Green Eggs and Ham – Dr. Seuss

UGNN eBooks for Kids

“Would you eat them in a box? Would you eat them with a fox?”
      This timeless Dr. Seuss classic has been delighting readers since 1960. Sam-I-am never gives up trying to convince his friend that green eggs and ham are a tasty treat. He tries everything – in a house, with a mouse, in a box, with a fox, with a goat, on a boat – to no avail. Then finally, finally his friend caves in… and tries them. And guess what? “I do so like Green Eggs and Ham!” Kids will love Dr. Seuss’s wacky rhymes and whimsical illustrations. And who knows, now they may even be willing to taste their broccoli.
