This has always been a favorite of mine since I was a child, and it continues to be as I read it with my boys. The really fun thing is seeing my oldest (he is only in kindergarten) as he tries to read it to his little brother before bed. The rhymes are really something else. They are so fun and silly. We have loved this book during the St. Patrick’s Day holiday with the green eggs but just as well as every other day of the year. We often bring up this story at meal times as well. When our boys don’t want to try a new dish, we will quote this story and it brings a smile to their face and a brave bone in their body to help them give it a try.

Green Eggs and Ham: the classic that every parent of a picky eater needs in their arsenal. It’s silly, it’s fun, it rhymes, and it’s a great way to remind your kids that if they just give something new a try, they might actually like it.
