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.

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.

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.
