The Lorax is an amazing example of Science Fiction that uses imaginative language and provides a setting that is consistent with the theme. The Lorax is useful in the classroom as a language resource due to the rhyming and predictability of it word choices. It is also very useful to teach about conservationism of your land or planet. The illustrations for this book are bold, colorful, and different from what children experience on their own in nature. This story attempts to educate the reader on the necessity of conservationism, the importance of how we treat nature, and what happens when we misuse nature. The story engages the reader and helps them imagine what the world would look like if we overuse our resources. I wish this book did a better job of explaining the timeline that it takes to recover from an overuse of resources.
