It’s the first day of the My Little Bookcase reading challenge. Today’s book is a classic – Green Eggs and Ham by Dr Seuss.
This is a fun book, and very silly. I think it was the sillyness that my kids loved the most, especially the idea of eating green eggs and ham.
If you haven’t read it before, Sam-I-Am is trying to convince another character to try eating green eggs and ham. It goes through all the ways and places he won’t eat them, until he tries them at the end.
There’s a wonderful rhythm to the words, so much that we had memorised the story at one stage and I have memories of Mr N “reading” this book to his little brother. The illustrations are also great, in the typical Dr Seuss style.
I apologise for the quality of the photo. My flash card reader has died so I took this pic on my phone.
