Reading for Children: “The Lorax”, “The Polar Express”

Reading for Children: “The Lorax”, “The Polar Express”

Reading for children is a family activity that cultivates love for literature, and can be used as one of the early learning methods. On Sunday, November 15 at 2p.m. our volunteer, Anastasia Pavlyuk, will read “The Lorax” by Dr. Seuss and “The Polar Express” by Chris Van Allsburg.

“The Lorax” is a children’s book written by Dr. Seuss and first published in 1971. The book is commonly recognized as a fable concerning the danger corporate greed poses to nature, using the literary element of personification to give life to industry as the Once-ler and the environment as The Lorax.

“The Polar Express” is a 1985 children’s book written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg, a former professor at the Rhode Island School of Design. The book is now widely considered to be a classic Christmas story for young children. It was praised for its detailed illustrations and calm, relaxing storyline. It was adapted as an Oscar-nominated motion-capture film in 2004 starring Tom Hanks and directed by Robert Zemeckis.

Join us on Sunday to listen to these stories and take part in some book-related activities!
