A riveting adventure from the brilliant minds of Kapilow Robert and Dr. Seuss. This intelligently written tale brings a advanced outlook to the way you decipher yourself as a being. This silly fable describes a cantankerous man who gets peeved by a adolescent young boy who just wanted him to try green eggs and ham. For thrill seekers and chill seekers alike, I highly recommend this book to human beings of all ages.
This book was in fact written by Dr. Seuss, regardless of what this site says. He wrote in on a bet that he couldn't write a book using only 50 different words. Dr. Seuss won, of course, although many suspect that his friend never paid.

Very cute book!!! You just have to love Dr. Seuss!!!!!!!!!!!!

This book is one of my favorites to read aloud to children. It reminds me of being in elementary school and getting to make green eggs and ham to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday. I think it is also a good way to warm children up to the idea of trying new things.

Any Dr. Seuss book is going to be a crowd pleaser for any child you read it to. The amount of goofiness that Dr. Seuss incorporates in every single one of his books is more than enough for a child to giggle and enjoy his short stories. As the story begins, Sam's friend is recalcitrant. He tells Sam-I-Am that he "would not like them" in "a box" or "a house," nor with "a fox" or "a mouse," that he "would not eat them here or there," and in fact "would not eat them anywhere."

Yet Sam-I-Am's friend's

Definitely one of my childhood favorites for learning to read and rhyme. I still have my eldest son's originals, of which I now use as bedtime/entertainment reading time to teach while having fun.
Green eggs and ham is a picture book for ages one to five years old. The book has won the New Yrok States three apples award.
Summary: The book is an original and familiar Dr. Seuss book. All about rhyming and trying new things!

Evaluation: The book centers around the Cat and Sam I Am. I think this is a very effective and important book. Its all about trying new things. You never know what you like until you try it. Sam I am offers green eggs and ham to the cat in a number of places but he over

A little boy named Sam asks a man if he will eat green eggs and ham. The man says that he won't and that he doesn't like green eggs and ham. The man is kind of grumpy and old so he keeps getting annoyed by Sam. Sam keeps asking the man and the man keeps rejecting him.

Sam keeps asking the man if he wants green eggs and ham. Same comes up with some super crazy ways to get him to eat green eggs and ham. The man gets really annoyed and finally decides to make a deal with Sam to get him to leave him

First off, I have always enjoyed Dr. Seuss. So this book, Green Eggs and Ham I of course enjoyed. The reason why I enjoy these books so much is because I remember reading all of his books when I was a little girl. The words in his books, such as Green Eggs and Ham, are quite "simple" (I say this with caution), and the words rhyme so it makes the reading, and book more fun. All of Dr. Seuss books have similar styled pictures. The illustrations had lots of color, and the pictures tell a good story ...more

Personal response: I read this book to my "little brother" mason. He is three years old and he said he loved the book and wanted to keep reading it over and over again.

Summary: This book is a silly story for kids to read or a book to be read to kids. It starts off with him asking if he wants ham and he says no. But he keeps asking if wants to eat it in all of these different places. Then by the end of the book he says he will finally eat the green eggs and ham.

Recommendation: I recommend this

I bought Dr. Suess when my kids were young and hated reading them. They seemed too silly to me in my twenties. What a pompous ass I was at twenty! I read GEWH to my grandson and discovered the whimsy and fun of the lyrical words. I was a concrete kind of reader. I wanted my characters to be more recognizable. There is nothing in the world like a Dr. Suess book. Imagination takes flight with absurd situations to try something new. I should have "tried it" when I was younger. Given this new type o ...more

When I was younger, I loved ridiculous poems like Edward Lear's poems and limericks. Then I came across 'Green Eggs and Ham' and the title alone was enough to interest me. Was it just the eggs that were green, or was the ham green as well? I simply had to find out. The edition I came across didn't show the eggs and ham on the cover, so the only way I could answer my question was to look inside and read more, and I was hooked. If you're looking for John Donne, look away. If you're looking for som ...more

