Green Eggs And Halal Ham

“Would you eat them with your mother? Would you eat them with your brother?” was the question today after we read the book Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss.

The boys were in for a nice surprise as we secretly made green eggs and halal (halal- food that is killed according to Islamic dietary laws–kind of similar to kosher. In short food that is blessed) turkey ham for a real life re-enactment.

The boys love the story and we read it with such excitement, they really get into it every time.

After we finished reading the story we asked them would they eat green eggs and ham? They all replied that they would. So we put them to the test LOL

“Eat them eat them, here they are” and we presented them with a bowl of green eggs and turkey ham.

They rushed off to get their spoons and each tried it, let’s just say two out of three enjoyed it, while all of them tried it, the youngest one ate the most of it ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s fun to make the books come to life and the children remember each time we read a story if we did something outside of the book that isย relate able.

Every time they read the book green eggs and ham they will never forget the time they tried to eat it.


We even drew scenes from the story after we finished ๐Ÿ™‚
