Green Eggs and Ham is a classic story about a picky eater. The nameless main character refuses to try green eggs and ham. Throughout the book, his friend Sam-I-am keeps insisting that he’d like them. Sam suggests all different places to try this dish, but his friend keeps refusing. Finally to get Sam to be quiet, he agrees to try green eggs and ham. To his surprise, he likes them. He ends up thanking Sam for introducing him to such a yummy meal.

I do so like green eggs and ham!
Thank you!
Thank you, Sam-I-am.

Parents and toddlers alike can relate to this silly story. Most toddlers hate to try new foods, and parents are constantly trying to get them eat different things. This book with its rhyming verse is a great way to encourage kids to try new foods and new things. My son loves the bright goofy pictures and all of the ridiculous places to eat green eggs and ham. The simple rhyming repetitive wording is also great for beginning readers.
