Green Eggs and Ham by Doctor Seuss – Every generation falls in love with Dr. Seuss’s whimsical characters and rhyming style. Seuss is at his best telling a story in which on character refuses to try green eggs and ham.

The unnamed character is much like a toddler who declares over and over again that he doesn’t like something. Finally Sam gets him to try the green eggs and ham and the character declares he likes it. I find this story a useful tool when encouraging my daughter to try new foods.
