Green Eggs and Ham
Transcript of Green Eggs and Ham
By Dr. Seuss
Original Publication Date: August 12, 1960
Green Eggs and Ham is about Sam-I-Am, who is trying to convince the other character to try green eggs and ham. He spends the majority of the book offering another character different locations and dining partners to try the food. In the end, the other character reluctantly decides to eat the green eggs and ham and ends up loving the food.
Green Eggs and Ham teaches kids many valuable life lessons, such as:
Children can learn that they shouldn't decide they don't like something if they haven't tried it. They should be willing to try new things because they might just end up liking it.
They can also learn that peer pressure isn't always a bad thing- sometimes positive peer pressure can be used to influence a friend to do something good.
Because the characters were created by the author and aren't human, they don't have any set ethnicity, social class, race, or culture. Therefore, ethnicity does not play a role in Green Eggs and Ham.
The author's messages can definitely be applied to every day life.
being willing to try new things can broaden your horizons and allow you to realize you might like something new.
positive peer pressure provides encouragement that can be used for something good.
Green Eggs and Ham includes a few other sociological concepts. For the characters, eating green eggs and ham was against the norm, so the character was wary about trying the food since there weren't any set expectations that he could base it off of.
Another concept is social stratification, which was that the character was depicted as being older than Sam-I-Am, and he could of thought that he was above Sam-I-Am and he didn't want to do anything associated with him.

In the book, the characters are portrayed as males, and it could be relating to the fact that males could be portrayed as persistent and they don't take no for an answer.
