What amazes me is how great they are for a child starting to read.
Happy Birthday, according to the Guinness Book of Records is the most sung song in the world. Happy Birthday contains 16 words, of which only two are not repeated many times. In fact it has only six unique words. Part of the ease of understanding comes with repetition.
Green Eggs and Ham has about 60 unique words and 500 to 600 words overall, very cleverly done, and outstanding for a child learning to read, with entertaining color illustrations on each page, great rhyme, repetition and variation and parallel structure, even reversal.
Here is an example with parallel structure and rhyme:
So I will eat them in a box
And " " " " with a fox.
" " " " " in a house.
" " " " " with a mouse.
" " " " " here and there.
" " " " " anywhere.
Say! I will eat them ANYWHERE.
Now see if you can sing these words to the tune of Happy Birthday. I think you will find the meter is similar. It's quite ingenious. And I think Green Eggs and Ham will encourage a child to try new things.
And a reversal pattern:
I am Sam. Sam I am.
Hop on Pop is a great first book for a child to make rhyme associations through, very entertaining and for a beginner.
Fox in Socks is full of tongue twisters.
One fish two fish red fish blue fish. Notice the repetition through parallel structure.Read more ›
