What the community says about Where the Wild Things Are
- "Everyone has read this book in their life. Such a great book that helps show children that we all don't have to be the same and teaches such a great message of acceptance. I remember my mother reading this to me as a child. It was something I looked forward to every night. Now it's something I share with my son. This is such a great book for any child, of any age."
- "I read my son a bedtime story every night, but when we go to the library to select books it is hard pick out a great book from all the choices. I'm looking for some must-read titles to be sure we come home with really great books. I have heard about Where the Wild Things Are, but never read it. I think my son will really like it, so we will definitely look for this title next time we're at the library. It's everything I want - highly rated, relatively classic, and appears to definitely qualify as a must-read."
- "Does anything really need to be said about this epic classic? It's been a book, a movie, and probably even a poem and a sonnet. Our great great grandchildren will still be telling Maurice Sendak's classic tale centuries from now. Dim the lights, light a candle, tuck the littl'uns into bed and tell them all about...where the wild things are!"

in What are the best picture books
- "I agree that Where the Wild Things are is one of the best children's books! I enjoyed reading the book when I was a kid over and over. I've also read it to kids regularly when I worked in the school system. This book is great for the art, lessons, and encouragement of children's imagination.""After taking a look at the synopsis and plot of the story, "Where the Wild Things Are" seems like it would be a very good series of children's books. I feel that not only could that be entertained, but also learn a thing or two here!""Excellent solution (to a VERY vague question); I approve. Given the single solution, why not offer multiple links, though? This link goes to amazon, surely there are other ways to obtain this book."
- ""Where the Wild Thimgs Are" by Maurice Sendak is a lacklustre read for your child. This is a story about a young kindergardener who wants to be a wild wolf. The artwork isbright and entertaining, but the story gets boring real fast. The re-read value is low and there is very little real educational value that this book offers."
- "What is there to say? This is identical to the beloved book of my childhood. So happy to pass it on to my boys. I always identified personally with the little hero of this book because I was often sent to my room without any supper. So this little boy and I “hung out” quite a bit when I was younger. Good times. I have always been a huge fan of Maurice Sendak. And I love how, even though the monsters look a little scary, they never hurt the boy and the boy actually has full control over them (since he is imagining, anyway). So there is no real threat of young readers being very scared by the monsters in the book. Classic that should be in everyone’s library."
- "This work really takes me back. This book is a must have for anyone's collection, adult or child. This is said because of us who are adults now grew up reading this, some at home and some at school. The tale is endless and the artwork will stay with us forever, as it shaped and molded so many imaginations. This is a classic and if by some horrible misfortune, you've never picked it up, the time has never been better."
