See the children’s books that we at Writer’s Relief fondly remember (and love!) in the slideshow below.
The Power Of Children’s Literature: Making The World Better One Book At A Time
Get a group of readers and writers together, and it won’t be long before they start talking about the books that made the biggest impact on their lives. Here at Writer’s Relief, we’ve had so many conversations about the stories we love—especially children’s stories—that we decided to create a slide show that features some of our favorites.
Children’s literature might be written with the young reader in mind—but don’t think for a second that it’s simple, fluffy, or unimportant. Many of these stories have changed our lives for the better with their positive, uplifting messages. And they’re still inspiring us—even as adults!
Below, you’ll find a compilation of our favorite children’s books and their messages. Some of these books have multilayered or multiple messages worthy of the most philosophical adult fiction; please note that we simplified and condensed the story lines for our summaries.
What book inspired you as a child? Is it on our list? Post your thoughts in our comments section (and share your favorite titles). Thanks for celebrating children’s literature with us!
Lots of nice selections, but the contemporary and PC books have not stood the test of time. Where is Mike Mulligan who shows the power of work ethic? Alexander and the Magic Pebble who shows the power of parental love?
Thanks for the enjoyment of prompting us to think of our favorite children’s books. And inspiring us to dream of our own writing adventures and achievements. It doesn’t matter that you didn’t include them all!
I love Curious George! and the Kapok Tree.
Thanks for sharing this! <3
