A boy is sent to bed, but instead of going straight to sleep he travels to a far off jungle where the wild things are!!! The pictures in this book are beautifully drawn and I think the kids would love to look at them. As an activity, I may let the young kids draw themselves as monsters and use adjectives to describe themselves. In "Where the Wild Things Are", the author uses lots of adjectives to help the reader create descriptive pictures in his or her mind.
