Age 4 to 6; A fun filled book for little ones

"Once there was a tree…and she loved a little boy…" begins this beautifully crafted story written and illustrated by Shel Silverstein. When the boy is young, he and the tree enjoy happy times together, as he gathers her leaves and swings from her branches. Eventually, the boy grows too old for play and begins to concern himself with more grown-up pursuits, like earning a living and raising a family. And in a spirit of true love and selflessness, the tree gives the boy everything she has in order to make his dreams come true. "Charming and very moving, this classic carries messages of grown-up truth," writes the Los Angeles Times. This beloved story tells a portrayal of generosity and sharing.

When a misbehaving Max is banished to his room without dinner by his mother, he does what any little boy would love to do. He sails to a distant island populated by giant, freakish monsters who are every bit as wild as he is. Even better—they're impressed enough by his ferocious claws and indomitable spirit to make him their king. For decades, Maurice Sendak's Caldecott Medal-winning picture book has been delighting folks of all ages who've ever fantasized about becoming lord of their own rumpus. So go ahead—let the wind fill your sail and take you to where the wild things are, then cut loose the monster within. Your porridge will still be hot—and your mother will still love you—when you get back.
