Green Eggs and Ham - Dr. Seuss I have to give it 5 stars because this is a lifetime favorite. It was the first book I read as a child when I learned how to read on my own. It's special at the same time because my father taught me how to read at the age of four, because I wanted to read this book so badly by myself without much help.Even at the age of twenty-six now, I still adore this book and will always cherish it.I can even recite it from memory, and have a Green Eggs and Ham t-shirt. haha!
