  • I just read an article about "Where the wild things are" being the most popular book to read to children. And if you haven't read it to your child you need to run right out and purchase a copy. It made me feel like I must have been a less than caring father never to have read it to my son, Josh.
    Oh, we did other things together. Like camping and canoeing or we were involved in community theatre (walked the boards as it were) together. I was even the Santa for his Kindergarten class.
    But although we are both voracious readers and often send each other links to interesting articles we have read, I never read to him as a child.
    Maybe it was because he was already reading magazines at 4 years old.
    Now it is too late. He turns 40 on the 28th. My biggest problem is what book should I send him? Maybe "Where the wild things are".
