HASH(0xa465e948) out of 5 stars Wonderful! Jan. 13 2009
By Mike Brown - Published on
Format: Paperback
`Where the Wild Things Are' story and pictures by Maurice Sendak.

Can I say `classic' again?! There it is, said!

A delightful story about a boy called Max having a moment of rebellion that ends with him being sent to his room without supper. Instead of sitting there sulking, his imagination runs and his room transforms into a forest with an ocean that he crosses in a little boat to discover a land full of `Wild Things'. These monsters of his imagination are no match for Max, he stares them down and is crowned as their king. His anger, dissolved, Max returns home to find his supper waiting for him.

I have strong and happy memories of this book, it must have resonated with something in me as a child! The outstanding pictures, the fantastic `Wild Things', paint a story far richer than might be expected with so few words in the book. A keeper!

HASH(0xa465edc8) out of 5 stars A Fun Book That Can Be Used To Teach A Deep Message Feb. 11 2010
By Mark K. Wickersham - Published on
Format: Paperback
Where the Wild Things Are was published nearly 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 this morning. I have a four year old and a seven year old, and 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 to sail 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.

HASH(0xa465f2ac) out of 5 stars Excellent children's book! Jan. 21 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a very intriguing and interesting story. I love how the author gets inside the minds of children, creating and dominating over their imaginary friends. Kids create up all sorts of make believe animals in their heads so it is really cool to see them drawn out. I believe this would be a great way to open up a writing session to a class because it will get their imagination flowing. The pictures are drawn in such beautiful detail. I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to all teachers to read to their students and all parents to read to their children!
