Where The Wild Things Are

Where The Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak is a picture book about a boy named Max who was causing trouble at his house one night.  For his mischief, Max's mom called him a wild thing and sent Max to his room with no dinner.  Max's room started to turn into a forest and Max travelled to the place where the wild things lived.  Max became the king of the wild things and ruled over them, but eventually became lonely.  Max decided to go back home to his mom.  When he arrived to his room again, Max's hot supper was waiting for him.  Where The Wild Things Are gives the teacher and the students the opportunity to be very imaginative.  A great activity for this book would be to have the students create a picture or poster of what their bedroom would turn into if they were wild things.  The reading level for Where The Wild Things Are is the middle of Grade 1 to the end of Grade 2 with a Direct Reading Assessment Level of 16.
