So you may have heard … Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax premieres today.
I’m looking forward to seeing it — not just to see the well-loved book in action on the screen, but to see what type of message it will offer about conservation.
We are a family of hikers and love nothing more than finding new trails and discovering new parks to explore. While we’re not able to get to the movie today, thanks to school and book learnin’ and stuff, we plan to take it in this weekend.
But we also have a favorite post-movie activity planned.
Because one of our favorite theaters is near one of our favorite trails, we’re planning on a nice hike afterward. I have a feeling that after watching a movie about preserving nature, we’ll be ready to go out and see some.
Fine. We’re crunchy nerds. I know.
Still, I was excited to see The Lorax movie team up with the United States Forest Service with the Discover the Forest The Lorax “Speaks for the Trees” program. It’s exciting to think that kids who might find a message in the book or the movie will have a way to get involved and learn more about conservation and protecting nature.
Check it out, if you see the movie and want a way to keep chatting about it.
