“Do you like green eggs and ham?” asks Sam-I-am in this Beginner book by Dr. Seuss. In a house or with a mouse? In a boat or with a goat? On a train or in a tree? Sam keeps asking persistently. With unmistakable characters and signature rhymes, Dr. Seuss’s beloved favorite has cemented its place as a children’s classic. In this most famous of cumulative tales, the list of places to enjoy green eggs and ham, and friends to enjoy them with, gets longer and longer. Follow Sam-I-am as he insists that this odd treat is indeed a delectable snack to be savored all over and in each way.
Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.
This timeless Dr. Seuss classic used to be 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 imaginable in the hopes of convincing the nameless skeptic that green eggs and ham are a delicacy to be savored. He tries each 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 in any case, finally the doubter caves under the tremendous pressure exerted by the tireless Sam-I-am. And guess what? Well, you most likely 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 in any case take a taste of their broccoli. (Ages 4 to 8)
