NEA’s Read Across America Day, NEA’s national reading celebration takes place each year on or near March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books, and you can too! To help celebrate his birthday I am sharing reviews of many of his books. I hope you all enjoy them and take time on March 2 to help celebrate by reading to your loved ones.
Dr. Seuss Green Eggs & Ham 5 Star Review
Reviewed by Zachary Age 3
I liked the pictures. Mr. Knox doesn’t like green eggs and ham to start but at the end he does. It was a fun book. It is my favorite.
Reviewed by Marshall & parent Age 5
Oh we loved this book. Marshall loved how all the words rhymed and how the eggs were green. He said he has never ate ham for breakfast but will try it.

It makes me laugh!
Reviewed by Noele & parent Age 6
We love reading books that rhyme. Green Eggs and Ham has lots of words that rhyme and very silly pictures! I tried green eggs and ham at preschool and I loved them just like Sam did!
Reviewed by Jacob Age 6
I liked how Mr. Knox (the mean guy) liked green eggs and ham at the end. My favorite part is when Sam I Am asks “Would you like them in a house? Would you like them with a mouse?” I would like to meet Sam I Am and Mr. Knox.
Reviewed by Garrett & parent Age 3
I like the rhyming and the funny pictures. The cat is funny and says what I say “I DON’T LIKE THAT”. As a parent, I like that he tries it in the end and likes it as that has been influential to Garrett. Really holds a 3 year olds attention.

Sam was trying to get someone to eat green eggs & ham, with a mouse, a fox and other places. He finally tried them and liked them. It was funny.

I liked everyone kept putting more apples on their head. Then a bear tried to knock the apples off of their heads. Then they all crashed into a big cart and all of the apples went flying everywhere. After the crash everyone put ten apples on their head including the bear.
