Green Eggs & Ham

Did you know that it was fifty years ago that one of the most beloved and well-read children’s books first asked the enduring question: “Do you like green eggs and ham?” This Seuss classic was a result of a wager between the author and his editor at Random House. Could he use 50 words, write an intelligent, entertaining children’s book? He did and won $50, one dollar for each word. We have this book in our collection which according to Publishers Weekly is the fourth-bestselling English language children’s book of all time.
