    "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."

    "This book is an inspiration to what children are capable of achieving when adults make empty promises of assistance. All these children want is a playground and, together, they are able to rally an entire neighborhood to get a playground built. A great, inspiring book demonstrating what determination, at any age, can achieve, despite incredible obstacles."

    "In the current wave of "girls can do anything" this book is not so much radical as it shows that girls can do things other than wear pretty ball gowns and be princesses. But it is not a best radical book for kids as boys will not likely be as fond of it as girls. "
