    There are two kinds of people in the world. Those who like green eggs and ham, and those who don't. Well, three. Those who like green eggs and ham. Those who don't. And those who like the green eggs but not the ham. It's just ham, not green ham. We should get that straight. Oh, correction, it's green ham too. Anyhow four kinds of people. The haters, the likers, the green egg but not green hammers, and the green hammers but not green eggs.

Actually I guess there are the people who would eat them with a fox, but not in a box. And some who would eat them with a fox, in a box, on a train, but not with a goat. Ok. So there are lots of kinds of people in the world. Dr Seuss invents diversity. Kudos. Really the book is about the key existential question in the 20th and 21st centuries. Green food, yes or no, and under what conditions. It's a metaphor for where a man ... or woman ... or thing called Sam ... draws the line. Where people, where will you draw that line? Green eggs and (green) ham is a cipher for our age, an antithesis to the jejune, a whirlwind of growing complexity into which we pour our souls and come face to face with the naked question - will we try them? Try them and we may, I say. Seuss offers us a black and white and green question - do we like them? But this devolves into shades of grey (green), we're crippled with choice, seduced by the rhythm, shocked by the goat. In the end, my friends, there are only two kinds of people. Those who push the 'like' button on my review of Green Eggs and Ham, and those who suck. Join my 3-emails-a-year newsletter #prizes ....

    This is a very complex story of two gentlemen from two very different walks of life. Introvert, extrovert... good, evil... Democrat, Republican... you get the idea. It also parallels the generational gap between those set in their ways, and those willing to venture out and explore perhaps a different approach to life. However you dissect it, there is an initial, almost uncomfortable clash between the two main characters in this saga. None the less, you cannot help but continue to turn the pages This is a very complex story of two gentlemen from two very different walks of life. Introvert, extrovert... good, evil... Democrat, Republican... you get the idea. It also parallels the generational gap between those set in their ways, and those willing to venture out and explore perhaps a different approach to life. However you dissect it, there is an initial, almost uncomfortable clash between the two main characters in this saga. None the less, you cannot help but continue to turn the pages as you delve into this story, no matter how uncomfortable it may seem at the time. You find yourself relating to either of the characters, and perhaps even a little of both. The main crux of the story relates one man, Sam I Am, trying to please the elderly statesman into venturing into unknown worlds. The elderly character, who is nameless, seems old and set in his ways, seeming to fall back onto years of wisdom, and contradictally, foolishness, as he puts up walls between himself and Sam. Sam is relentless in his persuit to please the elder. Houses, foxes, goats, tunnels, trains, boats, mice. The story finally climaxes as the two characters have experienced a horrendous shipwreck, and as they are fighting for their lives together in the angry sea, the culmination of Sam's efforts converge into one page... a page without a word being spoken. The elder gentleman finally steps outside of his comfort zone, and realizes that he has wasted much energy fighting the personal demons that dwelled inside him. Rescued and back on shore, Sam and the gentleman forge a relationship that is much stronger than it could have ever been, had neither character played the "give and take" game that solidifies our own relationships we experience in our own lives. We see a little (or a lot) of each one of us in both characters, and I believe that the author is trying to deliver a message for generations to come about the importance of harmony in relationships. I highly recommend this book. You can easily finish it in a weekend. Once you start, it will be hard to put down.

    First let me say I love Dr. Seuss. I just finished reading 'Green Eggs And Ham' with my granddaughter and we really enjoyed it. In short, the book teaches children to try something first before they decide they don't like something. The illustrations are great! I beleve we can all take a lesson from this one.

