storytime, Stay wild my child x

January 28 2016 | Blog

I love these images from Amen Photography, she did a whole 'Where the Wild things are' photo shoot with her son.

The book is a classic, over 50 years old now and as relevant as ever! It was written by Maurice Sendak. Originally published in 1963 it was banned at first by librarians because they thought it would frighten children! It went on to win the Hans Christian Anderson Illustration award and has since become one of the top selling children's books.

It reminds us to love and nurture the "wild thing" in our children and in ourselves.

To give our children such deep, strong roots that their imaginations can reach far...

 To indulge their wild sides...

But know they can always come home to unconditional love..

And a supper that is still warm xxxx

“And [he] sailed back over a year
and in and out of weeks
and through a day
and into the night of his very own room
where he found his supper waiting for him
and it was still hot”
― Maurice Sendak

Did I mention that I love this book? :) You can buy it here although it's much more fun for you and your own little 'wild thing' to go and hunt for it in your local bookstore!

Once you've read the book together check out the movie it's a work of art, you can buy that here.

Warner Brothers also have a bunch of cool stuff like the soundtrack and an I phone App here.

Stay wild and free you beautiful Mummas and babies xxx

“Let the wild rumpus start!”
― Maurice Sendak
