Newest in author's Half-Moon Hollows series, most of which (definitely the Jane ones) I have really enjoyed. Some of which the enjoyment was proportional to how much I liked the main characters.
I'm off to a girls out lunch where we will collect books for our public library's book sale. I've been loading books-I-won't-reread as found into three large boxes in my car all month so we'll drop off plenty even if no additional donations.
This evening </i> hope to catch up on my booklikes dashboard and final posts for last weekend's 24in48 Readathon.
Let the wild rumpus start!
Oh Maurice Sendak, we love you so! The illustrator and writer (born June 10, 1928) created naughty children and lovable monsters in books like Where the Wild Things Are and In the Night Kitchen. He got his start making window displays for F.A.O. Schwarz.
Where the Wild things are is a classic book with only ten sentences in the entire book. A young boy by the name of max is sent to his room without supper for not doing what he is being told. He travels to a land where wild creatures roam and are free to do as they please. Later in the story max is ready to go home and so he does. There, he is finally given his supper. The illustrations definitely speak for themselves and portray the story very well. I can't wait to add this book to my classroom library in the future. I would give this book a four and a half stars out of five and it is given an AD740L on the Lexile scale.
I would have my students create their own wild thing using markers and crayons to add as much detailing as possible. This would be artwork I would hang up on my wall for everyone to see for a week or so. i would also consider doing a writing assignment for the book as well. i believe there are so many ideas that can stem from an adventure such as the one that Max embarked on.
