The Lorax Featured
My daughter has become addicted to Dr. Suess. In December we read How the Grinch Stole Christmas almost every night. Two weeks ago she brought home The Sneetches from her school. This week it is The Lorax.
It is obvious that Theodor Geisel had a keen sense of social awareness. His books, while fanciful and geared towards children, are allegories that address issues we still face today: destructive cynicism (Grinch), prejudice (Sneetches), and greed (Lorax). The moment of insight in each book holds as much truth for adults as children.
In fact, the "lightbulb moment" in The Lorax must be embodied by every voter and candidate in 2012.
UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
nothing is going to get better.
