Dr. Seuss – Book Give Away

Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham was one of my favorite books when I was child. I remember asking my mother to read it over and over at bedtime. I also remember her being happy when I learned to read and I could read it over and over on my own. Oh the memories of childhood.


I’m not surprised that this book is still a childhood favorite after 49 years. I am amazed that this book consists of only 50 words and was written on a bet. After Dr. Seuss wrote the Cat In The Hat using only 225 words, his publisher wagered $50 that Dr. Seuss could not write a book using only fifty words. He accepted the challenged and thus we have Green Eggs and Ham.


The Cat In the Hat was also one of my favorite childhood books. The Cat In The Hat turned 50 in 2007. This book has sold over 10.5 million copies and has been published in more than 20 languages. I read both of these books to my grandson this week-end. Green Eggs and Ham was his favorite. He handed the book to me over and over. I’ll be adding both to his library, which I started for him at birth.

Thanks to my friends at Random House, Giggles & Sugar Kisses is giving away a set of Dr. Seuss Books to one of our readers. The set includes:

  • Green Eggs & Ham
  • The Cat In The Hat
  • Happy Birthday Baby
