What educators are saying

LOVE this book, and really like the song choices and performance ideas. Kids really feel like they took ownership of it.
This was perfect for my first ever Where the Wild Things are themed program. I loved the way the program was laid out and it gave a ton of great suggestions for performances! Thanks!

Read some of the reviews:
"Absolutely loved this!! I will definitely put this program on again in a few years! I did it with 2nd grade students in a K-2 program so I did make a few changes for time, but I received so many positive comments on this! I try to keep concerts as fresh and new as possible which is a bigger challenge every year, so this was perfect! Thanks so much!"

"Awesome! I did this with my second graders, it was so easy to follow, simple to customize, and the kids and parents LOVED it! Thank you!"

"One of the BEST programs I have ever done! I am still using many of the songs and games that were included in this program. The kids loved doing this program and it was easy and straight forward. Get it! You will love it!"
