Green Eggs and Ham

  • Title: Green Eggs and Ham
  • Author: Dr. Seuss
  • Illustrator: Dr. Seuss
  • Publisher: Beginner Books, a division of Random House Inc.
  • Publication year: 1960
  • Brief Summary: From Barnes & Noble-“Kids will love the terrific tongue-twisters as the list of places to enjoy green eggs and ham gets longer and longer…and they might even  learn a thing or two about trying new things!”
  • Ideas for using this book in classroom or library – I did find another helpful article on The Prindle Institute for Ethics that explores discussion questions to ask young children, such as preferences, and reason vs. experience. I explored 3 Dr. Seuss books for the first time since I was a child and read them myself. However, I made sure they weren’t any of the ones discussed during our lecture as showing racist imagery.
  • Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it.– While I enjoy the absurd present in Dr. Seuss’s books I really enjoy the simple rhyming that children can learn from these books.
