When I think about the books that I read to my children,
|Not sure which ones these are?
Top Row: Butter Battle Book, The Sneetches, The Cat in the Hat, The Lorax
Bottom Row: Yertle the Turtle, The Grinch, Green Eggs & Ham, Horton Hears a Who
When I started looking for the Dr. Seuss quotes, I stumbled onto the fact that Universal Studios was putting out The Lorax in theaters in March. Initially, I added the video of The Lorax movie trailer. But a few hours after I uploaded this blog piece, my friend Bettina wrote to tell me that there’s an even BIGGER story here! It seems my kids weren’t the only one influenced by Dr. Seuss.
The Lorax movie, with its millions of dollars in advertising and massive audience has the potential to help heal the Earth. This movie can show the world we should not take our sky, water, trees, and animals for granted. It could inspire more and more people to treat Earth with the same respect you would give a child.We’d like to see the movie live up to the potential of the book. We’re encouraging Universal to make an improved Lorax movie website that Dr. Seuss would be proud of.

Here’s the Movie Trailer. And it’s being released on Dr. Seuss’s Birthday!!! Do you have that book, Happy Birthday to You – it’s a traditional birthday reading here. Still.
