Distracting

There is loud music playing over the story. My kids were super distracted and lost interest almost immediately. Bummed because they love this story, but this version is very hard to listen to.

A classic, but...

What is up with the music? It was distracting and didn't fit. Otherwise, we love this story!

Odd Music Choice

Wonderful naration, excellent pace, and well performed voices. But the music choice? Very strange: it does not fit the story well and is far too loud.

A Dr. Suess for all times - especially these times

I always recoomend Dr Seuss books for young readers. The rhythmic, repetition of rhyme and sounds help students appreciate the sound of written language. The imaginative and poignant stories also help children fall in love with books. The Lorax, in particular, gives an important message for families to talk about. In this age of global climate change and environmental awareness, this book will captivate children and give adults a way to talk about issues that kids are aware of in a way that childen can access.

Quite bad

Found this to be very poorly produced. Constant musical theme seemingly louder than the narration. found it to be very distracting from the story. Story not as good as most for the audio format.

Weird music

The music doesn’t fit at all… feels like it should be in a… movie of ill repute. It’s also too loud. In order to hear the words, the volume has to be up so high that the music hurts your ears. Love this book, but this was a disappointing rendition.
