Green Eggs and Ham

Chances are that if you enjoyed reading growing up, you’ve read a Dr Seuss book. The books that he wrote have been charming children for many years now, in fact it’s the 60th birthday of Green Eggs and Ham and there is a brand-new look to this popular classic to celebrate!

Sam-I-am is determined to get a grumpy grouch to eat a plate of green eggs and ham. The only problem is that the grouch isn’t at all keen to try this new food. No matter what he tries to suggest, Sam-I-am in having no luck in convincing him to eat it.

“I do not like them,


I do not like

green eggs and ham.”

You children will enjoy the rhyming story, and also learn a valuable lesson in never being afraid to try something new…you cannot know what you like until you try it after all! Sam didn’t give up on getting his friend to try something new, in fact he asked 16 times before he succeeded in getting his friend to try it.

Green Eggs and Ham seeks to teach little ones to be determined and open-minded.  The book is written using only fifty words, and is a good choice to start your Dr Seuss collection with.

The 60th anniversary celebration paperback of Green Eggs and Ham is available for a recommended retail price of R145 from book stores and online retailers. It’s recommended for children aged four to eight years of age.

Thanks to Jonathan Ball Publishers for sharing this 60th anniversary edition with us.
