Where The Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

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.
