Children's Literature

I am currently in college to be an elementary teacher. These are some books that I read as a child that I really enjoyed and ones I plan to use in my future classroom.

The Lorax

The Lorax - Dr. Seuss

Grade Level: Pre-K-K, 1-2, 3-5

Lexile Level: 560L

The Lorax is about a mythical creature who protects the trees and animals from a stranger when he moves into their area and starts cutting down the trees. When a young boy is told the story of the lorax, he sets out to protect the land the way the lorax did and is able to turn everything around. I would use this book for arbor day. I would use this book to explain to my students how important it is that we take care of nature and all elements in it.
