“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 unusual treat is indeed a delectable snack to be savored
everywhere and in every way.
Green Eggs and Ham is a “classic” children’s story. I
remember it was pretty popular when I was a child. However, my son and I both
got bored with it at times. It was more exciting towards the end, and maybe it
will be more interesting to him when he gets a little older, but as of now he
didn’t like how it was so repetitive.
But, we did like it overall, and the ending was very good
and teaches children that maybe they should try those things that don’t look so
good before judging them.
