If you saw Where the Wild Things Are this week and loved it — or if your children are too young for it but want to enjoy Sendak on film, try the Sendak collection from my favorite Scholastic Storybook series. It includes not only the title story but other Sendak favorites like “In the Night Kitchen” and the wonderful Nutshell classics that teach letters (“Alligators All Around”), numbers (“One Was Johnny”), and the months (“Chicken Soup with Rice”) to wonderful songs by Carole King. Our family favorite was the one about Pierre, who learned not to say “I don’t care!”

    Given the cool weather even here in the Florida tropics, I’ll be singing with Carole King, “Chicken once, Chicken twice, We’re havin’ Chicken Soup with Rice!” (It is rarely soup or stew weather here, so this is a rare opportunity)
