What the Lorax? I really had no idea. One of my favorite musicians Michael Frante sings "I'm the Lorax, I speak for the trees" in his song "To the East, to the West." I knew Dr. Seuss had a book titled The Lorax, so we went to the library to check it out. However, it was already out. Weeks later we returned to find it on the shelf. This story is amazing, such an important message to teach our children. I don't know why it took this tree hugging girl 35 years to find this wonderful book. Check it out for yourself.
