The Hungry Librarian’s obsession with literary food can easily be traced back to when she was a very small girl. An avid consumer of children’s books even now, it occurred to her that the first big, formal tasting event should reach out to these newest readers and eaters. So she asked herself: “What’s the very first book food that most of us can recall?” the answer was “Why Green Eggs and Ham, of course!” She politely declined a friend’s alternate Seuss menu suggestion from “I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today” as being too hard to source the ingredients, too arduous to prepare, and likely too challenging for young palates!
So, readers, if you have children between the ages of roughly 2-7 years and are interested in bringing them to a Dr. Suess-themed brunch in Northern NJ, featuring green eggs and ham, along with other fanciful kid-friendly foods, please comment, or send me an email. After I have a few interested participants, we can set up a date between October 23 and November 21 that’s convenient for all attendees. This is a reminder that ABSOLUTELY no payment is expected . Please just bring your family’s copy of the book as there will be a read-along and some silly Seussical games. Also, if you’re uncomfortable with having your child’s photo published online, please just let me know – it’s no problem to accomodate that wish.
I sincerely hope to see you and your children there!
