Celebrate Earth Day with the Lorax!
This year is the 50th anniversary of the global celebration of Earth Day, and there is no better way to mark the occasion than with Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax! Through this book and others, Dr. Seuss challenges young readers to be knowledgeable, curious, and thoughtful about the world around them. As new generations begin to learn about environmental protection, the Lorax’s message gets even more relevant: “UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
Below are many ideas and activities to teach your children about how they can protect the Earth—with the Lorax as their guide!
