Green Eggs and Ham by Dr.Seuss
Dr. Seuss, pseudonym of Theodor Seuss Geisel, (born March 2, 1904, Springfield, Massachusetts, U.S.—died September 24, 1991, La Jolla, California), American popular writer and illustrator of immensely children’s books, which were noted for their nonsense words, playful rhymes, and unusual creatures.
Dr. Seuss earned a bachelor’s degree from Dartmouth College in 1925 and did some postgraduate studies in literature at Lincoln College, Oxford, and at the Sorbonne, but he did not earn a doctorate.
Geisel was the first to use the pseudonym Dr. Seuss in a cartoon published in the July 1927 issue of The Saturday Evening Post. He was not a doctor who meant a doctor who treated patients, but he used that title to mean a doctor who prescribes the fun of reading to young students.
The biggest feature is the use of lime. In some cases, the titles such as 'There's a wocket in my pocket' and 'The cat in the hat' rhyme, and the words that rhyme constantly appear throughout the reading. It's like reading a poem or listening to a Rap music.
I heard his name a lot because he was a writer who was loved a lot by Americans, and the school celebrates Dr. Seuss Day by making it.
My daughter also borrowed Dr. Seuss' books from the school library. And She reads it out loud every day. It is written in rhymes, so even children who can't read or write well can easily follow along.
Two characters appear, one recommending a green egg and ham, and the other refusing to dislike and keep running. green egg? and ham? Just thinking about it makes me lose my appetite. He says he doesn't want to eat, but he insists on following him to eat. In the end, I took a bite of food that seemed to be tasteless because it was 'green', but somehow it wasn't so delicious. Lime is also a genius, and he teaches a lesson in breaking his prejudices.
Many children have borrowed this book from the library, so there are a lot of hand stains here and there.
It's fun to imagine how many children would have read this book aloud.
I am a person who draws, so I am more interested in pictures or illustrations than in the contents of this book.
In particular, I think the scene that follows the cave into the cave is the best example of the hatching technique. He was good at sketching as if he dynamically entered the cave and ran on the wind.
Dr. Seuss was a pioneer in children's literature and the best-selling picture book author of all time. Dr. Seuss has published more than 60 children's books, drawn and illustrated by Dr. Seuss.
From an early age, he liked to draw unusual shapes of people and animals, and he liked to give them funny names. Ted would often go to the zoo with his father, and each time he would take pencil and paper and sketch things he had seen.
For a child, sketching is a kind of fun play. Kids are ready to draw anytime, anywhere. My child saw a picture of a guinea pig I drew a while ago and asked how to draw a guinea pig easily. I just showed her how to follow along. My 5-year-old daughter worked hard to follow along. At this age, it is not easy to see and follow the exact shape. That's why we need to simplify the complex picture and show it. A child drew such a picture
