Green Eggs and Ham is a classic Dr. Seuss beginner books published in 1960. Did you know 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.

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 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!

We’ve created a word list for all the words used in Green Eggs and Ham.
