Green Eggs and Matzoh Ball Soup
The National Education Association often celebrates "Read Across America" by encouraging adults to read to children. Of course, Green Eggs and Ham is one of the most popular Dr. Seuss books. And there's the dilemma. How can Jewish kids celebrate with Green Eggs and Ham? So, in honor of (and with apologies to the estate of Dr. Seuss) read a new ending for the story. It starts on page 54........
Will you ever see
They are not KOSHER,
So let me be!
I will not eat green eggs and ham.
I will not eat them, Sam-I-am.
But I'll eat green eggs with a biscuit.
Or I will try them with some brisket.
I'll eat green eggs in a box.
If you serve them with some lox.
And those green eggs are worth a try,
Scrambled up inside some matzoh brie!
And in a boat upon a river,
I'll eat green eggs with chopped liver!
So if you're a Jewish Dr. Seuss fan,
But troubled by green eggs and ham,
Let your friends in on the scoop:
Green eggs taste best with chicken soup.
