I am doing a picture book challenge in 2017, so here's our first review.

*The Lorax* by Dr Seuss is one of my daughter's favourite books so I have read it many dozen times and some of the phrases have entered our conversation. 'Would you like to play under the trees in your barbaloot suits?'

Here is a review by my six year old:

I don't know why I like it, I just do.

Maybe it is because the Lorax speaks for nature.

And I like imagining what happens to the trees at the end because it does not tell you.

And here is an additional comment from me, as a forty five year old:

Does the Onceler actually repent? He spends the time after the Lorax leaves allegedly pondering the meaning of the phrase 'Unless'. But he also canonically spends his time lurking and making himself a gruvulous glove (sounds like a thneed to me!) and demanding money in return for information. He doesn't spend any time trying to fix the mess he got into, but handballs it to others. Repented? Not sure.
