Daniel’s Library

One of my favorite features in Daniel’s nursery by SISSY + MARLEY was the library featuring ubabub’s Booksee Shelf.

The clear acrylic wall-mounted shelves turn your library into an art gallery.

RIP Maurice Sendak

He’s a childhood favorite that got even better as an adult.  If you think you know about Maurice Sendak but haven’t seen his interview on The Colbert Report, you’ve really got to watch it.  And even if you don’t know anything about him, watch it if you love to laugh.

I hope you at least have the following titles in your library…

Where the Wild Things Are

In the Night Kitchen (Caldecott Collection)

Nutshell Library (Caldecott Collection) (includes Chicken Soup with Rice, Pierre and Alligators all Around)

Then, just for good measure, pick up Really Rosie and listen to it in the car.  You’ll love it as much as the kids will.

(those are amazon affiliate links but you can pick them up anywhere)

Maurice Sendak died this morning.  He was 83 years old.  I know I’ll be treasuring these titles even more after today.
