    This is great!

    This is done very well, you will not be upset. I love it, and my twelve year old son thought it was very well done. He sat through the whole book just to see all it would do.

    A classic

    Dr. Suess is arguably one of the best authors for children of all time. The Lorax is in my top ten favorite kids books. This book has an important lesson about conservation as told by the guy who caused the extinction of the truffula trees. It also has a message of hope for the future. It may not be appropriate for very young children. My three year old likes this book as much her Mom.

    Buying the "app" version of this ebook is highly recommended. There are many more features available in this format that enhance our reading experience. It provides an additional reading option in the form of "autoplay". We have a few books in this format and we love it.

    Never read the book as a child, but took a whack at it with the Nook Color, since the movie's come out... wanted to see what the book is like compared to the movie. I must say I'm quite impressed with it, I love how environmentally educational it is, even considering how silly it is! Quite a great story!

    Get the message.

    I have always loved the lorax so I love that they made an auto book. And if you didn't get the message read it again or listen to my review. Unless someome like you cares a whole awful lot. Nothing is going to get better. Its not. This is true so if you are reading this review get up and do something to help and celebrate the world!

    My favorite book of all time

    I like how the text is broken into small pieces so the child does not loose interest before the page needs to be turned

    Sorely disappointed

    I had a LOT of trouble using this one.
    The 'auto play' option wouldn't finish sentences, the 'read to me' option did the same thing. Even the 'read myself' was difficult to use - I couldn't turn a page without it telling me what I was touching on the page. My 5 year old son enjoyed being able to hear what the word was he was touching but it was difficult to simply read through the story, like a book should be!
