I'm rating this books so I can see all the database activity that is created.

But I'm pretty sure this books was awesome. It will be my first re-read once goodreads lets me count it towards my reading challenge.

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.
i love all dr.seuss books. this is one of my favorites. i read this book in kindergarden and i still read it.
My first!!I hid out in the guesthouse I sat on the blue flowered love seat and read this. Happy girl I was!!

super fun for small, medium and large children and their parents. The happy silly words are just perfect

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

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

This is my all time favorite book by Dr. Seuss. The rhyme is wonderful and the kindergarteners I work with just love Sam I Am...So do I because no matter how many times I read it, it never gets old.

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

It was annoying to me but, that's because, I was practically made to read this through out elementary school.
Aczel Barron
I have to say this book was amazing.I would to try the eggs and ham.I dont understand why the eggs were green.
This was one of my favorite books when I was little. I would have my parents read it to me all the time.
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

One of my most favorite childhood memories that I could share with my children. As a parent this was one of the first books that I read to my children before they even started preschool. I believe this book was a helping hand in my children's advanced reading level.

This is where a troublesome little who called Sam I am is persistently offering our main character a dish called green eggs and ham. In a variety of places, and with a variety of animals. Don't miss out on the classic that has inspir

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
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
My childhood favorite
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.
Tasha Johnson
The very well known Dr. Seuss tale of Green Eggs and Ham will have students reading along with you and truly engaged in the story. The story is very decidable and perfect for beginners. As Sam I Am moves through the story to different places that rhyme he tries to get you to want green eggs and ham. There are endless activities to go along with this popular picture book. This is also an easy read for an individual K or 1st grade reader.
