green eggs and ham.
I do not like them,
With unmistakable characters and signature rhymes, Dr. Seuss’s beloved favorite has cemented its place as a children’s classic.

Beginner Books are fun, funny, and easy to read. Originally created by Dr. Seuss himself, these unjacketed hardcover early readers encourage children to read all on their own, using simple words and illustrations. Smaller than the classic large format Seuss picture books like How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and Happy Birthday to You!, these portable packages are perfect for practicing readers ages 3-7, and lucky parents too!

You can't beat Seuss, but you can add Shel Silverstein & Graeme Base to your collection too!
Hardback slick surface makes it easy to wipe clean.

Beginning readers love this book for it's simple words fun story, and silly (but sneakily educational) simplistic didactic rhythm of the poem, which helps young readers to learn and remember (ask yourself why you still remember the words to this book after so many years!). Additionally, it enforces the lesson to TRY something, even if it looks weird, you may like them! You cannot say you don't like something until you have tried it!
As an educator and parent, I can attest to the value of using these books for lessons with phonics. Once they learn the pattern (consonant-vowel-consonant), they form their own words. For example: 'can' is the basis for 'man'; 'pan'; 'fan', etc. This is education at its best; enjoyable and fun for both you and your child.
The hardback, shiny cover is both durable and eye-catching. The pages are of sufficient weight paper that they will not tear easily. Little hands will be able to hold it, as it is lightweight. The print is quite large; big enough for little fingers to trace words or letters.
I must share a personal note here. A group of friends and I decided to give copies of our own children's best-loved books to one anothers' newly-born grandchildren. One of my sons stopped by yesterday as I was wrapping three of the favorites. He actually picked up and read this book. The smile on his face as he turned the pages was priceless.

Despite my comments above, this is a terrific toy and beautifully made. I recommend it.
At 7 months we've been reading for a while now and although he cant understand the story yet, my baby boy has been absolutely facinated since an early stage with looking at the bright colourful pages and watching me read.
Great addition to any library and for all ages to enjoy.
