Green Eggs and Ham Craft for kids

“Green Eggs and Ham” “was first published in 1960 and has since become one of the most popular and beloved children’s books of all times.

The story follows the character Sam-I-Am as he tries to convince a skeptical creature to try green eggs and ham in various locations and situations.

The book is known for its simple and repetitive rhyming text, whimsical illustrations, and its message about trying new things and being open minded.

I have read this book so many times to my picky eater.

While he loved the story, unfortunately say he hasn’t changed his attitude towards food. At least not yet.
