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

Green Eggs and Ham - Dr. Seuss

Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss is a great book to read during Dr. Seuss week and whenever you just want to pick up a great book. The rhyming and repetition of words is good for students to read or practice reading. This book can give me great ideas to do within the my students. Ideas such as making green eggs and ham or having the students to wear green on the day I read the books to the students.

Green Eggs and Ham - Dr. Seuss

What can you same about Dr. Seuss that hasn't already been said?  Sam-I-Am is very determined in this book completely devoted to his antics. He determines everyone should eat green eggs and ham because it is amazingly good. So, he sets out to convince everyone he meets that they too should eat green eggs and ham. However, he meets some resistance which only makes him more determined to convince his friend.  This book is a definite must during Dr. Seuss week at school.  As part of a weekly study on this author I would take a step out of what is considered the norm for a reading lesson and make green eggs and ham in the classroom. The students would then to an analysis of what color green eggs and ham they like (which green shade is better) and write down in complete sentences where they would eat them.
