    "Dr. Suess is the man, and you can't tell me otherwise. While the Lorax isn't my favorite, its charm cannot be understated."

    "This book was never meant to be "vegan friendly" but just teach a healthy respect for the things around us. It could be used as that I guess, but really lets not get carried away, it is just a kids book,"

    "The Lorax is an old Dr. Seuss book that aims to educate and entertain kids by teaching them to respect and care for their environment. It's full of colorful illustrations, fun, and information that make children love to read it. It's a great way to entertain your kid, and teach them about the environment. Guaranteed your child already heard about Dr. Seuss anyway if they've ever been in school so they'll already be on board."

    "This classic tale by Dr. Seuss was hard to find in my school library as it was popular and always checked out. This was true of Dr. Seuss books in general but this one is special in that it teaches about environmental awareness and conservation. However, I don’t see it as being generally educational about the “great outdoors” as much as it does for the topic of conservation. It is a great book but there may be better selections to learn about the great outdoors with a more general approach. "

    "This book is not just a children's book but so much more! Every family should have this as a staple in their home. It is so relevant to the world today that it is almost inconceivable that it was written in 1971, 46 years ago. The environmental issues alone are a must read for everyone. Get it for a very young child so they can begin to learn responsibility now for the world we live in."

    "The Lorax by Dr. Seuss is one of those mind blowing books of my youth. This book teaches children to care for the environment and why it is so important to do so. I remember being quite moved by this book as a child and it still moves me. Dr. Seuss was definitely ahead of his time when he wrote The Lorax."

    "I wanted to teach my kids about climate change and the environment. Although at a fairly low reading level, The Lorax does a good job teaching about the environment. I would recommend this book for any parents looking to teach their kids about climate change and the environment."

    "The Lorax is an all time great Dr. Seuss book. A good book for people of all ages. My kids loved it. It has a great message as well. Very relevant today, many years after it was written. The illustrations are fantastic. This should be a staple in every home."

    "As my son was growing up I really wanted him to start reading books that would help him learn leadership skills. I decided to get him the book The Lorax by Dr. Seuss as I thought this book had a lot of elements that he would connect with. This book had more information related to respect and care for the environment but still touched on elements of leadership."

    "The Lorax is a classic picture book for children from Dr. Seuss. I have this book on my shelf at home as I did when I was a child. I think this book is now more relevant than ever. I give this book as a gift every chance I get. "

    "Avid Dr. Seuss reader and yet I have never heard of this book. I don't understand why it isn't more popular. Maybe in today's hyper security focused environment, parents steer away from books with guns. Maybe people just don't want to advocate for the great kindness and patience which should be shown to guests and more importantly the lesson that even guests might take advantage and shouldn't be allowed too. I do think this is a good book to encourage child to not allow people to just walk all over them. Everyone and everything has its limits. The illustrations are wonderfully drawn and the story line is enthralling"
