The Lorax by Dr. Seuss
First published in 1971, this eco-minded classic by Dr. Seuss is still a great read for Earth Day. When the greedy Once-ler cuts down the lovely Truffula Trees for the sake of manufacturing, the fuzzy yellow Lorax speaks up "for the trees have no tongues." The story reminds us all that Earth's beauty could be fleeting without our help.
