Calling all Dr. Seuss fans! If you’ve grown up loving and reading every Dr. Seuss book, you’re part of the Dr. Seuss club. And seriously, who doesn’t love Dr. Seuss stories?

Dr. Seuss Green Eggs and Ham Deviled Eggs

Before diving into this delicious Dr. Seuss Green Eggs and Ham Deviled Eggs recipe, let’s talk a little bit about the importance of reading and the impact it can have on families.

Why is reading so important?

Reading is the building block to all other forms of learning.There is something to be said about watching the confidence in your child shoot up almost overnight once they learn how to read and understand what they’re reading. I can still remember the moment that my kiddos learned to read; seeing that look on their face that the words were “clicking” is one moment that I’ll cherish forever.

Not only does reading help a child develop, but it also helps them learn how to sound out and spell as well. There are so many advantages of reading that benefits everyone!

Who was Dr. Seuss?

While “Dr. Seuss” was just his pen name, the real name behind the beloved author is Theodor Seuss Geisel. He published his first book “And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street” in 1937. Hard to believe that he then went on to write 60 books that will be loved for many generations to come!

Some of our favorite Dr. Seuss books are “Green Eggs and Ham,” “1 Fish, 2 Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish,” and “Cat In The Hat.” Another one to check out that is really funny is a book called “Wacky Wednesday”. It’s the perfect book to read during a not so typical day and is certain to bring smiles and giggles as well!

Celebrating Dr. Seuss is always fun for us because we use it as a way to combine reading and fun food. Did you know that combining reading with a fun treat actually isn’t all that hard to do? There are so many great food themes that you can draw from movies and books that it’s a really fun family tradition to start.

Making memories with the family isn’t hard. Family fun cooking traditions are so easy to start. This is exactly what we’re doing with this Dr. Seuss Green Eggs and Ham Deviled Eggs!

Then, once the book is done, we’ll head to the kitchen and make these delicious deviled eggs!

Not only do we do this with Dr. Seuss books, but we also make movie themed treats as well!
