about

“Do you like green eggs and ham?” asks Sam-I-am in this Beginner Book by Dr. Seuss. In a house or with a mouse? In a boat or with a goat? On a train or in a tree? Sam keeps asking persistently. With unmistakable characters and signature rhymes, Dr. Seuss’s beloved favorite has cemented its place as a children’s classic. In this most famous of cumulative tales, the list of places to enjoy green eggs and ham, and friends to enjoy them with, gets longer and longer. Follow Sam-I-am as he insists that this unusual treat is indeed a delectable snack to be savored everywhere and in every way.

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss I think Seuss is a genius at two distinct genres of children's lit -- the message book and the early reader. This is the book in which I feel that he best balances the two. From the message side, Sam teaches us about persistence while his unnamed, sceptical pal learns that one need not cling desperately to an old idea because ideas (like tastes in oddly coloured foodstuffs) can change. But it's also a great example of what a child's reader should be. It has an engaging plot, but effectively uses repetition of simple, rhyming words to enable the developing reader to begin reading along quickly. And the illustrations are brilliant as the Seussian ones always are.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay This book will never get old, and is a true classic from Dr. Seuss. However, that said, it is not among my favourites. I remember as a child trying to figure out this story. As an adult I gave it another try and was left with the same confusion. It is silly and sure to be loved in many homes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I do so like green eggs and ham. Green Eggs and Ham was one of my favorite children's books when I was little. My children love it, especially when you read it to them in different voices for the different characters. It's a book with repetitive words that rhyme. Great for beginners just learning to read.
Date published: 2017-01-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for Early Readers This would be the first Dr Seuss book I would recommend reading. While it is long, it only has 50 different words, so it is very good for beginning readers so they can practice those 50 words. Also quite repetitive, and it rhymes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a great classic Growing up this was my favorite book not only because my name is sam and I have always been called Sam-I-Am, but because of the enjoyment I have always gotten from this book. Sam-I-Am only wanted his freind to try some green eggs and ham, but because of the way they looked he wouldn't eat them anywhere or with anything. Once he finally tried them he realized that Sam was right, they were great and he would now eat them anywhere and with anything or anyone. Dr. Seuss is a great author and I have enjoyed all of his books, but Green eggs and ham is by far my favorite one to read. I have read it to my nephew several times and he enjoys it also. Dr. Seuss like many authors had some ups and downs with his books, but in the end has many books out there that both young and old get to enjoy and I appreciate all the work he has done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book for people of any age When I first read this book, I must have been about 4, now I am 14 and I still love it. It is one of my all-time favourites. Dr. Seuss was a genius in his time, he had the ability to make the ordinary, like eggs and ham, into a hillarious work of art that anyone with half a sense of humour will LOVE. I recently read this to my 2 year old cousin, she adored it even though she couldn't understand all of it, she loved it because of how funny some of the words sound. It is also a great read for anyone who just needs cheering up; you can't help but laugh at this incredably funny book.

Extra Content

From Our Editors

This classic children's book shows kids how everyone has something they don't like to eat, but that the dislike comes from just not having tried to eat it. Sam-I-Am wants his friend to try green eggs and ham, a meal he thoroughly enjoys but that makes his friend shudder. Green Eggs and Ham is Dr. Seuss' playfully illustrated book with the usual fun with repeated words and phrases. Kids will eagerly read on to the end of this book to see if Sam-I-Am can open his friend's mind.

Employee Review

Bennet Cerf, the founder of Random House, bet Dr. Seuss fifty dollars that he could not write a book using just fifty words. Seuss won that bet with this book, one of the most well-read and loved children's stories of our time. Although it is lengthy for a kid's book, the repetitiveness make the sounds familiar to the kids, and helps them pay attention. Seuss states in his biography, Dr. Seuss and Mr. Geisel: "It's the only book I ever wrote that still makes me laugh." He adds: "Bennet never paid!" Read this book again for the first time.
