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.
Sam-I-am tries to entice the picky eater to try the new foods. He uses rhyming situations to get the stubborn No-Name to eat a tiny bite. Would No-Name try them in the rain on a train? Would he try them in a box with a fox? Would he try them with a mouse in a house?
Dr. Seuss gives a life lesson to parents trying to introduce new foods to young children, also. Just keep trying! Sam-I-am does not quit. He keeps trying. No-Name tries finally the green eggs and ham. Guess what happens? No-Name likes the food.
He will eat it in the rain on a train. No-Name will eat the food in a box with a fox. He is willing to eat the food with a mouse in a house.
Green Eggs and Ham (Nifty-Lift-and-Look) Board and Sticker Book works on two levels. Children should try the healthy foods offered by parents. Parents should not quit offering new foods to children. A note to parents who are afraid of this method, Sam-I-am and No-name end the book the best of friends.
