Join the Lorax—Dr. Seuss’s beloved icon of environmentalism—as he introduces nine insects endangered by humans and empowers kids with simple actions they can take to help protect and save them!

I am the Lorax

and I’ve come here to say

that some bugs need our help

(and they need it TODAY)!

This rhymed early reader narrated by the Lorax explains how insects are vital to life on Earth, and how some of them—including bumblebees, ladybugs, monarch butterflies, and dragonflies—are threatened with extinction. Young children will learn how these common backyard insects help humans to survive (by pollinating our crops, for example), and how humans—including kids—can make simple changes that will help these insect species to survive as well!

Illustrated with bright, cheerful art and full-color photographs, Hug a Bug includes suggestions on growing native plants, reducing energy use to combat climate change, and building a simple bee house. It’s a perfect choice to nurture a love and respect for the natural world—as well as a love of reading!

Series Overview: Featuring beloved characters from Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax, Lorax Project Books are unjacketed hardcover picture books that explore a range of environmental topics. Each book includes an index, glossary, and suggestions for further reading and research, plus simple activities and suggestions to empower young children to help shape the future.
