Green Eggs and Ham has got to be our favorite Dr. Seuss book! Here are some of my favorite Green Eggs and Ham activities and crafts found around the web! Use them on Dr. Seuss’ birthday, March 2nd, on Read Across America Day, or any day of the year.
What a fun book! The repetition, rhyming, word play, and moral of the story about trying new foods is awesome! I actually have this book memorized because I have read it so many times at bedtime and I happen to have picky eaters! So why not extend the story during the day with fun activities.
