Book Review: Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss

Green Eggs and HamGreen Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Coming from a mother of at least three soon-to-be voracious readers (they can’t read yet, but they LOVE to be read to — the baby hasn’t gotten there yet), this book is a favorite. The kids love the rhymes, they love the illustrations, and this book is brought to me almost every single night to be read before bedtime.

I have always loved Dr. Seuss, simply for the creativity of it all. The way everything was set in an absurdly magical world but still taught worldly values always intrigued me. Even as an adult, I could sit and read these books over and over again simply to relax my mind and let the magic flow.

In my eyes, Dr. Seuss is one of the greats when it comes to children’s literature, and it’s unlikely to every change.

    I agree on Dr Seuss. Good for you and good for your kids!
    As I child I also loved Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling and Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransome. And the book that got me immersed in historical fiction was The Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliff.

      My oldest two and I are reading The Swiss Family Robinsons right now. A chapter or two a night, and they are loving it. My younger two got a giant book of nursery rhymes for Christmas that we read every night. I am thrilled that they love to read as much as I do!
