* Lorax by Dr. Seuss is green themed book :)
* Actually at age 21 I changed my name by my choosing, because I really didn't like the one my parents gave me :> They were warned about it and were OK with it :)
* I am grateful that all my family is safe and that I was off work for half of this week :)

The Lorax is a classic work of MF by Dr. Seuss. In this Green Prize-winning picture book, children are introduced to concepts such as corporate greed, environmental conservation, and that its never too late to do the right thing. Despite the seriousness of its theme, The Lorax is still whimsical and engaging for young readers. Check out these lesson ideas:
https://lemonlimeadventures.com/the-lorax-activities-lessons/
#ucflae3414su20

nquintus With its vivid illustrations and classic Seussian word play, The Lorax would be a fantastic book to use in an SR activity. An SR lesson would give the teacher ample opportunity to use ESOL strategy 6: continually monitor students‘ comprehension. In addition, this would foster collaboration and community (UDL 8.3) and allow the teacher to clarify vocabulary and symbols (UDL 2.1) and support decoding of text (UDL 2.3). 2y
DrSpalding This is sometimes classified as science fiction due to the content. Shared reading would be a good teaching strategy to utilize with students. Excellent universal design alignment here. 2y

This MF book by Dr. Seuss can be used as a great RA and S. The book is about The Lorax who “speaks for trees” and confronts the Once-ler who doesn‘t care about killing the trees. #UCFLAE3414F19

The Lorax should be mandatory first reading material. The lessons about the environment, greed, jealousy, conservation, appreciation are almost unrivaled in children‘s books. The Animated Movie brings the book to life. Proof that truth, like love can be found in any place you choose to look for it(love or truth). Supposedly Dr. Seuss had relationship issues. i don‘t care, it(personal issues) does not change the value of the lessons in his books.

#UCFLAE3414F19 This is Dr. Seuss‘s contribution to environmental activism. Even though it is a fable and the lines are written as poetry, the message warns of the danger to the environment from corporate greed. This cute poetry book written and illustrated by Dr. Seuss is an amazing picture book.

ccipriati This story is about a Lorax who is angry that his beloved Truffula Trees are chopped down to make Thneeds, a type of sweater that can be used in different ways. The greedy Once-ler is the person behind all of the destruction to the ecosystem and he will not stop until everything around him has become polluted. This story has become an environmentalist classic. This could be a great choral reading or even a read aloud for your classroom. 3y
ccipriati The UDL Guideline strategy that I have chosen for this book is 7.2 which is to optimize relevance, value, and authenticity. You can relate this book to our Earth today and find the similarities between the story and todays‘ ecosystem. 3y
ccipriati The ESOL Strategy that I picked for this book is #14 which is to simplify your speech by making it slower and redundant. This book has many rhyming words and when reading at a fast pace, the words might be jumbled. And it is important for the students to be able to hear and understand what you are saying. 3y

karlasanabria1 This book is a classic, totally love it! Your link is from a very trustworthy site. Additionally, I agree with your appropriate strategy! 3y
DrSpalding Well said! This is usually considered science fiction because of the environmental nature. Scholastic is a high-quality resource that you should continue using in your future classroom. 3y

I love how this ties in the idea of conservation of the planet with rhymes and an alternate universe to prevent kids from being scared but making it realistic. The characters are so fascinating in all of Dr. Seuss‘s books.

”The Lorax” is a science fiction (SF) classic by Dr. Suess. The story depicts the story of a mythical, tree-protecting creature named the Lorax and his attempts to convince the Once-ler to stop cutting down trees. This would be a great storytelling (S) or readers theater (RT). #LAE3414sp19

wmaxflowers Lesson plan: https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/lorax-dr-seuss...
This lesson plan would align well with UDL principle 7.2 and ESOL 12.
