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.

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.
