Green Eggs and Ham

Press: Picture Lions; New Ed edition (2003)
Publication Date:2003-5
Author Name:Dr. Seuss


Pulitzer Prize–winning Dr. 
Seuss’s classic Beginner Book is now part of a book and audio CD package, with word-for-word storytelling by Jason Alexander.
  Sam-I-Am is persistent in his hope of convincing the nameless skeptic that green eggs and ham are a delicacy to be savored everywhere and in every way.
He tries all manners of presentation—in a house, with a mouse, in a box, with a fox, on a boat, with a goat.
In this most famous of cumulative rhyming tales, the list of places to enjoy green eggs and ham, and friends to enjoy them with, gets longer and longer.
When the doubter finally does eat the green eggs and ham, he loves them, making this book a perfect pick for picky eaters.
Originally created by Dr.
Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meanings.

  •     This book is a classic and takes me back to my childhood! Now I'm reading it to my son and he loves it too. This is a nice hardcover and a perfect size for little hands. It's our 4th Dr. Seuss book added to our collection and it won't be the last.

  •     Green Eggs and Ham was the first book I learned to read.My husband and I have 5 Beatufil children and when they were younger we would read this book to them almost...

  •     Classic

  •     love, love, love

  •     Great book! I and my childeren love it!

  •     This is perhaps my all-time favorite Dr. Seuss book, so it's always perplexed me why it can be so hard to find. Every major book store location I've looked in the past couple of years has not carried this particular title, and it's baffling, because the story line and illustrations in this book always deeply inspired my imagination as a child, evoking images of adventure, exotic places, faraway times, mysterious locales ... perhaps my interest in pre-modern history, and especially the histories of ancient and medieval civilizations, has something to do with why this book always so appealed to me.Now that my best friend has two little ones (a 3-year-old and an eight-month-old), I wanted to share this book with her and her children so they could potentially experience the same delight and wonder that I recall. I'm also expecting my first, and will have to order a second copy to have for my own collection!

  •     One of my favorite books growing up. Drove my folks nuts with it when I memorized it.

  •     This book is a classic. It is great for kids and adults to read together. It introduces poems to kids and is a great teaching book.

  •     The rhythm of the story, the building of the places to eat green eggs and ham, the characters in the pictures, we'll never forget you Sam-I-am!

  •     good seller A+

  •     We love, love, love, this lift-the-flap book. Green Eggs and Ham is a great story. Toddlers love lifting flaps. But this book is even better than that. Many of the flaps are constructed very cleverly so that the flap, when opened, connects with and changes the illustration on the page to further the story. It really is a fun book for both children and adults to read. I highly recommend it for kids ages 18m - 5y.My only complaint is that the book comes with a sheet of stickers, some of which are meant to be added to the last page. I wish that the last page just had the illustrations and that the stickers were just extra or not included at all. While we placed the stickers in their intended place, some of them have since been torn out so now the flaps are just empty.But, that is a small complaint that shouldn't stop you from buying this great book.

  •     Classic book, need I say more

  •     I purchased this for my daughter after remembering it from my childhood. My husband and i were a little disappointed. We love cat and the hat and my daughter does too.This one is very repetitive which to a certain extent all Dr. Seuss books are, but green eggs and ham is more so in my opinion. My daughter lost interest in this pretty quickly.

  •     I was hesitant to buy this book (that I love) because of so many negative reviews regarding paper quality. I actually removed it from my cart and then went to a book store to see the quality for myself. Yes, it is true that you can see some of the impressions of the previous page through the current page. However, I did not find it distracting in any way. I did not think it was a sign of poor paper quality. I thought the quality of the book felt as good as the one I had as a child. Because the images contain a lot of black lines and dark green ham :), I think it is inevitable that some of these lines will show through. Please, still consider buying this book. Please, still consider buying any/all Dr. Seuss books. I am so glad I bought this despite the reviews on paper quality. My husband read it before I wrapped it as a gift. He loved it and had no issues either!

  •     I purchased this book (as well as all of the other Dr. Seuss books) as soon as they became available for the Kindle. It helped that there was a great promotional price at the time but the real motivator was to have them for my, at that time, infant grandson to read.Fast forward a couple of years and I realized that while the Kindle version is great to have (especially when on-the-go), nothing really replaces having the actual book in hand for a toddler. My grandson is now almost three years old and can handle the delicate process of turning thin, paper pages. He loves to sit and “read” books to himself or to his baby sister. Because of this new realization, I have decided to pick up the books in this series in hardback format.“Green Eggs and Ham” is one of the wonderful books I remember from my own childhood and I love the book's rhymes and illustrations. It was one of the Dr. Seuss books that I purchased and read to my children when they were young. We still have those old books but I gave them to my daughters when they moved away from home so they could keep an important piece of their childhood with them. I now get to have the opportunity to buy them again and enjoy reading them to a new generation.

  •     This is the greatest story ever written. The doctor should have been hyped to Dr. Suess PhD, DDS, MD OvLuv because the man can spin a tail that brings tears to the most masculine of eyes. If you are into that whole men need to be tough thing. During my life, people have tried to argue for other books in the Seuss library, but those folks are wrong. Opinion does not even play a part.Stanford University did a study on the perfect combinations of words and then applied the equation to every book ever written. Green Eggs and Ham came out with the highest score. In fact, the second place score was 50% of the GEaH score. Don't bother looking it up because there are RFbF (Red Fish blue Fish) members that have infiltrated the librarian society and erased all of the evidence.It's a damn shame when people are still trying to deny the WORD. They have created songs to distract you telling you that the bird is in fact the word. Well it isn't the word, Kyle!

  •     I grew up with The Sneetches, Green Eggs and Ham, and Yertle the Turtle, but only discovered this one as an adult. Wonderful wonderful wonderful.
