Theodor Seuss Geisel claimed travelling fuelled his creativity, his wife and himself did not have children, nor kept regular office hours. Dr. Seuss embodied the attitude of being curious about the world around you. Having written over 46 children’s books, Green Eggs and Ham was first published on August 12th, 1960, becoming the fourth best selling English language children’s hardcover book of all time. Green Eggs and Ham captures the phrase, “Don’t knock it until you try it”, as you find out Sam does actually quite enjoy green eggs and ham, after strongly stating otherwise. The penmanship of Dr Seuss reminds us that knowledge is power and that books can transport you. Green Eggs and Ham, along with all of Dr. Seuss’ work, is evidence that nonsense can wake up the brain cells.
