We’re doing a bit of a throwback this month on the traveling blog.
I ask: What was your favorite childhood book and why? (Is it still on your bookshelf?)
I have a few books from my childhood (and yes, they’re still on my bookshelf, LOL!). The first one that came to mind for this question, though, was Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. Oh yeah, I loved that one! I’d read it and re-read it and re-read it.
“I do not like them, Sam-I-am, I do not like green eggs and ham!”
Okay, so Dr. Suess is just plain cool, but why did I favor this one???
Because Sam-I-am believed in what he knew and he persisted with gentle confidence. All right, so he practically beat his friend over the head until he tried green eggs and ham, but really, he just never. Gave. Up. And guess what? He was right. His friend really did like green eggs and ham. He just had to be flexible enough to try it. And Sam-I-am was patient enough to wait til his friend came around.
I would not, could not, in a box. I could not, would not, with a fox. I will not eat them with a mouse. I will not eat them in a house. I will not eat them here or there. I will not eat them anywhere. I do not eat green eggs and ham. I do not like them, Sam-I-am.
Alrighty, folks. What’s your favorite book from childhood and why?
