First Book I Read By Myself.

Was Green Eggs and Ham.

I woke mom and dad up at 4am to show them, to read the whole thing out loud to them.

Having heard a lot of kids stumble their way through oral reading, I can only imagine my parents’ enormous sense of pride, shading through astonishment, wonderment and down into “Boat, kid. The word is boat. You know this!” as I stuttered along.

I think probably about 40% of North American kids read a Seuss book as their first.  For that, I hope Theodor Geisel is drinking beer and eating chocolate brownies in heaven.
