Giveaway: Ham-I-Am Giveaway

Summary: To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original publication of Green Eggs and Ham, we’re making available—for a limited time only—a special foil-covered Party Edition at the regular-edition price of $8.99. This highly collectible edition of the beloved Seuss classic (the story of Sam-I-Am’s determined campaign to convince another Seussian character to eat a plate of green eggs and ham) makes a perfect gift that will be cherished by young and old alike. -- Random House

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.

In addition to the book, I wanted to share a little something else with you. I found a very fun page on The Other White Meat website which has some recipes inspired by GREEN EGGS AND HAM. You will find recipes for a Ham Sandwich with Greens and Eggs, Ham and Green Egg Mini Tartlets, Ham and Avocado Deviled Eggs, and Ham and Green Egg Sushi. I can't think of a better way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of GREEN EGGS AND HAM.

Oh wait! Maybe I can thing of one better way to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of GREEN EGGS AND HAM! I have a fantastic giveaway with items provided by the National Pork Board. One lucky winner will receive the following:

·         GREEN EGGS AND HAM 50th Anniversary Edition
·         One set of adult sized Green Eggs and Ham apron/chef hat
·         One set of kid sized Green Eggs and Ham apron/chef hat

·         One extendable fork

To enter, just fill out the form below December 16th at 11:59 p.m. ET. I will randomly select and notify the winner the following day. This contest is open to those of you with U.S. addresses. Good luck!

This is just too much fun to pass up! My husband shares his birthday with Dr. Seuss, so we have fun with that each year.

It's rather depressing to realize that I am actually older than Green Eggs and Ham
