Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak is one of the Reading Kingdom’s recommended reading for kids. Reading expert and Reading Kingdom creator, Dr. Marion Blank explains why:
Where the Wild Things Are is one of our recommended reading for kids. Where the Wild Things Are tells the story of a young boy whose mischief gets him sent to his room without supper. There, his imagination transforms his bedroom into an extraordinary setting, with a forest and an ocean and a boat that takes him to a land full of “wild things.” The pictures are wonderful and powerful and together with the text, present a story which they readers of all ages can identify. This is a book that children want to hear again and again.
