Where the Wild Things Are , by Maurice Sendak, was one of my favorite books as a child. Not only did I love the story, but I found the illustrations to be magical.
Libraries are not only a great place for the newest books, but they also provide an opportunity for us to experience and discover classics, such as this.
In 1964, Where the Wild Things Are, won the Randolph Caldecott Medal. This award is named in honor of nineteenth century English illustrator, Randolph Caldecott, and is awarded annually to the illustrator of the most distinguished picture book for children. It is sponsored by the Association of Library Service to Children a division of the American Library Association.
