Huevos Verdes Con Jamón

This is NS' favorite book recently--Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham in Spanish. Lately she's taken to reading it by herself. ("Shall I read it to you?" we ask. "No 'anks," she replies matter-of-factly, clambering up on the chair.)

The Spanish version involves a pesky, insistent character called Juan Ramón, whose name provides the essential rhyme pattern for Huevos Verdes Con Jamón.

NS' version of the title and the story itself: "No! 'món!"
