RIP Maurice Sendak, Where the Wild Things Are was a big part of my childhood and one of those treasured books I passed on. Off to a Wild Rumpus.

Charlotte's Web by E.B. White--I fondly remember my mom reading this to me, all three times.

Charlotte's Web's main focus is friendship. It can also be used to teach about spiders. Great chapter book for a read aloud.
