Our Earth Day theme this year is Dr Seuss’ The Lorax.Â The LoraxÂ was Dr. Seuss‘ personal favorite of his children’s book.Â It chronicles the plight of the environment and the Lorax, who speaks for the trees against the Once-ler. As in most Dr. Seuss works, most of the creatures mentioned are original to the book.
What costume will you dream up?
The book is commonly recognized as a fableÂ and a story Dr SeussÂ was able to create addressing economic and environmental issues without it being dull. “The Lorax,” he once explained, “came out of me being angry. In The Lorax I was out to attack what I think are evil things and let the chips fall where they might.”
