This is such a great, classic book to boost childrens imaginations. It is about a boy named Max who gets in some trouble at home and is sent to his room. Max is sad and feels a little bit bad about what he did. He falls asleep thinking and winds up in this crazy dream where his room turns into a jungle and wild things are running around everywhere! Max becomes King of all the wild things but eventually starts to miss his home. He wakes up in his room to a hot plate of dinner and is so happy to be back home. It is great for reminding children that they may make mistakes but they will still be loved in the end. It would be great to create puppets with and do a class shadow puppet show or re-tell as a large group with the children and the teacher playing the characters together in a circle complete with music and props.
