Books at Bedtime: Remembering Maurice Sendak

At age 83, children’s book writer and illustrator, Maurice Sendak has died.  Here’s a link to the New York Times obituary.   PaperTigers recently covered a curatorial project Sendak undertook for the Jewish museum on Hanukkah lamps in this post.   Do check it out.  And if you have half the chance, do check out the author’s many wonderful books for children.  I certainly will be heading to the library in the very near future to do just that!  What was your favorite Sendak title?  Which ones did you enjoy reading as a kid?  And which ones do you enjoy reading to your children today?
