The Lorax Movie, Free App and Book Ideas

Monday, November 7, 2011

Great News: The Lorax has been made into a computer animated film coming to theaters March 2012. With voices from Danny DeVito, Zac Efron and Betty White, I’m curious to see how it will turn out.
Here are some additional ways to explore the story of The Lorax:


We love reading The Lorax book by Dr. Seuss at our house.  I made this felt board for the kids to play with while I read to them. I cut out different colors of felt, glued on googley eyes, put an 8x10 piece of felt in a fun frame for the background and let them play.

I came across the Free App for the Lorax movie this past week.  My 5 year old son has been loving it.  You hold up your Apple device sideways and talk then the mouth and mustache move as you talk. It is pretty silly and makes my son laugh. The movement is pretty jumpy, even after we adjusted the microphone sensitivity, but my son doesn’t care (and hey, it’s FREE!). This is fun to use while reading the book, or just to talk to each other and pretend you’re the Lorax.

This video is only 5 seconds. See how it works. Get The Lorax Free App here.

“I am the Lorax, I Speak for the Trees.”

Check out The Lorax Garden, game app for kids created by Oceanhouse Media. This game is only 99 cents and is another great one to play while you explore the story.

I’ve always loved the original cartoon of The Lorax. You can find it on the Seuss Celebration DVD that has a great compilation of Dr. Seuss cartoons on it.

Do any of you remember what special word the Onceler said was most important? I’ll give you a clue, it starts with an ‘U’.

Leave your comment below and share your ideas of how you like to explore this story.

Thanks for visiting,

I used to adore reading the Lorax to my kids. One of our favorite all time books. It may be one of the only books I have ever seen my husband read. Now I have to go find that app.

I have loved this book for a long time! I wrote a unit study to go with it.

I made some printables for it today, but I'm not quite ready to post those (a few more to make!). :)

UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothings going to get better... it's not. So CATCH, calls the oncler, he lets something fall-

really I could go on. In the seveth grade I memorized the Lorax and I've been able to recite it ever since. Needless to say I loved this post and got the free Lorax app directly after reading! thanks!!! It was so great meeting you today. I really like what you've created here. Hope you get a chance to stop by me and my friend whitneys corner of internet land sometime
