There are many great children’s books that should be revisited in one’s adult life also. We have made a list of some of these books to enjoy the timelessness of childhood.

Oh, the Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss
Throughout our entire long life, we go searching for ourselves. From what we think about ourselves, to our confusion about our purpose. We are all searching. The book is about starting a new challenge and reminding ourselves of the untapped potential in all of us.
Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
They say when we are a child, our imagination runs wild and as we grow up it takes a back seat. In the book, Max becomes the king of the Wild Things in his imagination. Though our mind becomes our comfort, it is good to be back to reality sometimes and find the love waiting for us.
Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne
Winnie the Pooh has been in my life forever. Thousand Acres is one world I will never leave. Be it Pooh’s optimism, Piglet’s loyalty, or the wisdom and care of the friends, Winnie the Pooh is a comfort. It makes the child in you alive again.
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
Children are a lot stronger and smarter than we give them credit for. They understand the world in a way that adults sometimes forget. With the help of their imagination, two outcast fifth-graders overcome hardships like death and bond over friendships.
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol
A favorite book of many. Carroll has written a children’s book that is different at every age. With characters evolving as one grows older, the book is a perfect example of a book never being read twice.
