I didn’t know about this book by Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka, Dr. Seuss. An environmental book for young people. Buy from Amazon, send to your politicians.

I stumbled off the track to success in 1968, started chasing shadows that summer. Since then, In addition to farm-laborer and newspaper photographer my occupational incarnations include dishwasher, janitor, retail photo clerk, plumber, HVAC repairman, auto mechanic, CAT scan technologist, computer worker and politico (whatever it takes to buy a camera.)

  1. I just, literally, today, read “the Lorax” in church today. It is an amazing, amazing environmental story. Dr. Seuss was a genius, you may also enjoy the Butter Battle Book (about the nuclear arms race). But, I still find it fascinating after reading it for years to my children. Everytime I read it, I see something different. Thanks for posting this!
