I took my kids to see a movie today for the first time ever! I was a little nervous to take a two and three year old to the movies, but Dr. Seuss' The Lorax was a hit. Now I must admit we had popcorn, treats, and drinks to keep them occupied - but it wasn't even neccessary. They were so captivated by the action, imagery, and storyline - it really ended up being a fun experience. And we didn't even have to take a potty break!
It seems reviews are mixed on this movie. Some critics say it strays to far from the book - but I thought it was a cute movie with a great environmental message to protect nature and understand there are consequences when we don't. What I most enjoyed was The Lorax maintained the lively and coloful visuals we are used to seeing in Dr. Seuss books. I can not get enough of these trees - I just LOVE the color scheme. It makes me want to throw a Lorax themed party or decorate a room! Here's a few ideas I found in case you are inspired to do the same...
