Pulitzer Prize–winning Dr. Seuss’s classic Beginner Book is now part of a book and audio CD package, with word-for-word storytelling by Jason Alexander.
Sam-I-Am is persistent in his hope of convincing the nameless skeptic that green eggs and ham are a delicacy to be savored everywhere and in every way. He tries all manners of presentation—in a house, with a mouse, in a box, with a fox, on a boat, with a goat. In this most famous of cumulative rhyming tales, the list of places to enjoy green eggs and ham, and friends to enjoy them with, gets longer and longer. When the doubter finally does eat the green eggs and ham, he loves them, making this book a perfect pick for picky eaters.
Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meanings.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I fell in love with this book the first time that I read it. I love the way that it rhymes. And I especially love the basis of the story which is to try new things sometimes.
Genre: This book is a good example of fantasy. The characters in the book (dog-like) wouldn't have human characteristics or go on all of the adventures that they did.Style: 5 starsAge: Primary
