Growth ray story
The Fatal Eggs - Mikhail Bulgakov,Hugh Aplin,Doris Lessing

Amazing that this is written in 1924.

 

A professor accidentally found a growth rate. 

 

The resulting egg would grow faster and then would continue to grow fast even without further exposure to this ray.

 

The professor has to give credit to the person who built the lab in order to get published.

 

Then problem come in the form that people misunderstood the study result. 

 

Everyone want to know about this ray. So much so that bribery is offered. 

 

Half way through and it is a nice little book.

 

Snakes. Horrifying snakes. A wrong delivery. 

 

Reading this Classic Horror square.

Green

“Green Eggs and Ham” is another brilliant classic from the creative mind of Dr. Seuss and it is about how Sam-I-Am tries to convince a furry guy in a black top hat to try out green eggs and ham. “Green Eggs and Ham” is an excellent book for children of all ages, but the repeating verses can be a bit painful to read over and over again if you are not used to reading the same verses over and over again.

Dr. Seuss’ illustrations are colorful and hilarious as they show images of Sam-I-Am and the tall furry creature in the black top hat going on outrageous adventures such as riding a car into a tree and then having the car drive on top of a train, while the images follow the repeating verses that Sam-I-Am proposes different ways of eating the green eggs and ham. Also, the characters themselves are creatively drawn, especially of the images of Sam-I-Am wearing a yellow shirt and a red hat, indicating that he is laid back, while the tall creature, who is nameless, wears a black top hat and is furry, which indicates that he has a somewhat reluctance to accept anything different. Dr. Seuss’ story is highly creative and hilarious as it details how Sam-I-Am tries to get the tall furry creature to eat green eggs and ham in a humorous way and children will easily be drawn to the wackiness of this story.

Green

Some children and parents might be a little annoyed at the constant repeating verses that the furry creature with the black top hat makes each time Sam-I-Am mentions a new way to eat green eggs and ham such as eating on a train and then eating on a boat. Some children might be a little bored with the repeating verses as they might complain that they already heard what the tall furry creature is complaining, while parents might find it a bit of a hassle to read the same verses over and over again.

“Green Eggs and Ham” is a wonderful book for children who are huge fans of Dr. Seuss and who want to read books about trying out new things in a creative way. I would recommend this book to children ages three and up since there is nothing inappropriate about this book and the verses are easy for small children to understand.

DRAGON'S FIRST CHRISTMAS by Emily Martha Sorenson
Dragon's First Christmas (Dragon Eggs Bo... Dragon's First Christmas (Dragon Eggs Book 3) - Emily Martha Sorensen

Virgil is a dragon with human parents who are trying to raise him in an apartment in NYC in 1920.  Rose and Henry are college students raising Virgil.  They are learning as they go.  So far they've learn Virgil is fascinated by the Christmas tree and that does not go well.  He is also eating a lot and they need to find out why and where can they put him to sleep.

 

What an imaginative, creative, interesting story!  I loved it.  It was fun to hear Virgil's thoughts and how he communicates.  I liked Rose and Henry even though they were very much like newly married couples defining their positions and territories in the early days of their marriage.  I have got to read the earlier books in this series to find out how the three of them ended up together.  What fun!

Green Eggs and Ham - Dr. Seuss

This book is always a fun read, at any age. Sam-I-Am makes a valiant effort to make the other character try green eggs and ham, but he claims that he doesn’t like green eggs and ham. Sam-I-Am offers suggestions of where the character could eat them, or how he could eat them, but he still does not want to try. In the end, he ends up trying them and liking them. I love the book’s rhymes and illustrations!

 

In the classroom, this book would be great to use for learning about rhyming, especially during Dr. Suess week
