It shows you shouldn't even deny something until you try it. I always say ill try anything once.

Every child should own a copy of this classic. ( )

The basic story is a classic Seussian power struggle between two poor souls placed on an odd plane of reality with the mandate to impose their will on one another by any means necessary, but I like this one because it works if you read it singsongy in the traditional way but also if you read it straight, and is quite funny in either case.

This book is a classic which is filled with rhyming and repetition. The narrator is pressured to eat green eggs and ham multiple times in multiple situations by Sam-I-Am, in which he turns down each time. In the end, the narrator decides to taste the green eggs and ham and actually likes them. ( )

Always try something before saying "no" you may end up liking it. And the one offering it to you, be encouraging but not over powering. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0394800168, Hardcover)

This timeless Dr. Seuss classic was 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 possible in the hopes of convincing the nameless skeptic that green eggs and ham are a delicacy to be savored. He tries every 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 finally, finally the doubter caves under the tremendous pressure exerted by the tireless Sam-I-am. And guess what? Well, you probably 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 finally take a taste of their broccoli. (Ages 4 to 8)
