I remember when I was young. My mom and dad subscribed me to a book club where I would receive a Dr. Seuss book in the mail every month. They were those thin, matte hardcovers that everyone had, and I loved them. I still have them packed away somewhere, I think.
I loved them so much that whenever I had the opportunity, I would get my parents to rent Dr. Seuss cartoons from the video store and record them so I could keep them at home and watch them over and over again. I’ll never forget sitting in front of the TV watching Seusstoons while following along in the book version.
I loved the stories about Starbellied Sneeches and hopping on Pop. I adored One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, and I still remember all the wonderful places I went. But above all of them, I loved Green Eggs and Ham.
So when Random House contacted me about giving me a review copy of Green Eggs and Ham to promote its 50th Anniversary Edition and their related contests, I jumped at the chance.
