Take a trip on the wild side. Follow Max to the place where the wild things are.
This companion is made to be used by speech and language pathologist to target speech and language goals during speech therapy. The activities are developed to compliment the book "Where The Wild Things Are' by Maurice Sendak. I have no relationship with the book authors or publishing company - I just LOVE this book :)
The companion is made to work with both PRESCHOOL and ELEMENTARY students.
