Nothing But Lorax


This year, the National Education Association (NEA) has partnered with Universal Studios and their latest film, The Lorax, which premieres on March 2nd.  Created by the same people who did Despicable Me, this is one movie that the kids and I are really excited about seeing. We're headed to the library in the morning to see if we can find the book.  My kids do love Dr. Seuss, and we have several of his books, but not this one.

Anyway, if your family happens to be Seuss lovers, too, then be sure to check out the Lorax movie's website. There you'll find not only additional footage, but also a whole ton of activities including a daily activity, printables, lesson plans, a story contest, and online games.

And if you follow The Lorax Movie on Facebook, you'll find more great activities. You can even show your support by adding a Lorax (or his moustache!) to your photos. You can also sign up for 60 days of Seuss-isms (except that they're down to the last 11 days!).

And if you just can't get enough of Dr. Seuss, take a moment to check out Seussville.com. This incredibly fun site was created just for children and features many educational games with Dr. Seuss characters.

I haven't found a whole lot of Dr. Seuss in Spanish, yet, but I did find the Spanish version, El Lórax! I'm always careful picky about translations, and I haven't read this one, but I'm encouraged because it is on DelSolBooks.com.

One final thing to share, if you haven't heard of The Lorax Project, and you have a budding scientist at home or in the classroom, you're missing out! I love this site and it's challenge to young people to take action by learning about and helping to save the endangered species and ecosystems on our planet today.

Con mucho cariño...
