About the Author

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904. After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising. His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!, appeared in several leading American magazines.
Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever!
In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best- selling series, Beginner Books. This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills.
Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped kids learn to read.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and three Academy Awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 children's books, some of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all ages. Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling author of children's books in the world.

As a child I loved to read Dr. Seuss in english, with its witty and funny rhymes so I was delighted to find a translation in spanish for my daughter to read and further delighted when the translation was so well done that it was as fun and witty as the original version. The story is a perfect example of how resisting to try new things is sometimes downright silly. It is one of our favorites to read at any time during the day!

The translators have done a WONDERFUL job with this book. Obviously Spanish does not have the same rhythm as English so I know they had quite a task before them, but they met the challenge. I'm so glad I'll have one of my favorite childhood books in my husband's native language to share with our future children. I'm sure our kids will have even more fun since my husband's name is Juan Ramón! I've already used it several times in Spanish classes that I've taught--to children and college students. Another challenge met by one of the translators: ¡Oh, cuán lejos llegarás! (Oh, the places you'll go!)

After I had read this book to my nieces and nephews, my nine-year-old nephew picked up "Corre, perro, corre" by P.D. Eastman and read it all the way through in English, including "me gusta," which he had not heard prior to hearing this book. Reading is a great language teacher!
I asked the kids why the main character's name is Juan Ramón instead of Sam, and my nephew said immediately, "Well, it has to rhyme with jamón, of course."
I had purchased this book for my students, but it was obvious I was going to have to get another for my nieces and nephews! At least I have no problem knowing what to get them for birthdays and Christmas gifts! (They certainly don't need any more toys!)

This wonderful version in spanish is as silly, witty and fun as the English original. The translator has done a terriffic job of preserving the spirit and rhyming the words. It is not often the case that the Spanish version of a well-loved children's book reads as if it was originally written in Spansh. Often the language sounds chopped or forced. That is not at all the case with "Huevos verdes con jamón". I wish more books like this one were available. Gracias, gracias Dr. Seuss and Ms. Marcuse.

Many translated classics don't have the original flow of the English title. This one does! I read it to my Spanish classes about once a month and have begun leaving out words - because of the repetition, they are all (ages 3 to 18) grabbing more vocabulary, and laugh as they listen.

The students enjoy reading Huevos verdes in groups and I've even used the sentences to teach grammar rules in different contexts. For the youngest students, we add this to Flip Flop Spanish lessons, and they enjoy "reading" the pages but changing verde to other colors, or the animals. What a great teaching resource that continues to make learning a second language fun!

A wonderful children's book in Spanish. Juan Ramon is persuasive and perserveres in the end by getting the narrator to eat Green Eggs with Ham. The words rhyme very nicely in Spanish. I enjoyed it, every time I read it, and I must have read it to my niece a thousand times!

We had the English version of this book before finding the Spanish one and couldn't imagine the Spanish version could be as much fun as the original. Boy, were we pleasantly surprised! The translations are fantastic -- not a literal translation in all instances but excellently done to preserve Dr. Seuss' great rhyming tradition. Our 18 month old loves to hear us read it and I'm certain the rhythmic verses have a lot to do with it! The illustrations are also colorful, as with most Dr. Seuss books. I hope more Spanish-version Seuss books come out. Highly recommended!

I recently had the privilege of reading and giving this book to a family that lives in impoverished conditions in a colonias in Juarez. It is so well rendered in Spanish that the preschoolers soon had memorized large sections of the story. They were delighted with Juan Ramon. Within three days, the book had been shared so many times that it was beginning to look a little tattered. What a joy! Thank you to Dr. Seuss and the translator!
