Roaring and Gnashing! Long Live Maurice Sendak!

Thank you, Sir...  You engaged our children and will forever cause people around the world to see the importance of

exploring their world.

making mistakes.

climbing a hill.

facing their fears.

screaming.

smiling.

laughing.

sighing.

having "nakie" time.

crying.

finding magic in a special place.

feeling sad.

finding a way to express themselves.

a warm dinner at the end of the day.

a parent's love.

and... the importance of finding a special book, one that the child can return to, day after day... even when they are older.

 

Thank you, Mr. Sendak! You will be missed.

Maurice Sendak (1928-2012)

Thank you so much for this tribute, Chip. I will feature it on Facebook and Twitter. Yes, we will be reading Sendak tonight and hopefully saluting him with our actions.
