John Maytham delights with Green Eggs and Ham on World #ReadAloud Day

Written by: Barbara Friedman

Every year World Read Aloud Day calls global attention to the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories.

John Maytham says Green Eggs and Ham was the book his two children demanded he read and re-read over and over...and over again when they were little.

The children's book by Dr Seuss first published in 1960 is believed to be the fourth best-selling English-language children's book of all time.

Celebrate World Read Aloud day.

Read Aloud. Change the World.

Take a listen below to John's delightful reading of this all time favourite. And play it to your kids if you don't feel like doing it yourself:
