The story is actually quite moving too and was perfect for me to introduce some lessons to my children. “The Lorax” is a tale of a young man, the Once-ler, who goes off on his in search for the perfect material to make his Thneed (a crazy sweater.) He meets the Lorax when he cuts down a tree and the Lorax explains how he speaks for the trees and takes care of the animals. The story goes on of course as he cuts down more trees until there is none left. As a side story there is a town in the future where there are no trees but one girl (Taylor Swift) wants one. They actually sell bottled air since the air and pollution is so bad!
So anyways a young boy (Zac Efron) goes on a mission and hears the story from the Once-ler. Can he grow a tree and save the town?
The story is great to teach kids about caring about the environment, recycling, and how one person can make a difference!
This is a must-see movie in my book, even if you don’t have kids! Truly amazing animation, hilarious songs and dancing and a great overall story.
