the Lorax

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss. He would have been 105 today.

“The tale of the Lorax was Seuss’ environmental fable published in 1971. In it, he speaks out against the destruction of the environment through the Lorax, a sage figure who speaks for the trees, only to watch his habitat destroyed by an unsustainable business. After the plants are killed and the animals leave the barren wasteland behind, the polluting Once-ler realizes the terrible mistake he’s made, and urges a young boy to plant the last-ever Truffula seed to restore the beauty of the land.
