Did you know the book Green Eggs and Ham was the result of a bet between Dr. Seuss and his publisher? Dr. Seuss was bet that he couldn’t write a book using only 50 words. Even though this classic book was published almost 60 years ago, it is still favorite today.
Personally, I wouldn’t make a word bet against the masterful Dr. Seuss! The publisher lost this bet and Green Eggs and Ham was published.
Green Eggs and Ham Activities
Green Eggs and Ham was one of the earliest books I remember as a child and is still a favorite to read to my own kids. I can remember my mom making green eggs and ham when I was a kid. You can do it too, just add a few drops of food coloring to your scrambled eggs!
I loved this book because my children were able to read this book quickly after they learned how to read.
To help your children read the book on their own we’ve created a word list you can download for them to practice.
This is a great way to work on reading with your kids since there are very few sight words in this book. Use this list to review the words with your child then let them read the book to you!
