|Maurice Sendak Memoriam on New York Times|
Last week, I posted a new book that I want to read. This week, it seems only appropriate to post another book I want to read. As I'm sure many of you know, Maurice Sendak will no longer be around to fill our world with beautiful, if somewhat unsettling, children's books. When I studied children's literature, I think we spent more time on Sendak than any other author. My favorite was Outside Over There; I think it captured the feelings of responsibility, affection, and frustration children have towards their younger siblings. Reading about Maurice Sendak, I have discovered another book that I desperately want to read, which I was much too old for at its time of publication.
Though I may have ended on a sad note, I hope you've found something here to inspire or move you.
