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 readingGreen 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)
A Children's Classic Quite possibly one of the most popular children's books of all time, this story revolves around Sam-I-Am unrelenting attempts to get the grown-up in the story to sample some green eggs and ham. Sam-I-Am presents the meal in several different ways (in a box, with a fox, on a train, in the rain) but his cantankerous friend still refuses to eat the peculiar dish. In the end, Sam-I-Am's determination pays off, prompting his pal to take a bite. The old sourpuss ends up liking green eggs and ham.
This was one of my favorite books when I was growing up and I still enjoy reading it to this day. It has timeless appeal, something that you don't see in a lot of children's literature nowadays. Dr. Seuss' trademark rhymes, his colorful illustrations, and his creative cast of characters all combine to make an unforgettable classic. It's a book for all ages to enjoy.
This book has a very simple yet important message: Don't be afraid to try new things. That can be incorporated into classrooms at just about every level. It can be used to teach kindergartners and first graders to eat their vegetables and it can also be used to teach older students not to be afraid to stand up to one of life's many challenges. Aside from that, this book could also be used to teach students about poetry and rhyming.
homework I liked the book, Green Eggs and Ham. We recently read it in my colege class. I hadn't read it for years. It's a classic and brings back childhood memories for many. I like the way the book uses repetition and rhyming. It's about a character named Sam who's trying to convince the unnamed character to try green eggs and ham. The unnamed character thinks he doesn't like them and is adimant that he won't try them anywhere no matter the circumstance. Sam finally wares him down to the point of trying them just to shut Sam up. When he finally tries them he realizes that he likes them and would eat them anywhere. I recomend this book for children or anyone who would like to remember their childhood.Green Eggs and Ham, 50 Word Vocabulary This book is extraordinarily good. This is my number one favorite book. It is the ultimate Seuss experience. Dr. Seuss wrote the story using only 50 words. I recommend the Green Eggs and Ham board game and the videos or DVDs. I also recommend the Green Eggs and Ham CD ROM game by Living Books. I have been reading reviews by customers who like the book and I agree with all their favorable reviews.
