    Play where The Wild Things Are

    Maurice Sendak has passed away, the author of many beloved children's books, and one I had met! I waited in line to get a signed copy of a book by him at the BEA, and as you can imagine, it was long line. When I finally got the the front, he asked my name, and I said "I could recite Chicken Soup with Rice if you'd like .... " and he said "Please don't!" and smiled nicely.

    I loved reading Where the Wild Things Are to my preschool kids. They knew it by heart and would read along with me.

    RIP Mr Sendak
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    I've been Boo'd!!!
