What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

The star of The Lorax by Dr. Seuss makes his Step into Reading debut in this rhymed Step 3 reader that offers kids easy suggestions for going green, a perfect real aloud for Earth Day! After explaining how the trash in a wastbasket ultimately ends up in a landfill or incinerator, the Lorax suggests realistic ways children can reduce waste, such as by carrying a lunch box, donating old clothes and toys, sharing magazines with friends, recycling cans and bottles, and using rechargeable batteries. He also explains how they can save energy around the home by turning off lights, taking shorter showers, donning sweaters to stay warm, and much, much more. All in all, this is a great introduction to helping the Earth and helping kids step into reading! Step 3 Readers feature engaging characters in easy-to-follow plots about popular topics–for children who are ready to read on their own.
