5 Life Lessons from Classic Children's Books

Before College textbooks sucked the fun out of reading for pleasure, we grew up indulging our childhood imaginations in our most cherished storybooks. Here are 5 Life Lessons from Classic Children's Books you might have overlooked:

1) “Why did you do all this for me?' he asked. 'I don't deserve it. I've never done anything for you.' 'You have been my friend,' replied Charlotte. 'That in itself is a tremendous thing.” - Charlotte's Web, E. B. White

Lesson: There is nothing more valuable in this world than true friendship.

2) “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” - Happy Birthday to You, Dr. Seuss

Lesson: Be proud of and love who you are. Don't try to be anyone else but yourself.

3) "Always remember, you are braver than you believe, strong than you seem, and smarter than you think." - Winnie the Pooh, A. A. Milne

Lesson: You can achieve anything. The first step is to believe in yourself and the rest will follow.

4) “Then from far away across the world he smelled good things to eat, so he gave up being king of the wild things.” - Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak

Lesson: Wild adventures are fun, but there's no place like home.

5) “I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living my baby you’ll be.” Love You Forever, Robert Munsch

Lesson: No matter your age, we should be grateful for the unconditional love from the special people in our lives.
