Along with Maurice Sendak and Shaun Tan, Dr Suess is one of my favourite children's author/illustrators, and his book 'The Lorax' would have to be at the top of my list. For this project I was working with Year 3's and 4's to create a Lorax inspired landscape. We read through the story and discussed the characteristics of Dr Suess' illustration style and how to go about drawing things like Truffula trees. The students were then left to work independently on their creations, with the only 'rule' being that the Lorax must appear somewhere in their picture. We love the results and we hope you do too!
