    You can't talk about children's books without Dr. Seuss. He was brilliant. "Green Eggs and Ham" was his answer to a bet. He wrote a book with a few dozen words, all but one of which are monosyllabic. Sam-I-Am is forever optimistic. I remain as optimistic as he and think my children will try new foods having learned that lesson from Sam. Alas, they eat no green food. Do you know the polysyllabic word in "Green Eggs and Ham"?

    Dr. Seuss is brilliant, but that's not telling anyone anything new. His books are perfect for reading aloud and helping young ones learn to read! There is a compilation of his sketches and notes on manuscripts that I saw once, but haven't found again..if anyone knows, I'd be grateful!

    Even after reading this book I don't know how many times, my daughter still loves it. I, on the other hand, have been known to skip large chunks of the repetitive text on occasion. The good news is that she does understand the value of trying things she thinks she might not like. Did this book help? Perhaps.

    Nothing is more cute than hearing my 2-yr-old "read" this book to me.

    Introduce a new generation to "Sam I Am"...or just read it yourself and feel like a kid again.
