Editorial Reviews

“The clearer reproductions of the original art are vibrant and luminous.”
“Each word has been carefully chosen and the simplicity of the language is quite deceptive.”
“A timeless classic that continues to win over the hearts of children. The simple, rhythmic text and expressive illustrations are just as appealing today as they were when I was a child.” 10 Must-Have Books for 2-Year-Olds

    This review was written for Where the Wild Things Are, Hardcover.
    Where the Wild Things Are was published more than fifty years ago and won the Caldecott Medal for the Most Distinguished Picture Book of the Year. It has won several other awards, and it is clearly evident why. I remember enjoying Where the Wild Things Are a great deal during my elementary years so I decided to read it to my girls. Both of them were entertained by the read. They laughed out loud at times and weren't scared in the least bit. Where the Wild Things Are shows a boy named Max misbehaving and then being sent to his room without dinner. While Max is in his room he imagines sailing to a land where the wild things are. Although the wild things have sharp teeth and claws, they are actually pretty cute. The self-absorbed, but creative Max is crowned king of all wild things but later imagines to sail back to his room after smelling good things to eat. The story ends with Max's warm and yummy supper waiting for him on a table. Reading this book to your children gives you the opportunity to teach them about obedience, stewardship, love, our choice of words, consequences, our imagination, grace and more. I hope to watch the movie soon.
