Inspired by: Dr. Seuss Challenge for March.
Green Eggs and Ham was my favorite book as a child and after seeing her challenge, going to the book store and looking through all the Dr. Seuss books I realized it still is! I think I can still recite it almost word for word, which is easy as it only uses 50 words total. This was because Bennett Cerf, Dr. Seuss's Publisher made him a bet of $50 that he couldn't write a childrens book using only 50 words.
Theo won (Dr. Seuss' real name). :)
It's not like other books that have a moral or a theme or political statement (did you know that Yertle the Turtle was about Hitler?), but just that it's pure fun.
I guess if you'd have to pinpoint a moral or lesson from this story it would be that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover and you should not make hasty judgments without knowing all the facts.
In this case you can't say you don't like something unless you tried it first!
