Passage from Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax:

Is this a problem or a solution?

He snapped, “I’m the Lorax who speaks for the trees

which you seem to be chopping as fast as you please.

But I’m also in charge of the Brown Bar-ba-loots

who played in the shade in their Bar-ba-loots suits

and happily lived, eating Truffula Fruits.

“Now . . . thanks to your hacking my trees to the ground,

there’s not enough Truffula Fruit to go ’round.

And my poor Bar-ba-loots are all getting the crummies

because they have gas, and no food, in their tummies!

From Six by Seuss: A Treasury of Dr. Seuss Classics (Random House, 1991), p. 319

What we noticed about the writing of the problem and solution in this story:

Bell told the number
