Celebrate 50-years of beloved children's author, Maurice Sendak

RIP Maurice Sendak: He sailed off through night and day and in and out of weeks and almost over a year to where the wild things are. We will miss you!

RIP Maurice Sendak  “Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.”

¤ Maurice Sendak ---Chicken Soup with Rice---January---- In January it’s so nice, While slipping on the sliding ice, To sip hot chicken soup with rice. Sipping once, sipping twice, Sipping chicken soup with rice.
