We all know the story of the green eggs and ham. But if you don't (you better) here's the gist of it.

Sam eats eggs and ham for breakfast every day. But his friend wants him to eat eggs and ham that are dyed green. Sam isn't happy with this new suggestion and he tells his friend all of the ways he WONT eat green eggs and ham. Then, at the very end, he eats green eggs and ham and realizes that they taste just the same (or better) than his regular eggs and ham.

You know, this is a childrens book. But I think it has a really nice hidden message. You've heard the phrase "don't judge a book by it's cover" right? Well this applies the same concept. Don't judge things based on how they look. Don't judge people based on how they look. It's not about looks. It's about who they are as a person, or food-wise, what it tastes like.

Dr. Suess was a pretty wise man. He disguised a life-lesson in a book about food. Praise Dr. Seuss.

Now, go and eat some green eggs and ham. Because that's what I'm going to do.

I give this book a 9 out of 10 stars.
