Movie Review: The Lorax

The Lorax


My Rating ***** (5 out of 5 stars)

Earth Day is coming up on April 22!  I love Earth Day, and I think The Lorax is the perfect movie to celebrate Earth Day.  The Lorax focuses on the importance of respecting and protecting the environment…a message I think is so important and something we all need to be reminded of every once in a while.  The Lorax is one of my all-time favorite movies, and I love that it is a movie the whole family can watch together.  For the past few years, we have watched it every year on Earth Day…it has become a tradition the whole family looks forward to!


Ted is a 12-year-old boy who lives in Thneedville, a walled city where everything is artificial.  Ted is seeking the one thing that will win him the affection of Audrey, the girl of his dreams who wishes to see a real tree. To find it, he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world.  Find a more detailed summary here.
