    "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.

    "Good story but audible isn't for me"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I didn't like how you could not read along. I always like to show my grils the words while reading to them as do they like to do that when they read to me.


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

    that was fine, a bit slow for me but my little ones (4 and2) did't seem to mind.


    What didn’t you like about Ted Danson’s performance?

    you could understand everything he was saying.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment, it wasn't what i thought it was going to be


    Any additional comments?

    i want to see audible books that you can still read and turn the page and ones for kids that highlights the word that way they can put two and two together,

    "It's Dr. Seuss. Need I say more?!"

    I love Dr. Seuss and Ted Danson does a fantastic job of reading this book. Plus, the Lorax is a great original story of being green, a classic. It's an inventive way to teach children and adults alike the importance of putting the environment before making money.

    I love urban fantasy, paranormal romance, YA, and dystopian. My favorite authors are Ilona Andrews and Kim Harrison.

    I am a proud Mexican woman that loves words and reading/listening to books. I also believe that only through knowledge can we achieve progress.

    "Classic"

    The Lorax is a classic book that my son loves to read over and over. All our children should be as environmentally concious. It always suprises me that there are people who have never read The Lorax and it is wonderful that it is available on audible.
