Nat I Am and Green Eggs and Ham!

Slice of Life Story Challenge
Slice 2 of 31

A special thing just happened one day.

Oh why and how is it special  you say?

Because Nat I am pretend read Green Eggs and Ham!

In honor of Dr. Seuss's Birthday (which by the way is today),
I bought new copies of Green Eggs and Ham and One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.

We've read them here and read them there.

We've read them almost anywhere.

We've read in the house with a little toy mouse.

We've read in the car when traveling far.

We've tried it, tried it and we say...

Our little reader is on her way!

She picked up the book called Green Eggs and Ham and she took on the voice of Sam I Am!

Pretending to read the words in the book, memorizing the pages by how they look.

It was so sweet and innocent, so lovely to hear,

It made me grin from ear to ear!

In honor of authors like Theo and readers like Nat

I salute and celebrate the Cat in the Hat!

Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for hosting the 7th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge.

          In the words of Dr. Seuss, "Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.”


  1. I'm grinning from ear to ear after reading your terrific poem, Amy. Hooray for Nat reading the pictures of Dr. Seuss (and more, I'm sure). Enjoy your Sunday!

  2. I absolutely love your poem. I am a huge Dr. Seuss fan in fact my first e-mail address was I don't know I didn't choose The Lorax, it would have been far easier to type every time I needed to log in.

  3. FAB-YOU-LOUS! This is so cute and the perfect entry for today! And congrats on your budding reader!

  4. I love this! I still have our copy of One Fish with its tattered pages and worn cover. That was one of my daughter's early favorites! My how his books have inspired so many readers and writers!

  5. Love hearing about Nattie, Amy. She's growing up! Thanks for the big smile this morning-so clever and funny!

  6. Oh, what fun! Congratulations, Nattie!

  7. What a beautiful rhyme... you had me smiling the whole time.

  8. Wonderful! Can't wait to read more.

  9. I love Dr. Seuss and I love your rhyme! Green Eggs and Ham is my absolutely favorite! So fun to watch a new little reader cut her reading teeth on this book!


I love hearing from you! Please add your comments and let's have a conversation!
