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, 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.

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.
The Truffala Trees!
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!
Ted Danson is great on his own, but unfortunately I found the music distracting.
Only if the audible is also interactive, this is important for the target age group.
Wish picture pages would display as this is a children's book.
Picture pages to follow along with the audio
Yes. It is a short story that is fun and shares a good message.
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 best thing about the book was how you could see in your mind what he was trying to tell you about.
Dr. Seuss is great for children
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.
