Jennifer Connelly's Bookshelf
By Dr. Seuss
I read it to my son Kai all the time. I think it's important for kids to read, and Dr. Seuss's books are great ones to start with. The Lorax is a cautionary tale about a creature who regrets having ruined the environment after inventing the Thneed, "a Fine-Something-That-All-People-Need!" It's about production and consumerism, and to me, it has really good politics for a children's book.
