Living Books' adaptation of Green Eggs and Ham takes the
original story's charm one step further. Meticulously animated from hundreds of
sketches, it's filled with delightful new scenes, surprises and activities. As
with all Living Books, your child gets to direct the action with just a click
of the mouse.
Sam-I-Am's Find a Rhyme
Game. Match the object with the rhyme in time to help out our heroes near
the story's conclusion.
Makes a Word with a Fox in a Box. Aspiring rhymers
can create their own three word rhymes.
Color Match with a Mouse in a House is just one of
three delightful new activities that add to the Living Books experience. Level
1 too easy? Try Level 2 or 3.
An Activity Guide for parents and kids, as well as a
paperback edition of the original storybook, are included inside (not with
Jewel Case packaging).

Review by Rosemary Young
"It's a bundle of fun with beautifully drawn,
colourful characters and every spoken word is crystal clear. As the much loved
story progresses the animated characters go about their business and text
appears on screen with words or phrases highlighted as they are read."
"The second choice allows the players to turn
the pages themselves and it is in this mode where they are encouraged to click
on-screen and make things happen. The text can also be selected for a reading
on demand, or by selecting individual words they are read individually. Here a
child can make up silly sentences by choosing words randomly or there are a few
games incorporated into the play. One is a simple word game with the
opportunity to make words and more silly sentences, and there is also a rhyming
exercise where simple words appear randomly and the player must select a
rhyming object. The other game is of the concentration variety and has three
levels of game play to cater for the range of ages in the target age group. The
emphasis here is on matching colours as kitchen cupboards are opened to reveal
colourful delicacies such as Purple Pancakes and Green Eggs and Ham."
