Where the Book Lovers Are

There’s nothing better than letting the imagination wander in a good story. From beach reads to classic children’s books, we are self-proclaimed bookworms through and through. To celebrate Book Lovers Day on August 9th, we are revisiting one of our favorite children’s books inspired by Maurice Sendak.

We don’t mind being called “Wild Thing” and being sent to our room, like Max, since we could spend all day lounging in these knit pajamas. We love the razorback tank top featuring a high-low hemline and the flirty zebra-print bottoms in this Joe Boxer pajama set. Let the wild rumpus of reading begin!

As Illustrations and imagination can be the best parts of a book, fancy yourself in some slippers to kick back in. These Mikki house slippers are the cat’s meow and why bother with plain sippers when you can have an ultra cute and comfy, pair of kitty slippers to leave you with a Cheshire Cat smile?

To stay awake through a long book, fill up a cup with coffee or tea in a novelty mug like this zebra-print ceramic mug by 3dRose.

End Book Lovers Day by watching your favorite books come to life. The Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVD features animated illustrations of Maurice Sendak’s “Where the Wild Things Are” and 5 other stories by the classic author with a fun read along screen for the kids.

Here’s to faraway lands and magical places that only the imagination can visit.
