Green Eggs & Ham Breakfast, by Stephen Tafoya

SamIamThis year was our 4th Annual Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s Birthday. However, this was the FIRST year we incorporated technology (besides that magic stuff that turns our eggs GREEN!).

Before the program started, kids filed into our large meeting room, and OH! Every so often, the children would catch a glimpse of a rascally black and white cat prowling around the hallways and by windows. When all the kids and adults were seated, Amy, our Children’s Librarian, started with a Welcome song and message, and THEN…

THE CAT IN THE HAT came out to greet the children!

(AND got her tail stuck in the door. Luckily Amy was there to be a helper!)

The Cat in the Hat comes each year to read Green Eggs and Ham. And this year, the Cat in the Hat read it from the screen using the Green Eggs and Ham iPad app. This gave EVERYONE a good view of the story from the big screen!

After the story was over, everyone sang a silly song; just enough exercise to build up an appetite FOR:

GREEN EGGS & HAM! (and juice and orange slices)

It was a celebration everyone could sink their teeth into!
