What a genius this man was…Imagine a world without any Maurice Sendak books…Impossible right?
I used to sing 'Chicken Soup with Rice' to Julia when she was a toddler. If you haven't checked out his 'Nutshell Library', YOU MUST. It includes 'Alligators All Around', 'Pierre', 'Chicken Soup with Rice' and 'One Was Johnny'. Also, the Scholastic video is BRILLIANT, Carole King sings 'Chicken Soup with Rice', if you've never heard it, well now is the time.
Rock on Maurice. Not many were/are/will ever be as awesome as you.