    Dr. Seuss's Orwellian dystopia finds him once again subverting reality in his funhouse world. He's not being subtle about it either. It's wild that there are whole generations who think this is cute: courtesy of this woman who is undoubtedly super nice If your ham and eggs are green, they are rancid. Of course they are! That's what green means! They're made of poison now. You're going to get really sick. Tautological nightmare Sam I Am is trying to convince our protagonist - unnamed, like so many Dr. Seuss's Orwellian dystopia finds him once again subverting reality in his funhouse world. He's not being subtle about it either. It's wild that there are whole generations who think this is cute: courtesy of this woman who is undoubtedly super nice If your ham and eggs are green, they are rancid. Of course they are! That's what green means! They're made of poison now. You're going to get really sick. Tautological nightmare Sam I Am is trying to convince our protagonist - unnamed, like so many in Seuss's Kafkaesque universe - to eat rancid food. Understandably, our hero is reluctant. But Sam I Am won't quit. He uses increasingly brutal tactics to break our hero down. Here he is hitting him with a car. Soon Sam I Am will drive the car off a cliff into the ocean - a goat will be involved too, because why not - and here, near drowning, our hero is finally defeated. If this all sounds a little familiar, it's because it's exactly the ending of 1984. Seuss, one of our darkest and most anguished writers, has a fascination with psychological torture. His nihilistic masterpiece Fox in Socks presents a similar journey: a tormentor relentlessly brainwashes his hapless prey. It's A Clockwork Orange with rhyming: "I was cured alright." The tactic at work here is manipulation to make the insane seem sane. If you repeat something enough times, even if it's gibberish it starts to sound like there must be a reasonable argument for it or people wouldn't keep bringing it up. You use simple words, short sentences. Dr. Seuss's publisher bet him that he couldn't write a book using only 50 words. Green Eggs & Ham uses exactly 50 words. They form a lunatic vortex. Say! In the dark? Here, in the dark? Would you, could you, in the dark? Well, no, says our hero. That...that sounds crazy, right? I would not, could not eat green eggs and ham in the dark! Not in the rain! Not on a train! But - but maybe if the chaos would just stop for a moment, I could eat some. Would that...would that be the new normal? If you say "Fake news" enough times, some people will believe that too. It's hard to keep remember what normal used to be. Were there rules? Did anyone follow them? You have to step back, again and again, and re-center yourself. You do know what a sane world looks like. That food is green. It's made of poison. Don't let them break you.

Until recently only heard orally as passed down from the mouths of ancient sages (my mom and dad), I just picked up this tome and realized the eggs and the ham were green. SICK!

Ah, but then comes the twist! The torture victim submits, tries the colorful culinary conglomeration and finds that he actually DOES like it, and thus is freed from torment! I tell you, Green Eggs and Ham rivals "the greatest story ever told".

    I had to pick a childhood book for my 2016 Reading Challenge with the Machalo group, so this one wins. Why? I have it memorized. It was required reading for me according to my children so that they would go to sleep at night. Something about the repetitive wording would lull them off to dreamland.

    ‘Dr Seuss’ being the pen name under which Theodor Seuss Geisel wrote (taking his middle name and making full use of his Oxford University PhD in English literature) was the American born grandson of German immigrants to the US.

Never having the benefit of the books of Dr Seuss when I was a child, it was with great pleasure that I discovered his work many years later when reading them to my own children. For anyone who has not yet discovered Seuss’s classic children’s books – now is the time to do so! What Seuss has created using such imagination, with a particularly dynamic (both flamboyant but simple) and unique style of illustration, coupled with his verse rhythms and the use of repetitive but building and twisting phrases – all in an extremely and deliberately accessible way, is a series of works which are a fantastic visual and verbal feast, captivating both children and adults alike. For me the most memorable examples of Seuss’s work are: ‘The Cat in the Hat’ (along with its sequel ‘The Cat in the Hat Comes Back’) – For the wonderful creation of mischief that is the ‘Cat in the Hat’ ‘Fox in Socks’ – For the tremendously bizarre tongue-twisters ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ – For the ever building and dynamic nature of the verse. All of them of course have Seuss’s trademark fantastic illustrations and rhythmic verses throughout. It is that unique combination of: Attractive illustrations and exciting verse – both very dynamic, always moving always going somewhere new; both very strange, silly and bizarre – all in an extremely accessible, engaging and compelling (and let’s not forget educational) way – which creates Dr Seuss’s fantastically immersive world. A timeless world of the imagination, of amazing words, pictures, rhymes, stories, learning, but above all else – FUN Not just for children, but for the child in all of us.

