“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not,” proclaims The Lorax in this cautionary tale of greed and environmental destruction. The story recounts how the Lorax tries to save the Truffula Forest and its inhabitants from disaster at the hands of an insatiable factory owner. The Lorax’s pleas are ignored and tragedy follows. A Dr. Seuss classic, it also serves as an ecological warning that still rings true today.

New features only available in this digital book include professional narration, background audio and enlarged artwork for each scene.  To promote reading in young children, individual words are highlighted as the story is read and words zoom up when pictures are touched.  By combining the original text and artwork of Dr. Seuss with features that entertain and promote reading, this omBook appeals to readers of all ages.

Recommended Ages: 3 - 6

    The Lorax is a book that everyone needs. But, like all the ocean house books, when I lock my phone while in the book it goes back to the beginning. You also cannot skip to any location in the book.

    Tap on the pictures, and words like "grickle grass" pop out at you. Voices are excellent (but are voiced with American voice talent). You can turn narration off, and set the book to auto-run so you can be a bad parent and leave your darling son or daughte
