♥ One of my favorite children's books of all time!!

Where the Wild Things Are was one of my favorite books ever. I still remember my mother reading it to me and playing out a very grumpy sounding max.

One of the "this influenced me" books I read as a young woman.

Beautiful three-dimensional paper works by Jayme McGowan, aka Roadside Projects. They remind me a little of the work of Lindsey Carr, Crankbunny and Toodle Pip. Jayme’s work will be appearing in the “Where The Wild Things Are” inspired show “Terrible Yellow Eyes” at Gallery Nucleus. More information here. Prints are available in her Etsy shop - they’re ridiculously affordable too.

Into the Wild: The story of idealist Christopher Johnson McCandless, and his travels through the Alaskan wilderness. Had he not met misfortune, I think McCandless would have led the life of, say, an Edward Abbey. A sad, cautionary tale told with sensitively by author Jon Krakauer.

We love Dr. Seuss for creating fun books that are easy to read and entertaining. If you are going to read just one, this is the must read! There are some great ways to use many of his books for school and homeschool lessons. Great for beginning readers because of the repetition in many of his books. Several have even been made into movies. Great tie in for classes!

OBJ: Students will describe Max's character traits with evidence from the text. SP: p5 How would you describe Max? Why? p12 What is happening to his room? p16 Describe the place you think he is going. p29 Was the place you imagined the same/different? Why? p33 How would you describe Max now? End/p38 How do you think he feels about being home? Any more/new traits that Max has?

What can I possibly say about this book? It's one of the best stories and most well-written books ever. Bradbury, as always, relied heavily on his reader's information to fill in the gaps, and usually, I find that sloppy writing, but with this--with this story--it works; like a haunting nightmare hovering on the edge of your memory. Ah, great stories and fantastic writing make me swoon :D