    Roughly fifteen years ago, when I was just starting out in high school, nothing in the world was more subversive or thought-provoking for me than staying up late on the weekend and watching Saturday Night Live. Around the same time, I think during the final year or two of the Reagan administration (my memory is not so good), the Reverend Jesse Jackson made a cameo appearance on the Weekend Update segment.

Around the same time, I think during the final year or two of the Reagan administration (my memory is not so good), the Reverend Jesse Jackson made a cameo appearance on the Weekend Update segment. He read Green Eggs and Ham. No adlibbing, no extra jokes, nothing. He just read the book, completely straight. In his voice - with all the authority and suppressed rage of Jackson in his anti-Reagan prime - this book's subversive undercurrent stood out for all to see. "I do not like them, Sam I am!" became a cry for all the people the 1980's forgot about. Suddenly, a correlation was drawn in my head between a story I loved as a kid, and my teen angst-fueled growing fascination with "fight the power" comedy. Fifteen or more years later, this remains one of my favorite books of all time. I am sure Dr. Suess had a lot to do with me becoming the man I am today, but this book, in particular, is one I come back to over and over again. Shortly after George W. Bush was re-elected in 2004, I read it again, and for weeks I couldn't get the mantra out of my head, "I do not like them, SAM I AM." NC

    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, skeptical pal learns that one need not cling desperately to an old idea because ideas (like tastes in oddly colored foodstuffs) can change. But it's also a great example of what a child's reader should be.

    I have to read this twice before I was able to grasp the moral lessons that this children's story book wants to impart to readers. I'm very much aware that target audience for these story books of Dr. Seuss are kids. I can't stop myself on reading them because the colorful illustrations and story are not only enticing, but because all of his books has a hidden moral lesson in them which adult readers could really appreciate.

    I never appreciated Green Eggs and Ham when I was a kid. I mean, it was ok, and it was Dr. Seuss, but it is a book about green eggs and ham. When my niece and nephew were born, however, all that changed. I should say, when my very strong-willed, don't-take-no-for-an-answer, nag-the-grown-ups-until-they-break-down-sobbing niece and nephew were born, Green Eggs and Ham read like a completely different book to me.

As a kid I didn't think Green Eggs and Ham was anything special. As an adult, I don't think that there is any other book that speaks with a truer, more authentic voice than Green Eggs and Ham.

    On the surface, this seams to be a simple tale of learning to like things you never tried. but if you dig deeper, you find a much more sinister manifesto filled with mind control and evil world domination. Yes, I may be treading on thin ice but many have overlooked the subtext and true purpose of this microtome. Be cautious if you plan on reading this book. not many can remain the same once they have peered into a bucket of pure truth.

    Lots of fun. Loved all the different rhymes, they were cleverly written with how simple and catchy they were, the illustrations were great as well and perfectly depicted the absurdity of Sam-I-Am and No-name's back and forth about the green eggs and ham. Wish I'd read it as a child though, would have absolutely adored it then.

    One of my favourite children's books, so good I have my own copy. I read this to my children and Grandson, over and over, sometimes night after night as bed time reading. Marvellous messages make miraculous moments - there you see, I'm nowhere near as good!!

    I was confused at first to why use an unusual color for eggs and ham. The story clearly had a deeper meaning to it but I didn’t really grasp it. It didn’t matter though since I found the rhymes catchy and I couldn’t stop reciting them in my mind as I read the lines.