Dr. Seuss is a wonderful author. Green Eggs and Ham is a classic, among many others. Green Eggs and Ham is about Sam-I-Am refusing to try the green eggs and ham even though he has never tried them before. He is given different situations in which he could eat them and continues to refuse until the end of the book. Once he finally gave in, he learned that they weren't actually bad, and he enjoyed them. This book is very simple and a good way to learn how to rhyme. This could also teach

The book "Dr. Seuss's Green Eggs and Ham" is actually one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books. Just like many of his books his illustrations are very detailed and colorful. These types of illustrations keeps kids interested and engaged. The poetry in this book gathers a very good rhyming rhythm. In this book about every pair of sentences rhymes with each other. Another reason this book is a good selection is because it promotes kids to try new things. As I said before this book is an example of poetr ...more

Although this is one of the more popular reads by Dr. Seuss, it is not necessarily one of my favorites. It is a great book for beginner readers, because the story contains less than fifty words within the short verbiage on each page. The illustrations are very typical of a Dr. Seuss book, but that is great reason to give this one a read. The colors are matched with the story line, so this is also an opportunity for young readers to reinforce colors as well as new and familiar vocabulary. Overall ...more

So many memories with this book. My parents read it to me. In kindergarten the librarian read it to the class and then we ate green eggs and ham. My parents and I read it to my little brother. I have read it to my niece and will read it to my nephew soon. I once read a book set in the year 3000 BC on our earth. Libraries and books had all gone digital, hologram actually, but the people wanted to have a reminder of physical books. They had a vote and people chose "Green Eggs and Ham" to be the on ...more

One of Dr. Seuss' best works (although you could say that about most of them). Wonderful rhymes and a humorous tale that like much of Seuss' work has an important message for everyone: How can you know if you don't like something if you've never even tried it?

This is a book (and author) parents should introduce their children too early and often. Seuss makes reading fun, exciting, and teaches children wordplay regardless of whether or not the words are real. I have not come across one child thro

This book is a classic, and I read it again because the last time I read it I was a little kid. My mom always used to read this book to me before I went to bed and it's my favorite Dr. Seuss book by far because of that experience that I had. A lot of his books were free verse but he somehow made them rhyme in some places - Dr. Seuss was a very unique author, and this was one of his best books. I will for sure have this on my shelf in my classroom because I want my future students to have the sam ...more

I love Green Eggs and Ham. Dr. Seuss is one of my favorite children's authors, and this is one of my favorite books by him. This book is about the main character, Sam I am, talking his friend into trying green eggs and ham. After repeatedly declining the food, her friend finally gives in and tries the green eggs and ham and is pleasantly surprised. I love his use of rhymes and tongue twisters. Kids love listening to Dr. Seuss books during a read-loud. I can't wait to read this book to my class a ...more

This book is about a character named Sam who is trying to get another character to eat green eggs and ham. Sam is asking the other character over and over again if he will eat the green eggs and ham in all different places and he keeps refusing them. The genre of this book is poetry and fiction. It is for ages 5-7 years old. I rated this book four stars because it is very funny and encourages children to try new things, like food. Some common themes in this book are discovery, and persistence.

Back in the day....when I learned to read.
In fact, this was the first book I ever read all myself cover to cover.

What an accomplishment and the story behind the masterful work is undeniably heartwarming.

What began as an insistent love/hate acquaintanceship, turns into a warm friendship that might have almost never been. And I remember that on St. Patties Day we would have green scrambled eggs or breakfast, I was always sad I never got green ham.

Shelves: children
This picture book is appropriate for children under 10 years old. This story is about green eggs and ham. A character named Sam pesters a unnamed character throughout the story about eating green eggs and ham, while rhyming the entire time. I gave this book a 4 star rating because of the entertaining story throughout and the fun banter between characters. Children would love this book because of the humor throughout and the fun rhyming.
