We’ve lost the appreciation for simple messages these days. Somewhere along the way, we started associating great ideas with complex narratives, plot twists, and best seller’s lists; but simple truths found in children’s books are amongst the most powerful ideas out there. And no one is too old to be told that they are loved, and they can do anything. So, whether you’re looking to update your child’s book collection, or need some solid soul food, this list has a book for you!

Oh Max. He just wanted a little independence! At the end of the day, while it is nice to have people listen to you, the ones who are willing to give you some tough love are worth fighting for. After all, if they stuck around while you were causing a wild rumpus, they must be pretty special.

2. I’ll Love You Forever

As a kid, this is such a reaffirming book, with the message that your parents love you even when you flush their favorite watch down the toilet! As an adult, this book is an insightful reminder how we are to love our parents as they age, and the role of caretaker is sometimes reversed. Go ahead, grab some tissues when re-reading this one!
