Product Description
Did you know…
Dr. Seuss wrote “Green Eggs and Ham” on a bet that he couldn’t write a book with fifty or fewer distinct words.
The bet was made in 1960 with Bennett Cerf, the co-founder of Random House, and was for $50 (about $382 today).  Despite Dr. Seuss, a.k.a. Theodore Geisel, winning the bet by producing one of his most popular works Green Eggs and Ham using exactly 50 unique words, Cerf never paid up.   Green Eggs and Ham went on to be Geisel’s best selling work, so he made out on it anyways.
Geisel’s first successful children’s book, Cat in the Hat, also was the result of a challenge to write a book in under a certain number of words. 

Your challenge:
You must write a short children’s story using Oxford Word List Words.
• If you are in groups one or two of the English rotations, you may only use the first 100 words.
• If you are in group three of the English rotations, you must challenge yourself to use the first 200 words.
• If you are in group four of the English rotations, you must challenge yourself to use the first 300 words.
