Publisher's Summary

Long before saving the earth became a global concern, Dr. Seuss, speaking through his character the Lorax, warned against mindless progress and the danger it posed to the earth's natural beauty.

    "Well-executed narration"

    The narration was well performed and the under-lying music wasn't distracting. We'll play this at our school for Earth Day.

    "Awesome book made better with Ted Danson"

    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.

    "Best Seuss Book Ever"
    What made the experience of listening to The Lorax the most enjoyable?

    I used it as a teacher for my students and since it is hard on my voice to read it to all five of my classes, I could save my voice using audible.com.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lorax?

    The Truffala Trees!


    Which character – as performed by Ted Danson – was your favorite?

    The Lorax


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    "Ohhhh... the Lorax, brings on the emotion"

    The narration and quality of recording is top notch. Of course the story keeps you on the edge of your seat.

    My 6 year old absolutely loves this book, movie and audio book. He can't get enough. I, at first, did not want to buy a short book with my credit but my son was like, "The Lorax! the Lorax!" so I caved in. Now I am quite happy we got it. And we certainly got our money's worth because we listen to it every night!

    "Terrible music"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Ted Danson is great on his own, but unfortunately I found the music distracting.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Dr. Seuss? Why or why not?

    Yes.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ted Danson?

    Jim Carrey

    "OK"
    Would you try another book from Dr. Seuss and/or Ted Danson?

    Only if the audible is also interactive, this is important for the target age group.


    If you’ve listened to books by Dr. Seuss before, how does this one compare?

    Wish picture pages would display as this is a children's book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Picture pages to follow along with the audio


    Did The Lorax inspire you to do anything?

    no

    "Love Dr. Seuss Books"
    Would you listen to The Lorax again? Why?

    Yes. It is a short story that is fun and shares a good message.


    Have you listened to any of Ted Danson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The music in the background was a little distracting at times. I wish it would have been a little quieter. Overall I really liked the narrator.

    "The book was good."
    What did you like best about The Lorax? What did you like least?

    The best thing about the book was how you could see in your mind what he was trying to tell you about.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Dr. Seuss? Why or why not?

    Dr. Seuss is great for children


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Ted Danson?

    Yes


    Did The Lorax inspire you to do anything?

    We went to see the movie, my 5 yr old grandaughter says the book was so different than the movie. The book was much shorter then the movie was the movie put extra thing in it, and she was pretty disappointed with the book.

    "Ok, but bad background music"

    I want to hear the story not cheesy music in the background. Even if the music was good, that's not what I'm interested in listening to.
