Of course, as we all know... we simply cannot know if we will enjoy something... unless we try it first. And the message of this book goes beyond puke-coloured food. It hits somewhere deeper in all of us and sends the message that life is a smorgasbord of opportunity and deliciousness.

Synopsis

“Do you like green eggs and ham?” asks Sam-I-am in this Beginner Book by Dr. Seuss. In a house or with a mouse? In a boat or with a goat? On a train or in a tree? Sam keeps asking persistently. With unmistakable characters and signature rhymes, Dr. Seuss’s beloved favorite has cemented its place as a children’s classic. In this most famous of cumulative tales, the list of places to enjoy green eggs and ham, and friends to enjoy them with, gets longer and longer. Follow Sam-I-am as he insists that this unusual treat is indeed a delectable snack to be savored everywhere and in every way.

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

The Green Eggs and Ham theory works if parents keep offering new and healthy food, as hopefully, and eventually children will try them. Don't hesitate to try this method.

...we still have a long way to go in the efforts of racial equality. Much of our fears stem from senseless xenophobia...Often, we are expected to try something as ridiculous as eating green eggs and ham, and we automatically assume that we will not like them. We reject them without even trying them… but imagine the possibilities if we did!
