The new ‘Lorax’ movie opens next Friday March 2nd to coincide with the birthday of Dr. Seuss. The “Read Across America” (scheduled for March 2nd) campaign is also trying to tie in with the movie release by encouraging Lorax activities for next Friday. No, we don’t own the original ‘old’ Lorax movie. If people ask for the book, our copy is, of course, checked out. I checked out a picture book biography for my daughter of Wangari called “Trees of Peace” (by Jeanette Winter) about the Nobel Prize winner who died this past September. It’s a good “tree” tie-in to the Lorax book.
