The Greatest American Philosopher May 12, 2008
As a mom of a 24 and an 8 year old (I know . . . big surprise) I am firmly of the opinion that Dr. Seuss is the greatest American philosopher! In this book he urges us to try things that we may be afraid of or even repelled by. Many folks think this book applies only to food but I think he is urging us to be more brave in all avenues of life. We need to listen to those around us urging us expand our horizons. I believe that if we go for it and 'take a bite of the egg and ham' then we too will say "Thank you, thank you Sam-I-am."
Fun for kids and adults! May 12, 2008
I forgot how much I loved this book until I began reading it for my 3-year-old. She loves it, and I love reading it to her (unlike the ELMO books which our daughter loves and I dread). You really can't go wrong with Dr. Seuss. The illustrations are imaginative and the writing is really a work of genius in children's literature. I can't recommend this highly enough.
I do like Green Eggs and Ham May 10, 2008
Being the cruel and heartless person that I am, it was been years since I have bothered to so much think about this book. But, it being the week of the celebration of Dr. Seuss I have been reading various Suessian books to them. I forgot what a fun tongue-twister of a tale this was! My kids were able to repeat entire sections of the book with me and the illustrations are entirely animated without moving. Awesome book.
Green Eggs and Ham May 10, 2008
This is such a fun book. Who doesn't love Dr. Suess's Green Eggs and Ham? Great rhmes, a lot of sight words and a lesson about trying things before you decide how you feel about them.
A powerful aid for anyone struggling with Cartesian method. Apr 27, 2008
This work, I find, is most easily read as a very simple allegory; Sam-I-Am is, of course, René Descartes (his name is a clever clue to this fact; a clear reference to Descartes' famous "I think, therefore I am" statement, which we can extend upon this reading to "I think, therefore I am Sam!"), while the unnamed character represents the millions of unnamed target readers of Descartes' "Discourse on the Method". The first rule of Cartesian method--that we cannot accept anything as true that we do not know for certain--is the work's primary focus; the unnamed character accepts his dislike for green eggs and ham as truth, despite the fact that he does not know this for certain. In accordance with Descartes' first rule, Sam-I-Am knows the unnamed character must try green eggs and ham before he can take such assumptions as truth. However, the book also explores Descartes' provisional axioms on customs and culture: that we must maintain custom in our public lives while we are searching for truth. This is illustrated by Sam-I-Am's willingness to illuminate the truth on a plane, on a train, in a box, with a fox, and in various other states that may exemplify Seussian culture. The pictures and incessant rhyming sometimes distract from the true focus of the work, but I still find it an invaluable resource in Cartesian studies.
