The Lorax by:Dr. Seuss
The Once-ler describes the results of the local pollution problem. "Unless someone like you...cares a whole awful lot...nothing is going to get better...It's not."

"The big, colorful pictures and the fun images, word plays and rhymes make this an amusing exposition of the ecology crisis."
