What is Green Eggs and Ham about?
“Do you like green eggs and ham?” asks Sam-I-am in this Beginner Book by Dr. Seuss. In a house or with a mouse? In a boat or with a goat? On a train or in a tree? Sam keeps asking persistently. With unmistakable characters and signature rhymes, Dr. Seuss’s beloved favorite has cemented its place as a children’s classic. In this most famous of cumulative tales, the list of places to enjoy green eggs and ham, and friends to enjoy them with, gets longer and longer. Follow Sam-I-am as he insists that this unusual treat is indeed a delectable snack to be savored everywhere and in every way.
Why Green Eggs and Ham in Polish is recommended for Polish and bilingual children?
Children learning Polish as a second language in UK and other countries are often keen to read English but reading in Polish can be very difficult for them.
Polish and bilingual children in England know this story from the English school or library, which is why we recommend it to encourage kids to read in Polish.
Reading this books together with a bilingual child is a great opportunity to meet Green Eggs and Ham and other characters in another language, compare the Polish translation with the English original, talk about language differences, as well as great fun and a lot of laughter.
