Oh -- I love your post but this is the first I realized that Maurice Sendak had passed away, so I'm sad too.

I really believe that all of the best children's books have something in them for grownups as well. Not just because we enjoy reading them out loud a lot more, but also because (I think) that as the kids grow, they begin to "get" what they didn't on the first reading--so the books stay with them (us). Those little golden over simplified books are quickly forgotten.

I hadn't realized that he passed away. I love his books too.

Sendak really touched a chord with so many children, and parents, didn't he Susan?
The world lost another great writer/illustrator and we are the poorer for it. Thankfully his books will live on and stay timeless.

Oh I'm so sorry to hear this Susan. That explains it. I've been trying to find Really Rosie for my grand daughter who is a huge Carol King fan.

Thank you so much for sharing...

P.S. Alligators All Around Us is another favorite of ours:)

Such great books Susan, I didn't know about his passing either. A sweet tribute. Thanks for sharing.
