This timeless Dr. Seuss classic was first published in 1960, and has been delighting readers ever since. Sam-I-am is as persistent as a telemarketer, changing as many variables as possible in the hopes of convincing the nameless skeptic that green eggs and ham are a delicacy to be savored. He tries every manner of presentation with this "nouveau cuisine"--in a house, with a mouse, in a box, with a fox, with a goat, on a boat--to no avail. Then finally, finally the doubter caves under the tremendous pressure exerted by the tireless Sam-I-am. And guess what? Well, you probably know what happens, but even after reading Green Eggs and Ham the thousandth time, the climactic realization that green eggs and ham are "so good, so good, you see" is still a rush. As usual, kids will love Dr. Seuss's wacky rhymes and whimsical illustrations--and this time, they might even be so moved as to finally take a taste of their broccoli. (Ages 4 to 8)

When we have free time in the classroom, there is a mad dash to the bookshelf to fetch "Green Eggs and Ham." I sit out of sight while the children quietly sit down with "Green Eggs and Ham" and watch them turn the pages and "read" the story. They know what lines belong to which page by "reading" the pictures. This is one of the earliest and most positive signs of reading readiness. Of course the children aren't "reading" the words, but they are becoming aware of letters as symbols for sounds. I often hear them mimicking my many interpretations of the book (some of which get quite enthusiastic!) and other children gather round the "reader" to hear the story, sometimes helping out! The benefits they are reaping from this story alone marks the beginning of an enjoyable journey through the many facets of language development (reading, comprehension, phonics, rhyming, speaking, listening, and interpretation.)
Not only is the book full of fun phrases, fantasic illustrations, lively characters and poignant messages, but also is a great tool for learning about the initial processes of reading and recognizing written language. In later years, "Green Eggs and Ham" and other books as endearing (whether the children will realize it or not) may lead to a love of books and reading which may help them succeed in school.
I have no doubt that my students will forget who "Ms. Molly" is in their teenage years and beyond, but they will ALWAYS hold in their hea! rts a special memory that is "Green Eggs and Ham."
My only complaint is that the book comes with a sheet of stickers, some of which are meant to be added to the last page. I wish that the last page just had the illustrations and that the stickers were just extra or not included at all. While we placed the stickers in their intended place, some of them have since been torn out so now the flaps are just empty.
But, that is a small complaint that shouldn't stop you from buying this great book.
They are fun to read, fun to hear and they really bring out a lot of imagination! Kids love reading and listening to these silly "tongue-twisting" books! I'm not alone in my high recommendation!
Green Eggs & Ham I'd simply delightful :) This book came as a specific request from my 5 yr old girl, who has been awaiting it's arrival anxiously.... a whole 2 days is like a year to kids lol and today it came... we opened it and read it immediately... four times lol
These books make kids WANT to read! & thst, in my opinion, is the best part!
This book was delivered through prime and cost was low. Thumbs up all around, and a must-have for any kids bookcase :)
Ps... 2 pics posted... 2nd is blurry, but the book is not lol just a bad shot
one of his lesser known books, it is one that has always given me courage to go on in the face of the worst moments. if akin to any other of his books, it would be that penultimate masterpiece "oh the places you'll go", but truthfully i prefer "solla sollew".
a great book for kids and grownups.
This one is very repetitive which to a certain extent all Dr. Seuss books are, but green eggs and ham is more so in my opinion. My daughter lost interest in this pretty quickly.
