Are your kids fans of Where the Wild Things Are and other classic picture books by Maurice Sendak? The author and illustrator, who died last year, would have been 85 today, and Google is celebrating with an animated Doodle that takes you through several of his most loved books.
You can see the animation by going to Google's home page and clicking on the decorated logo. The popular search often has fun Doodles that kids would enjoy, and can lead you to research some interesting topics.
Update: It's no longer on the home page, but you can still see the Google Doodle animated Google logo created for the late Maurice Sendak's 85th birthday in the Google Doodle archive.
