my favorite illustration in….

…Owen’s favorite story in Owen’s near favorite book.

This truly illustrates the genius of Maurice Sendak.

Little Bear has just made a new, special friend, and Sendak caught the feeling perfectly in Little Bear’s physical expression, in a way that might be hard to capture with words in a simple “I Can Read” children’s book.

Every time I see this picture, I am six years old and feeling this sweet, quiet joy.
