10 Children’s Books You Should Read As An AdultJesus Daily
We’ve lost the appreciation for simple messages these days.

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!
1. Where the Wild Things Are

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!
