Amazon.com Review

This timeless Dr. Seuss classic was once first published in 1960, and has been delighting readers ever since. Sam-I-am is as persistent as a telemarketer, changing as many variables as conceivable in the hopes of convincing the nameless skeptic that green eggs and ham are a delicacy to be savored. He tries each manner of presentation with this “nouveau cuisine”–in a house, with a mouse, in a box, with a fox, with a goat, on a boat–to no avail. Then in the end, finally the doubter caves under the tremendous pressure exerted by the tireless Sam-I-am. And guess what? Well, you most likely know what happens, but even after reading Green Eggs and Ham the thousandth time, the climactic realization that green eggs and ham are “so good, so good, you see” is still a rush. As usual, kids will love Dr. Seuss’s wacky rhymes and whimsical illustrations–and this time, they might even be so moved as to in the end take a taste of their broccoli. (Ages 4 to 8)