    “Try them, try them, and you may! Try them and you may, I say.” No hay mucho que decir... solo que estoy descubriendo que Dr. Seuss es el autor que debí empezar a leer cuando quise empezar a aprender inglés... es fácil y entretenido, imaginativo y didáctico, pero todo esto de una forma rara. “I will not eat them in a house, i will not eat them with a mouse,i will not eat them in a box i will not eat them with a fox, i will not eat them here of there i will not eat them anywhere, I do not like gree “Try them, try them, and you may!

Simplemente genial. Nota: Me estoy haciendo adicto a Dr. Seuss

    I can't tell if Green Eggs and Ham is a cautionary tale about advertising and aggressive sales professionals, or if it's about keeping an open mind about food (which would then be an easy synecdoche for any other culture). Both interpretations have merit and it would be easy to find supporting arguments for either. It is tempting to speculate that "clearly" Dr. Seuss meant for the book to be read in the latter context — but ol' Theodore was a crafty fellow and I certainly wouldn't put it past hi I can't tell if Green Eggs and Ham is a cautionary tale about advertising and aggressive sales professionals, or if it's about keeping an open mind about food (which would then be an easy synecdoche for any other culture).

It is tempting to speculate that "clearly" Dr. Seuss meant for the book to be read in the latter context — but ol' Theodore was a crafty fellow and I certainly wouldn't put it past him to have intended the cautionary read either. Interpretations of the text aside, you have to wonder what bad blood there is between our unnamed narrator and Sam I Am. After all, we open with him cursing Sam I Am by name before allowing the platter of succulent (if tainted-looking) green eggs and ham to become a proxy for his ill-will toward that persistent, diminutive foil. One imagines early drafts of Green Eggs and Ham reading more like "...I will not eat them here or there. I will not eat them ANYWHERE! I do not like Green Eggs and Ham and I DON'T LIKE YOU, SAM I AM!!!" before some over-zealous editor took his red pen to the page and asked Geisel to tone it down a little. What's their history, Sam I Am and our unnamed narrator? How far back does it go? What is the source of their rift? And how does one mere taste of green eggs and ham mend it? ------ SIDE NOTE: Hands down, this is Holden's favorite book. That means that we've read it to him a nearly obscene number of times. It also means that the "gently used" copy we bought has been taped and re-taped back together and will no doubt be replaced on or sometime shortly after H.'s first birthday. It might become an annual gift until he learns to not tear pages.

    I think I see where Dr. Seuss was headed with his books. Clearly he was a man of great culture. I mean think about it.

I'm glad to say I have none whatsoever save for getting rid of thoughts about Dr Seuss' books that currently amuse me! *Green Eggs and Ham **There's a Wocket in My Pocket! ***Oh, the Places You'll Go! ****How the Grinch Stole Christmas *****The Cat in the Hat ******Horton Hears a Who! *******Fox in Socks

    'Green Eggs and Ham' by Dr. Seuss is a delectable tongue twister of a story. The simple lexis is constantly repeated and turned on its' head to make for a fast paced, action packed rhythmic tale. The simple premise for the story is 'Sam I Am' trying to persuade or force his very unwilling friend to try green eggs and ham. Through this process the pair travel to different places and meet interesting characters.

Through this process the pair travel to different places and meet interesting characters. By the end of the story 'Sam I Am' manages to make his friend try the green eggs and ham and much to Sam's surprise he actually likes them! This story with its odd characters and acid coloured illustrations was written in 1960 and since being published has become a firm favourite. Teachers may dislike reading this book because it has to be read carefully and quickly in order to maintain the rhyming element and with expression to help the children understand the storyline. However it is a story I really enjoy reading to children because it is a challenge and when read correctly the euphonious words are a pleasure to articulate. One word of caution I would add though is the need to check children's understanding of the events, it is very easy to get carried away with the story particularly as it suits a fast reading pace, so I would advise asking questions about the story at the end. 'Green Eggs and Ham' is a useful story to use in the early years to encourage children to try different foods and could be extended with tasting unusual foods, making different coloured foods ie. blue biscuits using food colouring and mixing colours. The story is also a rich source of rhyming words which are simple to understand, children in key stage one could make lists of rhyming words taken from the story, they could then go on to make up their own poems using some of the words. They could also write about or draw their own favourite foods and explain where and how they would persuade a friend to try them. I have used a CD ROM version of the story that children can access for themselves, in this way children can read the story at their own pace and pause at particular parts that interest them. 'Green Eggs and Ham' is part of a range of rhyming stories including 'Fox in Socks' and The Cat in the Hat' that all encourage children's enjoyment of words. They are humourous stories that appeal to adults and children alike.

