My son adores books and anything having to do with reading or writing. Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak was one of the first books we added to his home library. We also managed to build up his DVD collection and luckily, many of the same videos that kept his attention then still hold his interest now.
Just the other night, he was going through his DVDs to pick one out to watch. Since school has started we haven’t really been spending that much time watching TV or having the TV on at all, so he started pulling out DVD after DVD and was having a hard time trying to select one.
I nearly had a heart attack when he pulled out an orange box and jumped in excitement to show me what he had discovered. It was the Scholastic DVD collection of Where the Wild Things Are and a few more picture books by Maurice Sendak.
We used to watch this DVD every day, sometimes several times a day when he was a toddler. There are some fun, catchy songs by Carole King that I downloaded several years ago onto my iPod but for some reason, the video and the music had long been forgotten.
With all the hype lately about the new film – you know which one I am referring to – I thought I’d point out that this original collection, from Scholastic, is great for younger viewers and those who enjoy sing-a-longs that won’t soon get out of your head.
