While young kids might enjoy watching The Lorax for the cute characters and colorful scenery, older kids and adults will hopefully take something more away from it. I don’t want to get into heavy environmental and even political issues here… I would much rather craft! There is just one quote from the story that I think sums it all up — “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
