I was hesitant to buy this book (that I love) because of so many negative reviews regarding paper quality. I actually removed it from my cart and then went to a book store to see the quality for myself. Yes, it is true that you can see some of the impressions of the previous page through the current page. However, I did not find it distracting in any way. I did not think it was a sign of poor paper quality. I thought the quality of the book felt as good as the one I had as a child. Because the images contain a lot of black lines and dark green ham :), I think it is inevitable that some of these lines will show through. Please, still consider buying this book. Please, still consider buying any/all Dr. Seuss books. I am so glad I bought this despite the reviews on paper quality. My husband read it before I wrapped it as a gift. He loved it and had no issues either! Check it out!
Amazon.com Review This timeless Dr. Seuss classic was first published in 1960, and has been delighting readers ever since. Sam-I-am is as persistent as a telemarketer, changing as many variables as possible in the hopes of convincing the nameless skeptic that green eggs and ham are a delicacy to be savored. He tries every manner of presentation with this "nouveau cuisine"–in a house, with a mouse, in a box, with a fox, with a goat, on a boat–to no avail. Then finally, finally the doubter caves under the tremendous pressure exerted by the tireless Sam-I-am. And guess what? Well, you probably know what happens, but even after reading Green Eggs and Ham the thousandth time, the climactic realization that green eggs and ham are "so good, so good, you see" is still a rush. As usual, kids will love Dr. Seuss’s wacky rhymes and whimsical illustrations–and this time, they might even be so moved as to finally take a taste of their broccoli. (Ages 4 to 8) –This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
Green Eggs and Ham Book & CD (Beginner Books Read-Along Book & Audio) Paperback – January 5, 2005 by Dr. Seuss (Author) Review
I purchased this book (as well as all of the other Dr. Seuss books) as soon as they became available for the Kindle. It helped that there was a great promotional price at the time but the real motivator was to have them for my, at that time, infant grandson to read. Fast forward a couple of years and I realized that while the Kindle version is great to have (especially when on-the-go), nothing really replaces having the actual book in hand for a toddler. My grandson is now almost three years old and can handle the delicate process of turning thin, paper pages. He loves to sit and read books to himself or to his baby sister. Because of this new realization, I have decided to pick up the books in this series in hardback format. Green Eggs and Ham is one of the wonderful books I remember from my own childhood and I love the book’s rhymes and illustrations. It was one of the Dr. Seuss books that I purchased and read to my children when they were young. We still have those old books but I gave them to my daughters when they moved away from home so they could keep an important piece of their childhood with them. I now get to have the opportunity to buy them again and enjoy reading them to a new generation. -Read Reviews-
We love, love, love, this lift-the-flap book. Green Eggs and Ham is a great story. Toddlers love lifting flaps. But this book is even better than that. Many of the flaps are constructed very cleverly so that the flap, when opened, connects with and changes the illustration on the page to further the story. It really is a fun book for both children and adults to read. I highly recommend it for kids ages 18m – 5y. My only complaint is that the book comes with a sheet of stickers, some of which are meant to be added to the last page. I wish that the last page just had the illustrations and that the stickers were just extra or not included at all. While we placed the stickers in their intended place, some of them have since been torn out so now the flaps are just empty. But, that is a small complaint that shouldn’t stop you from buying this great book.
