Maybe you remember these too:
“A Light in the Attic”
“Where the Sidewalk Ends”
I can still see the black and white cover with the pencil drawing on those Shel Silverstein poetry books that I read as a kid. Maybe you did too.
He’s gone now, but today some of his unpublished works have been put in print in a new book called “Every Thing On it”. So now your kids can enjoy his poetry as much as you did.
Maybe you had a book from childhood that you still remember and inspired you.
I remember my favorite line that still inspires me today from him was, “Anything is possible. Anything can be.”
I want my kids to grow up believing that. I want to grow up believing that.
Another one for me is “The Little Engine That Could”. It’s a favorite at our house.
You want to protect your family from hurt and pain, but you know eventually they will encounter broken hearts and face long painful journeys. Then there are the people who might say to them, “you can’t.”
When life gets hard, when the pain feels too much to bear, I want them to say, ”I Think I Can. I Think I Can.” “Anything is possible. Anything can be.
And one day I will say and they will say, “I knew I could."
God is by my side for the whole journey and he’s by yours too.
Tell me what Children’s Book made an impact on you.
