Muley Reads: Where the Wild Things Are

Muley Reads: Where the Wild Things Are!

Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. In this iconic story, when young Max dresses in his wolf suit and causes havoc in the house, his mother sends him to bed. From there, Max sets sail to an island inhabited by the Wild Things, who name him king and share a wild rumpus with him. But then from far away across the world, Max smells good things to eat. What makes Sendak's book so compelling is its grounding effect: Max has a tantrum and in a flight of fancy, visits his wild side – but he is pulled back by a belief in parental love to a supper “still hot." Generations have shared this beautiful picture book, and children of all ages will want to return to it again and again.

Reading is Fundamental!  Books add the FUN, Muley adds DA MENTAL!!
