As a child, Dr. Seuss has molded and shaped my imagination and sense of fantasy ever since I can remember.  In Green Eggs and Ham, the sense of tallness and stacking and items toppling over...there was such a sense of being on edge throughout all of these stories.  Green Eggs and Ham has simply got to be my favorite...a most exciting and disgusting tale of rhyme and not so much reason!      I would recommend reading this book to children and adults of all ages.   …

I love green eggs and ham by Doctor Seuss. I grew up reading all of his books, including Green eggs and ham. I found it to be entertaining that no matter how much he said he did not want green eggs and ham, he would still ask him in different ways. This annoyed my parents greatly when I started asking questions the same way Doctor Seuss’s characters would in his books. I guess I could say that Green Eggs and Ham taught me how to be persistent and ask a lot of questions!

This is normally the book you'd read while growing up and learning English.  I use it at the library to help my international friends practice English.  Some of the words inside are unusual and made up, so they are fun to go along with.  Dr. Seuss had a way to make a story exciting and flavorful for kids and adults.  No wonder they made it all into cartoons and movies.       This story is a classic because it will only get popular over time.  …

Who doesn’t love Green Eggs and Ham?  My mother, for one!  I remember as a child, my brothers and I literally memorized the words to the entire book.  Every night we would ask to read Green Eggs and Ham!  My mom was so annoyed with us that she hid the book in the back of the closet.  She tried to tell us that it was lost, so she couldn’t read it to us.  No problem, Mom, we have it memorized!  We’ll just recite the lines instead.

Be ready for a tongue twister! As a mom, there are many books I can sort of read on auto-pilot at bedtime.. meaning I can actually multitask while I'm reading, and think of other things. Crazy, I know, but such is the life of a busy mom with a million to-do's ; ) THIS book, however, and most any Dr Seuss book (of which we have several my daughter loves including one about space and another about the ocean) -- requires my full focus in order to spit out the delightful rhymes without stumbling over …

Awesome childhod favorite
Green eggs and Ham what can u say about it. Only one  word comes to mind classic. Dr Seuss has written many great books but this is one of his greatest. He has so influenced my reading habits. My reading life as started by this author. This was also a great introduction into the world of poetry and creative writing.  This is the book that started me on my journey into reading. I can vividly remember being six years old picking it up and reading it over and over again. I love the use of …

I know a young man who wrote one of his college entrance essays based on this.

This is pure genius, just what the Dr. ordered. Green eggs and ham is a classic story. I grew up reading it over and over again as a child. I loved the rhyming scheme and pattern. The words seem to just roll off of your tongue, like a slippery verbal roller coaster. The simple, but bizarre and unique art style draws you into this wacky world. It’s just strange enough to capture the imagination, attention, and the hearts of children.    I really enjoy the persistence of the …

I have loved this book since I was a child, and now I am reading it to my children. They like it just as much as I did. This is one of those books that will last generations to come and everyone will enjoy it and learn something from it. I learned, as did my daughter, it is ok to try new things even if you don't think you will like it. My daughter didn't like to try new foods so i read this book to her and now she will at least try it even if she doesn't like the way it looks...lol

My favorite Dr. Seuss book as a kid. I loved the rhythm and would recite the rhymes constantly for a while. I still appreciate this work for what it is, and kids definitely still love it.
review by . August 11, 2010
My reaction to reading this book again was wonderful and brought back many memories of reading for the first time, while reading to my children as a parent.  I would certainly recommend this book to others as it is a classic and great read.  Compared with other Dr. Seuss books, this one is my personal favorite and the kids love to recite it after reading.  Great memory recall.

The Butter Battle Book is better political commentary.

"Green Eggs and Ham" is such a fun book to read out loud. I love reading this book to my daughter. It has a great pace and rhythm, and since the entire story is told through dialog, you can really have fun with the voices for the two characters.

I find Dr. Seuss to be an insipid antagonist of meaning, culture and non-postmodern values: he teaches children that the world has no real consequences, as do most other modern cartoons.

You can never go wrong with Dr Seuss. Green eggs and ham is one of the most epic classics of all time.

I really like Green Eggs and Ham. I like the pictures and SamIAm. And even though I've reached middle age, I still would read it, page by page.

It was so simple …

Hahah, Dr. Suess at his finest! I do, I do like green eggs and ham!

The message is realy straight, you may like because of the american culture, but this is not the best children`s book.

For a children's "retro" read, this Dr. Suess book is so fun to share with your children.
Quick Tip by . July 13, 2010
Every child should read this book. They are light and funny and you learn something along the way.

Good Seuss...but way not as good as The Sleep Book, or Butter Side Up/Butter Side Down War...

My mom used to read this to me my brother and sister when we were younger. It kind of made me realize that you shouldn't knock it until you've tried it. I'm now a vegetarian though.
Quick Tip by . July 09, 2010
This book was written on a dare, as most people know. Someone asked Dr. Seuss if he could write a book in which only the most popularaly used words (I think the top fifty) were used in the story. What a success, and a masterpiece of the children story genre.
