There were many things I could not wait to share with my daughter. My favorite films, my favorite foods, my favorite places and of course the works of Maurice Sendak.

Many a parent rush out to buy their most beloved Maurice Sendak book to share and read to their little one, even before their baby is even born. It’s just one of those things that moms and dads adore and hope their kids will too.

Here are 5 of the best Maurice Sendak (written and illustrated) books, musts for the family.