    I think this book and Seuss's Cat in the Hat are his two most famous books, and I'm pretty sure this is one (maybe the only one) I did read as a kid. For the adult reader (reading aloud to kids, no doubt), it's a repetitive, long, and obvious book: Sam offers some green eggs and ham to his grumpy older friend (who remains nameless), and this friend gets angrier and angrier the more Sam tries to convince him to try them (and you can't blame the angry one: green eggs and ham?

Sounds utterly disgusting, like they've gone off or something). Until finally he does try eating it, and discovers that he does like them after all. It's enlivened by the silliness of Sam's suggestions: would you eat them in a box with a fox, or in the dark, or with a goat. The wording does change, going through the various grammatical options: would you, could you, will not, could not, do not like etc. It's a surprisingly entertaining battle of wills and for as obvious as the message is, it's a message that all parents spend a great deal of time and energy getting across to their kids ("Try it! Just try it, how do you know you don't like it until you try it?!"), so it's always nice to have a popular book reinforce it.

    The best book of rhyming ever! Pretty sure Dr Seuss invented rhyming. The illustrations are like an acid trip, so always a good book to read to your kids. I've read this many times and it's my favourite kids book. EDIT: just read this two more times to my daughter. I've read quite a few Dr Seuss books lately and this is still easily my favourite. During this reading I realised how much my daughter is like the green eggs and ham hater in the book, getting her to try stuff is really difficult. Next The best book of rhyming ever!

    You have to live in a box not to know who Dr. Seuss is. Out of all of his books, this one has always been one of my favorites. On the top of my list, because of the pictures, and the lesson involved, it teaches a child to try something before automatically deciding whether or not he likes it. It also has trains in it, which I completely forgot, and which was a big win with my twin 3 yr olds. I also, love reading Dr. Seuss books, the flow of the rhymes just so much fun to say. Wonderful book.

    Acepto que este es mi libro favorito de Dr. Seuss, hizo que preparara huevos verdes sólo para poder recitarlo mientras los comía. Me encanta el uso del lenguaje de Seuss y el esfuerzo en la traducción porque no quita el ritmo y la gracia de este cortísimo cuento. Recomendado para todos los niños porque el cuento es gracioso y las imágenes hermosas. _____________________________________________________ Este libro es aún más gracioso en inglés.

    Oh that Sam I am always slogging those green eggs and ham around. And the way he insists! I suppose that after a train wreck into a boat with goats and foxes and lots of other onlookers – plus Sam on my ass, I’d probably try ’em too. But not sure I’d like ’em. Even in a box…

    I remember when my elementary school served green eggs and ham as homage to this book. I was utterly disgusted. I did not eat green eggs and ham, I did not eat them, Sam-I-Am.

