The Lorax is perfectly suitable book for any child. Past comments prove to be unintelligent, and border on fear mongering. The Lorax shows the repercussions greed can cause out of ignorance for the physical world. The book does have extreme situations, but this is a children’s book, so you have to give the book a break for ending so soon without more detail put into the storyline. My parents are Right-Winged, but still they let me read this book when I was young, showing the open-mind a parent should have when guiding a child’s upbringing. Don’t keep you child in a closet by giving reading them material that fits your own political agenda; rather let them enjoy all sorts of literature as a child. When they grow up they can make their own decisions rationally.

I’m in full agreement with SirSchmoopy. In fact it’s almost everything I had intended to post. I would like to add that Seuss invents biggered because bigger is an adverb. He need a verb in present (biggering) and past tense. If you read it to your kids as “I bigger my factory” you are teaching them incorrectly. At least Seuss’ invention was grammatically correct.
