Dr. Seuss is one of my favorite authors. I know, I know. Of all the authors, this English teacher’s favorite is Theodore Seuss Geisel, an American artist and children’s author known for greats like Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, and (of course) How the Grinch Stole Christmas. His texts are not merely filled with imaginative characters and silly rhymes, but instead are allegories that explore highly political and social issues. His subversive works challenge readers to think critically about racial and religious equality, materialism, and environmentalism and, in some ways, even empowers readers to affect change. The 1971 classic, The Lorax, is one of those stories that does just that!
