Once upon a time, wild things roared… in Junction


That’s how these little wild things prepared to listen to ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ by Maurice Sendak.

Everyone’s read (or those who haven’t, SHOULD read), Maurice Sendak’s ‘Where the Wild Things Are’. Originally published in 1963, the story has been delighting parents as much as their kids ever since. The story is about Max, a boy who while wearing his beloved wolf costume, harasses the dog, makes trouble and generally gets into mischief until his exasperated mother sends him to bed without dinner. But it takes more than 4 walls to hold the wild rumpus bursting out of Max, and his adventure begins.

While fun and imaginative and wild, the book also subtly looks at feeling angry, and how to cope with that, and how we can be angry or frustrated at people while still loving them, and being loved in return, just the same.

The book is very short, and more picture-heavy than word-heavy. The children took it up to themselves to read the book once again and went on to drawing and coloring pictures of their versions of wild things.

Our thanks to Ninzy and Neten for the wonderful wild pictures!!!

    Sorry we missed the reading. One of my 3 musketeers & I myself are down with bad coughs & we didn’t want to spread the germs!
