Where The Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

Little Max was sent to bed without supper- and he was not too happy about it. So he decides to sail away to where the wild things are and become their king. When Max finally decides to come home, his supper is waiting on him, still hot. This book offers elaborate illustrations and a fun "get away" theme for children. The intended audience for this book is K-2nd graders. An activity I would do with this book would be for the student's to draw their ultimate "get away" place that they rule over. After they had finished, they would present to the class, explaining why they included what they included in their special place. This gives students an opportunity to show pride in their work and also help them get over a potential fear of speaking in front of peers. The more practice the better!
