What more can really be said about GREEN EGGS AND HAM: PARTY EDITION by Dr. Seuss? I think it's a standard go-to book in almost every house I know. My husband and I both agreed that it was one of our favorites books from when we were kids, and I had a great time introducing it to my two!
Last night, my son and I sat down to read GREEN EGGS AND HAM together. He is still learning to read and I was very proud of how well he did with this book. The book is ideal for beginning readers because it has some basic words, rhymes and lots of repetition. And then I started to wonder just how many children learned to read by picking up GREEN EGGS AND HAM. The book is celebrating its 50th anniversary so I can only imagine how many hundreds of thousands (millions?) of children have enjoyed this story through the years.
