Green Eggs and Ham Nifty-Lift-and-Look Board and Sticker Book by Dr. Seuss is a delightful book to teach infants and toddlers to try new foods. Dr. Seuss teaches kids this important life lesson in a lift-the-flap book. The interactive book’s rhymes and whimsical characters are a wonderful way to capture the infant and toddler attention.
Young children are picky eaters. It is a chore to introduce new foods to them. Vegetables and fruits are the hardest to add to their daily diet. It is important for kids to eat vegetables and fruits instead of sugary and salty snacks.
In Green Eggs and Ham Nifty-Lift-and-Look Board Book, Sam-I-am asks, “Do you like green eggs and ham?” The character, No-Name, replies, “I do not like green eggs and ham.” No-Name, like a child, puts his nose and hand in the air to ward off the foods. He defiantly refuses to eat the new foods.
There is something so fanciful about this book and the very idea about eating green eggs. Kids love it, they love the book and want to hear it over and over and over again until the book is totally worn out and then you need to go buy a new one.
It is the book you will find that they tuck it under their pillow so it is available for a good night story, or they drag it out the the car so it's there for them to look at while sitting in their booster seat and waiting to pick up a sibling.
