Day 129 ~ Where the Wild Things Are

“And Max, the king of all wild things, was lonely and wanted to be where someone loved him best of all.” 

I think we all want to feel as if some one loves us ‘best of all.’ May it sounds a bit selfish, but that feeling that you are loved by someone ‘best of all’ gives you a feeling of importance and security.


Sendak was an extremely gifted writer who according to the Los Angeles Time ‘Revolutionized the children’s genre. Washington Post said that Sendak “transformed children’s literature from a gentle playscape into a medium to address the psychological intensity of growing up.” While his passing is sad, his literary work will live on for children of all ages.

    I love how many people have quoted him today by saying, “you don’t have to talk down to children.” If anything he taught us that children have great insight and can enter discussions, and be adventurous and innocent, and still lovely and even mature. I just love that about him.
