These inspiring words come from an unlikely source: children's books. Many important and profound life lessons are found in literature for the young ones. As children, we were so entertained by the stories, characters, and colorful illustrations that we never realized or understood the deeper messages these stories were teaching. Looking at them from adult eyes one can appreciate all the wise words these stories have to offer.
