it was amazing

My daughter calls this the "max book." On the surface it may seem like a scary story for a young girl (age 3), but my daughter really connects with the themes in the story. She loves when a forest grows in Max's room and talks about how she would feel if she had trees in her bedroom. She loves the picture of the wild things and talks about how they may look sleepy, happy or upset and why they might feel that way. At the end when Max wants to be "where someone loves him best of all" - my daughter talks about how Max must miss his Mommy. But reading the story with her is the best at the end, the last line "and it was still hot" (in reference to Max's supper) is her favorite part and she loves to "read" it herself. A classic children's book for obvious reasons - a funny, engaging, sweet, but edgy story with amazing pictures.
