Maurice Sendak

Watching the hype about "Where the Wild Things Are" has me reminiscing about the books I loved as a child. Do you folks who were kids in the 1970's remember the Really Rosie specials that aired on TV? My mom had a record of these stories in her classroom and I would always listen to them and read along in the books when I went in to her school to "help out".

Here's the catchy "Chicken Soup With Rice":

I especially loved "Pierre". Yes, that's Carole King singing:

Let me know if you remember these too. Once when I was a teacher I had the Chicken Soup With Rice book and I talked to someone about the song and they thought I was totally crazy and didn't remember it at all.

I have the dvd of half a dozen of the Rosie series, the Dutch Wild Things and Mickey in the Night Kitchen.

I like Johnny, who likes to be by himself!

I remember Chicken Soup With Rice! I'm going to track down the dvd that tarabu is talking about right now and put it on my kids' Amazon wish list!
