National Book Month: Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are

Perhaps the best way to celebrate Maurice Sendak’s landmark, Caldecott-winning 1963 children’s book Where the Wild Things Are is to read it to someone, or have someone read it to you.

In the video below President Obama reads this classic to a group of kids at the 2009 Easter Egg Roll on the White House lawn.
