In the book the lorax it tells a story about how to take care of the planet. Without trees it would be extremely hard for wildlife and people to live. I demonstrates that due to people's actions and greed can lead to consequences. We must take care of the planet and the world that is given to us. ( )

Way longer than I remember and not as fun to keep up with without pictures. Though this is still a good lesson about caring for the earth.

For Audrey, Lark and Lea With Love
First words
At the far end of town where the Grickle-grass grows and the wind smells slow-and-sour when it blows and no birds ever sing excepting old crows... is the Street of the Lifted Lorax.
I am the Lorax, I speak for the trees. I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues ....

Book description
This is a story about deforestation and the conservation of land.  It is a perfect book to introduce environmental topics in the classroom.  The colorful illustrations are fantastic and sure are an attention getter.  I would suggest 2nd grade as an appropriate time to introduce this book.
