Review: Where the Wild Things Are, brilliantly captures the imagination and innocence of childhood. Max seeks a place where he can be wild, but realizes that he is lonely and misses home. This book teaches the reader to appreciate the people that love and care for them.
In-class use: 1) After reading the story, students can create a monster (‘wild things”) of their own and then use descriptive words (adjectives) to describe them to their classmates. This will help expand the students’ vocabulary and allow them to be creative. 2) Students can act-out the story. One child can be Max and then a couple of students can be the wild things. Students can focus on creating their customs and creating a script that matches up with the book.
“This book is about a young boy who is restless and is misbehaving. He escapes his home through his own imagination, but soon realizes how good he has it at home. This book can show children that it is ok to make mistakes. It can teach them how their parents have unconditional love for them. This would be a good book to use with an activity to have children share their emotions when they might've been in trouble at home or in school.”claudia baldenegro wrote this review 3 days ago.

This is a classic book, and an award winner. I would suggest this for a read aloud to preschool and even kindergarten age children.”Vanessa Rios wrote this review 4 days ago.

“Caldecott Honor Award winner
Ages 4-8 (Preschool-3rd grade)
This book is about a young boy named Max who loves to wear a wolf suit and cause terror around the house; one night he goes extra crazy and his mom sends him to his room without supper. In his room he imagines himself sailing to a new world full of wild things, he then becomes their kins and tames them. After awhile he becomes lonely and misses home so he sails back to his mother and finds his supper still on the table and still nice a hot.
This book is a great story and a classic for children. The illustrations are different looking than normal but that makes them so much better. This book pushes children to imagine their own world to escape to.
Teachers can use this book to support imagination in the classroom. It can also be used an art lesson and help children illustration their imaginations. ”
“Where the Wild things are is a story about a little boy named max. One night Max is sent to his room without dinner for acting like a Wild thing. While in his room Max imagines the adventures he has with the wild things. When trying to leave, his new found friends try to keep him there.
I like the illustrations within the book. ”
“Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak is one of my favorite childhood books. This is a story about a little boy name Max creating a world of imagination after he was sent to his room for acting out. When he enters his room, he imagines himself in a faraway place where he could be king and do what he wants. He meets the Wild Things and explores their world with them. At the end of the story he returns back home to have dinner with his mother and everything goes back to normal. Sendak does a creative job designing the pictures to go with the story. My favorite quote in the story would have to be “And Max, the king of all wild things, was lonely and wanted to be where someone loved him best of all.” Because children always need their mother, even if they are mad!”Cori Hart wrote this review 6 days ago.
