    "A classic, but..."

    What is up with the music? It was distracting and didn't fit. Otherwise, we love this story!

    "A Dr. Suess for all times - especially these times"

    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.

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

    Yes, I love Dr. Seuss.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lorax


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Ted Danson did a nice job reading this story.


    Do you think The Lorax needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    no. It stands alone on its own merit


    Any additional comments?

    Music in places was a bit annoying, but otherwise a good read. It was a good story for the price.

    "Yuk. Cheesy music"

    The cheesy music in the background is so distracting. Dr. Seuss' writing needs no embellishment. Ted Danson was fine as reader

    "Quite bad"

    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.

    "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.

    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
