I always recoomend Dr Seuss books for young readers. The rhythmic, repetition of rhyme and sounds help students appreciate the sound of written language. The imaginative and poignant stories also help children fall in love with books. The Lorax, in particular, gives an important message for families to talk about. In this age of global climate change and environmental awareness, this book will captivate children and give adults a way to talk about issues that kids are aware of in a way that childen can access.
I read this since it was once in a list of banned books. I wanted to see what in the world Dr. Seuss could write that would cause a state to ban the work. He was surely ahead of his time as this book preaches about the wastefulness of mankind. Fun and thoughtful read.
Found this to be very poorly produced. Constant musical theme seemingly louder than the narration. found it to be very distracting from the story. Story not as good as most for the audio format.
A bookworm since a child. Love audible books.
Yes, I love Dr. Seuss.
Ted Danson did a nice job reading this story.
no. It stands alone on its own merit
Music in places was a bit annoying, but otherwise a good read. It was a good story for the price.
I love urban fantasy, paranormal romance, YA, and dystopian. My favorite authors are Ilona Andrews and Kim Harrison.
A wonderful environmental children's story. My daughter loved it!
I would recommend this audiobook because its fit for children to listen to. The dramatic renditions of the character's story lines, the musical score, not to mention the writing techniques of Dr. Seuss that everyone knows, makes it one that children should enjoy well into their adulthood.
I believe the narrator's renditions of the characters voices really brought the story to life, but what I like most about it was the musical scoring in the background. I think it really gave the story a feeling that the author was trying to achieve.
My favorite scene was the ending, when it appears that all hope is lost for the forest and animals that had inhabited it, the boss gives a seed to a boy and the possibility that the forest will flourish once more.
While the ending excited me, every time the Lorax would reprimand the boss of the factory for destroying another part of the forest, it made me mad to hear the boss totally ignoring all that the Lorax was saying and what was really happening.
The overall story, from beginning to end, is perfect for a relaxing and entertaining listen. I believe it'll be one that children will cherish and keep in their collection of audiobooks.
The cheesy music in the background is so distracting. Dr. Seuss' writing needs no embellishment. Ted Danson was fine as reader
I, personally, would not have chosen Ted Danson to narrate The Lorax. I'm sorry, Ted Danson, for not giving you enough credit.
Danson does a masterful job representing the different voices and keeping it light and charming.
I think kids will love it. I know I did.
