Purpose of this Blog...

You may have noticed that not all books are equal in capturing children's imaginations and in cultivating those innocent, tender souls. My goal is to help you find the ones that do!

Can you blame me?  I mean, could you have resisted buying a costume of Max's "wolf suit" (from Where the Wild Things Are) - half price - even if it meant saving it for your grandson for almost two years?

To the great delight of her local librarians, my daughter took her little two-year-old "King of the Wild Things" to their library story hour Halloween Party all dressed up and ready to make "mischief of one kind and another".  Here's a little photo blog of the day...enjoy!

The night Max wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind and another...

...they called him the most wild thing of all and made him king of all wild things.

"And now", cried Max, "let the wild rumpus start!"

And Max, king of all wild things, was lonely and wanted to be where someone loved him best of all.

But the wild things cried, "Oh please don't go - we'll eat you up - we love you so!"  And Max said, "No!"

Like all wild things, my grandson finally had to say good-bye and head for home to a good supper. Hope you have a Happy Halloween - be safe!
