E.B. Mommy’s Report:
We love all things Dr Seuss. So it was no surprise that The Lorax became one of our favorite family entertainers ever since we first watched it on the big screen.
When we learned the Blu-ray and DVD packs were coming out this month, we were thrilled.
This movie is everything people made this out to be and more!
The 4 of us sat glued to the screen (yes Bunny Boo included) from start to finish.
We laughed our sides apart. Tapped our feet and danced to the upbeat music score (Let It Grow remains our #1 favorite!). Absorbed the “take home message”.
And ultimately labelled the movie a must watch family entertainer for ALL ages.
What sets this movie apart…
The fact that the movie does not require for me to stop to explain to Bunny girl how certain behavior was not acceptable or how the language used was not appropriate, gives this my Mommy seal of approval.
And there is an educational angle intertwined as well.
By the end of the movie you’d have decided that you’ll be standing up to speak for the trees too!
Before you hop away, here’s some Lorax fun for the kiddos
Buy it for a bargain…