    I have always much loved Green Eggs and Ham. Both Dr. Seuss' poetic, rhythmic text and his accompanying illustrations are entertaining and enchanting (a sweet delight, with movement, joy and exuberant silliness), and yet, the presented underlying message also shows a basic and important, necessary truth (to not simply and categorically insist that one does not enjoy a certain food, but to actually try it first, that one needs to at least taste a food before making a decision as to whether one li I have always much loved Green Eggs and Ham. Both Dr. Seuss' poetic, rhythmic text and his accompanying illustrations are entertaining and enchanting (a sweet delight, with movement, joy and exuberant silliness), and yet, the presented underlying message also shows a basic and important, necessary truth (to not simply and categorically insist that one does not enjoy a certain food, but to actually try it first, that one needs to at least taste a food before making a decision as to whether one likes it or not). That being said, I can also to a point appreciate that some individuals might consider Sam-I-Am massively annoying, bordering on the offensive, with his continuous insisting, basically hounding if not actually stalking the other nameless character until he finally gives up and resignedly tries Sam's green eggs and ham. Thus, while I personally do very much adore Green Eggs and Ham and cherish the message Dr. Seuss is trying to convey, I also do comprehend that for some, Sam-I-Am is at best tedious and a bit like a recurring mosquito annoyingly buzzing around one's ear. But actually, for my adult and educated self, for my teacher/instructor self, the genius of Green Eggs and Ham lies NOT so much in the message of the narrative, but in Dr. Seuss' poetic, repetitive text, a text that with fun and rhythm introduces children to important tenets of English grammar and word usage (different verb forms, prepositions and negation are prominently featured, and by repeating the author's words or by having them read aloud, children learn, children become accustomed to proper preposition usage, the differences between the future and the present tenses of verbs, modal verbs such as "can" and "should" and the position of the negative). A wonderful, marvellous combination of enjoyment and didactic intent, and highly recommended for both in-class and at home practice/use, and absolutely outstanding for ESL instruction (case in point, in grade four, after my family had immigrated from Germany to Canada, my homeroom teacher used Green Eggs and Ham with me and it definitely made learning English verbs and the many different prepositions much easier and also much more fun to both learn and remember). And not just for children either, as I have also used the Green Eggs and Ham as a fun introductory activity for novice adult ESL learners with lasting and successful results (with the caveat to NOT ONLY use material primarily meant and designated for children with adult learners, but that as a quick activity, Green Eggs and Ham is an enjoyable, teachable interlude).

    “Green Eggs and Ham” is another brilliant classic from the creative mind of Dr. Seuss and it is about how Sam-I-Am tries to convince a furry guy in a black top hat to try out green eggs and ham. “Green Eggs and Ham” is an excellent book for children of all ages, but the repeating verses can be a bit painful to read over and over again if you are not used to reading the same verses over and over again.

Dr. Seuss’ illustrations are colorful and hilarious as they show images of Sam-I-Am and the tall furry creature in the black top hat going on outrageous adventures such as riding a car into a tree and then having the car drive on top of a train, while the images follow the repeating verses that Sam-I-Am proposes different ways of eating the green eggs and ham. Also, the characters themselves are creatively drawn, especially of the images of Sam-I-Am wearing a yellow shirt and a red hat, indicating that he is laid back, while the tall creature, who is nameless, wears a black top hat and is furry, which indicates that he has a somewhat reluctance to accept anything different. Dr. Seuss’ story is highly creative and hilarious as it details how Sam-I-Am tries to get the tall furry creature to eat green eggs and ham in a humorous way and children will easily be drawn to the wackiness of this story. Some children and parents might be a little annoyed at the constant repeating verses that the furry creature with the black top hat makes each time Sam-I-Am mentions a new way to eat green eggs and ham such as eating on a train and then eating on a boat. Some children might be a little bored with the repeating verses as they might complain that they already heard what the tall furry creature is complaining, while parents might find it a bit of a hassle to read the same verses over and over again. “Green Eggs and Ham” is a wonderful book for children who are huge fans of Dr. Seuss and who want to read books about trying out new things in a creative way. I would recommend this book to children ages three and up since there is nothing inappropriate about this book and the verses are easy for small children to understand.

    I read somewhere that Green Eggs and Ham was written on a dare. Dr. Seuss was dared to write a story using 50 different words or less. Those 50 words have become one of the greatest books in our families library. When I was young, this was THE book I would bring home from school. Every Wed. for 2 months, I would check our Green Eggs and Ham. My mom called the school and asked them not to let me check it out anymore. Now, many years later, I still will pick it up and read it.
