A little Green Eggs and Ham please
Kiddy Lit Trivia Question:
What was the $50 bet between editor Bennett Cerf and Theodor Geisel --- aka Dr. Seuss -- that resulted in the children's classic Green Eggs and Ham?
Answer Tuesday evening
And, as promised, the answer is: According to 365 Amazing Trivia Facts Calendar, Cerf bet Geisel that he couldn't write a book using 50 words or less. Geisel won.
(With many teachers serving green eggs to students as an activity with this book.)
