The Lorax  by Dr Seuss
"Unless someone like you...cares a whole awful lot...nothing is going to get better...It's not.
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.
"The big, colorful pictures and the fun images, word plays and rhymes make this an amusing exposition of the ecology crisis."—School Library Journal.  Also in Motion Picture DVD & Animated DVD
