"And now," cried Max, "let the wild rumpus start!"

One of my earliest memories involves this book. My parents read it to me many times, every day. As I've grown and become a teacher, it's been one of my favorite books to read aloud to my classes. Since I've become a parent, I've been sure to share this story with both of my children.
Thank you, Mr. Sendak, for the love of language and books you have shared.
