I am Geum

One day when the power failed and it was too wet to go out, we used it as an opportunity to read the Dr. Seuss classic "Green Eggs and Ham" together. We discussed why it was such a successful book. Then three of our staff came up with a new question: "Do you like to read?" and combined elements of Dr. Seuss's structure with their own ideas and a Lao setting.
