Characters leap from the pages! As we celebrate Maurice Sendak’s life this year, we remember what Max the Wolf taught us as we revisit the classic film version of this author’s timeless treasure. Then, Pueblo and Navajo oral histories teach us to listen to the Wise Wolf and that we have much to learn from our animal brothers and sisters. Next, the all-star Gruffalo cast is back! This time, it’s the Gruffalo's daughter who wants to know if the Big Bad Mouse was just one of Dad's tall tales. Lastly, say “hello” to Daniel Tiger, one of the best-loved friends in the new spinoff of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood! This is an all-English language program that celebrates the love of reading and learning with friends, neighbors, and maybe even some beasts!
