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)
"Limited vocabulary but unlimited exuberance of illustration."--School Library Journal.

Fast forward a couple of years and I realized that while the Kindle version is great to have (especially when on-the-go), nothing really replaces having the actual book in hand for a toddler. My grandson is now almost three years old and can handle the delicate process of turning thin, paper pages. He loves to sit and “read” books to himself or to his baby sister. Because of this new realization, I have decided to pick up the books in this series in hardback format.
“Green Eggs and Ham” is one of the wonderful books I remember from my own childhood and I love the book's rhymes and illustrations. It was one of the Dr. Seuss books that I purchased and read to my children when they were young. We still have those old books but I gave them to my daughters when they moved away from home so they could keep an important piece of their childhood with them. I now get to have the opportunity to buy them again and enjoy reading them to a new generation.
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.
Now that my best friend has two little ones (a 3-year-old and an eight-month-old), I wanted to share this book with her and her children so they could potentially experience the same delight and wonder that I recall. I'm also expecting my first, and will have to order a second copy to have for my own collection!
Oh how I like to review books.
I discuss them after taking looks.
I discuss them before hanging hooks.
I discuss them while hiding in nooks!
What can I say? Dr Suess just brings out the playful joyous side in me. And isn't that the whole point? Dr Suess makes books that are fun to read to kids and that kids can easily start to read themselves! Dr Suess made me love reading as a child and now 30 years later Dr Suess's magic works on my daughter as she won't put these books down.
And since my daughter is a picky eater, Green Eggs and Ham has a particularly relevant message (TRY food before declaring you hate it) that actually worked once to convince my daughter to try something new.
All in all Green Eggs and Ham is a must have for your Dr Suess library. It's one of his all time best!

Beginning readers love this book for it's simple words fun story, and silly (but sneakily educational) simplistic didactic rhythm of the poem, which helps young readers to learn and remember (ask yourself why you still remember the words to this book after so many years!). Additionally, it enforces the lesson to TRY something, even if it looks weird, you may like them! You cannot say you don't like something until you have tried it!
