No, I haven't. But I am sure going to get a copy now that Maurice Sendak is no longer with us. It is a shame because my children love watching "Little Bear."
Yes, my kids had a copy. I have to admit I thought the book was a little creepy but I know kids sure love it.
Only to a class of special needs primary school chioldren, they loved it.
Sure, lots of times. I read it when I was a kid, and I've read it to my own kids as well. I was bummed to hear of Maurice Sendak's passing today.
Well yes, of course! I have a treasured copy from my own childhood which is also still treasured by my own now rather more grown-up children. I think it is an absolute mastrerpiece of children's writing and illustration whose prose reads like poetry and whose pared down language and phrasing carries multiple layers of rich and subtle meaning. Children certainly do love it and I think that is because it speaks directly to their experience. I suspect that if someone doesn't like this book, they have forgotten what it was like to be a child.
Yes, back when I was in kindergarten. I loved that book as a kid. with the authors passing I might go read it again.
Every year as part of story time. It was actually one of the stories I felt safe to tell in a very conservative part of the country where Halloween stories were not always welcome. I would, instead, read stories about kids who overcame things that scared them.

I saw it and I have some mixed feelings about it... they took a simple premise and maybe made it way too complicated. I was expected the monsters to be monsters and not adults.. but I know that was the point... Still mulling it over... I loved the soundtrack

There are plenty of good children's books that keep me interested and wouldn't mind reading it again. Personally, I love The Tale of Despereaux, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian, and Persepolis.

Have you ever had a wild animal just come right up to you and what did you do when it did?It doesn't have to be a big bad ferocious animal. It could be a raccoon, squirrel, deer, even a bird. It's funny because after working at a dude ranch and seeing the extraordinary range of reactions to...
