This past week I had my 5 year old niece and nine year old nephew over for the day to play with my kids. It ended up getting pretty warm outside and the kids were all forced inside to cool off for awhile. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to have a little movie party and watch Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. We are all huge Dr. Seuss fans and we have all been looking forward to seeing The Lorax since we missed seeing it in theaters.
I made some ice-cold lemonade to cool everyone off and of course some popcorn and M & M’s (our family favorite movie treat). The kids all sat down and enjoyed the movie. They all laughed through the great humor and we all found ourselves signing along with all of the great music (personally, I love a movie with a lot of fun music). I think the beautiful graphics such as the very colorful fluffy Truffula Trees kept even my 3 year old interested through the entire movie.
The Lorax is not only greatly entertaining, but also sends a great message about taking care of our environment. One of my favorite parts was when they were talking about how “people will buy anything if you put it in a plastic bottle”. Doesn’t that seem so sadly true these days?
