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.

    "Distracting music"

    Background music is annoying and at odds with the book. Overpowers reader. Also the reader does not have an engaging enough voice.

    "Perfect for a beginning reader!"

    My son likes The Lorax a lot more than I do, and now he can listen to it over and over and over again if he wants. :-) This is a great recording, with background music and sound effects that I think really add to the listening experience.

    Having audio recordings of picture books like this one are really fun now that our little guy is starting to read; he can practice following along while listening, just like when we're reading together. Great value for the price!

    "Has soundtrack for entire reading duration"

    I love the story of the lorax, so my review does not in any way reflect the content of the story, but rather the way in which the story was presented sonically. I really prefer that the story be a rhythmic recording of the literature rather than something with a soundtrack. In this case the soundtrack sounded very cheap and took away from my overall experience of the story.

    Story
    "The Lorax, a Perfect Choice for Early Listeners"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Yuk. Cheesy music"

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

    "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.

    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.
