I was saddened this morning to hear that Maurice Sendak has passed away. This wonderfully talented man wrote and illustrated some of the greatest children's books of all time - including those below:
He is probably best known for the two books "Where The Wild Things Are" and "In The Night Kitchen", but the little "Nutshell Library" books are my favorites. I have told you before about my obsession with "Chicken Soup with Rice".
I believe that his books should be a part of every child's life. And I am grateful that he left us the legacy of his fabulous works.
We will miss you, Mr. Sendak. And I thank you for being you.
