Before I parted with them I decided to take themn out and read them. What amazes me is how great they are for a child starting to read.
You may not know that 'Happy Birthday' according to the Guinness Book of Records is the most sung song in the world. You may wonder why. Well, for one thing Happy Birthday contains 16 words, of which only two are not repeated many times. In fact there are only six unique words. Part of the ease of understanding comes with repetition.
Green Eggs and Ham has about 60 unique words and 500 to 600 words overall, very cleverly done, and outstanding for a child learning to read, with entertaining color illustrations on each page, great rhyme, repetition and variation and parallel structure, even reversal.
Here is an example with parallel structure and rhyme:
So I will eat them in a box
And " " " " with a fox.
" " " " " in a house.
" " " " " with a mouse.
" " " " " here and there.
" " " " " anywhere.
Say! I will eat them ANYWHERE.
Now see if you can sing these words to the tune of Happy Birthday. I think you will find the meter is similar. I think it's quite ingenious. And I think Green Eggs and Ham will encourage a child to try new things.
And a reversal pattern:
I am Sam. Sam I am.
Hop on Pop is a great first book for a child to make rhyme associations through, very entertaining and for a beginner.
Fox in Socks is full of tongue twisters.Read more ›
Hence, it was a pleasant surprise to see my 5 yr old get enamoured by the packaging and then by the book collection itself. Based on my wife's feedback, she has kept up her readings and in the process, picked up new words, pronunciations as well as enjoyed the story lines.
I would highly recommend this product.
