Eggs & Ham”
Sam-I-Am tries to convince another Seuss character to eat a plate of green eggs and ham. In the end, the unnamed character tries the dish, and ends up loving the food!
the Places You’ll Go!”
All journeys face perils, whether from indecision, from loneliness, or worst of all, from too much waiting. Seuss’ message is simple but never sappy: life may be a ‘Great Balancing Act,’ but through it all ‘There’s fun to be done.’
Cat in the Hat”
What to do on a rainy day? Two children sit and stare out the window, when suddenly a giant cat wearing a tall striped hat pops into their lives. With tons of wild rhyming that is classic Seussical goodness, the kids watch helplessly as havoc is wrecked upon their home by all sorts of things the cat produces, including Thing One and Thing Two.
