Alex's pick of the week - Green Eggs And Ham

A blog I frequent, Felafel and The Bee (I mentioned my blogger friend Michelle in yesterday's post), does a weekly post called ‘On Our Shelves Sunday’ where she talks about the books her children are currently reading and what they like about them.  I like this little 'series' - I like it a lot!  And so I'm doing something similar....

I'll give you the low-down on things we're reading this week - it's most likely to be something Alex is enthused about, but could be something I've enjoyed too :)  Whatever has been our favourite in the past week.  I'd love to hear about what you're reading too, so feel free to leave me a comment.  I'm linking this post back to Michelle's 'On Our Shelves Sunday' post - if you like the idea, please check hers out too.

Alex has a few consistent favourite books that he asks for over and over – and one of those is the Dr Seuss classic, Green Eggs And Ham….  so this is the one we're starting with this week!

This is basically the story of Sam I Am badgering his friend to try something new, even though his friend insists he won’t like it.... I hate to spoil the ending, but of course he eventually tries it and loves it in the end!  Alex’s favourite thing about this story are all the wacky places that Sam I Am suggests he might like to try green eggs and ham (in a box, with a fox, on a train, in the rain, here or there, anywhere!) I love reading him this one as I am always guaranteed lots of giggles, and what can be better than that? ;)
