In the Night Kitchen by Maurice Sendak is a 1971 Caldecott Honor Book that features young Mickey who dreams a vivid adventure in the baker’s kitchen. Sendak is one of my favorite illustrators – his books are just magical.
Paige is growing up with Junie B. Jones, but I grew up with Ramona Quimby. That spunky little girl made me laugh, she made me cry and to this day I still treasure every story I read. Together, we’ve been reading Ramona Forever – it’s opened up some pretty amazing dialog between us. I’m sharing stories of my childhood with Paige so she’s hearing two stories!
