It was the first book I bought when I found out I was pregnant with my oldest daughter.
My friend had all the stuffed dolls in college, plus a poster of the cover of the book on her bedroom wall. She LOVED that book so much! I thought for sure when she had kids they'd have a Wild Things bedroom, but they didn't.
That's a great book, my two younger girls love it, too. At the doctor's office, one of his 4 exam rooms is painted with images from this book and he has a copy in the office that we read everytime we are there. He's also got one in Green Eggs and Ham motif.

Remember it? How can I forget it? That book is one of my favorites!!

It makes for a healthier and happier you which makes everything else you do better.
I have Substitute taught off and on for some time. This book has always been a favorite among younger kids. It has an air of mystery and charm that goes over well in a way that most other books do not.
Never had it, but I have read it to children MANY times
Good morning, son
In twenty years from now
Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
And I can tell you 'bout today
And how I picked you up and everything changed
It was pain
Sunny days and rain
I knew you'd feel the same things...
I love it! Bratty kid gets sent to his room without supper, where he dreams of going far away, until his mother gives in and lets him eat supper.
Of course, I was a brat who grew up to be a pain in the ***.

At the school I teach in, last year a student developed a group called Reading Fun Day, which one of my colleagues and I advised. The point of the club was to get younger kids excited about reading, and present positive role models to show that older kids do read. So what we did was develop a script and short play of "where the wild things are" and then performed it for all the second graders in the distict. Then, each second grader received his or her own copy of the book to keep, and we all read the book out loud together. It was a lot of fun, the kids had a blast, and we really helped generate an interest in reading.
This year's title: The True Story of the Three Little Pigs." I actually started calling for prices for 375 copies today.
I am glad many remember it because I honestly thought at first that it had become a foirgotten tale among the generations. Glad to see it is still popular among todays children just like it was for us .
