What A Picture Book Taught Me

I fell in love with Maurice Sendak’s Chicken Soup with Rice as a child, and now it’s my son’s number one most requested book at bedtime. Could be because I help sing along.

Tonight, I was reminded that it was Tuesday, my normal Petite Pen. So, in 10 words only, here’s what this picture book has taught me. If you have such a picture book/lesson in mind, please share it, maybe even in ten words or less, but either way, I’d love to read it. So ping it back here.

Happy Tuesday!

After Maurice Sendak’s Chicken Soup with Rice

Time craves endings.

Let life simmer;

it will be consumed.


  1. Curled in a ball
    We read, a tale tall
    Blissful, all

    One word over. πŸ˜…

    Your reflection reminded me of laying with the boys at bedtime, and reading to them and with them. Amazing memories. Thank you for this, K. πŸ’œ
