I am Sam

Posted on Mar 28, 2013

My son Sam loves reading and he especially enjoys rhymes. Two years ago, when Sam was one, some American friends visited and said Sam should read Green Eggs & Ham by Dr Seuss. This book starts ‘I am Sam, I am Sam, Sam I am’. He loved it!

I didn’t grow up with Dr Seuss books but I’ve quickly grown extremely fond of them. We have loads – including two copies of some. It’s impossible to own too much Dr Seuss. Sam loves them and the amusing rhymes (luckily) stand up to being read ten times a day. The graphics are so joyful. They’re ideally suited to small children with clear lines and bold colours.

And what colours! What ridiculous fun!
