If you’re looking for books that inspire creativity in your children, then look no further. Here are four of my favorite stories that will help spark the imagination in any child.
The Little Engine That Could is a children’s book written by Watty Piper in 1943. It tells the story of an engine named Thomas who is small, but he tries to do his best for his owner, Mr. Percival. In the end, he succeeds and proves that even though you are small, you can still make a difference!
This book teaches children two important lessons: 1) persistence 2) believing in yourself even when others doubt your abilities or think it impossible for them (or anyone else) to achieve their goals/goals
In Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak’s children’s novel about Max, who is sent to bed without supper because he has been bad, imagines what his life would be like if he were king of the wild things. Max creates “a land where all was joy and laughter.” He creates a kingdom filled with animals who are kind and polite, who listen carefully when others speak, and who treat each other with respect.
Max is also honest with himself: “I’m not a bad boy!” he tells himself as he sits alone in his room on Christmas Eve. “It’s just that everyone else doesn’t like me very much.” When you read this book aloud with your child or child-in-law (or even just read it aloud yourself), ask them what they think about being good or bad–and then talk about how important it is for people to tell the truth regardless of how others treat them!
Charlotte’s Web is a book about friendship, perseverance and kindness. It tells the story of Wilbur the pig and his friend, Charlotte A. Cavatica, who are both born on the same day but in different locations.
Charlotte A., a spider who lives in a barn with her mother named Fern (who is also Wilbur’s mother) refuses to eat anything other than apples since she doesn’t think they’re good enough for her family or herself. However one day when Wilbur comes across an abandoned pig named Templeton Peck he decides that he wants nothing more than to become friends with him because they have so much in common including their love for animals and books!
The two boys become best friends as well as brothers over time – even though it wasn’t easy at first because Templeton didn’t understand why Wilbur kept calling himself “Wilbur” instead of just plain old “Wil.”
The Penderwicks is a book about a family of four sisters who go on adventures together. The sisters are bright-eyed and bushy tailed, each with their own personality–and they’ll have your kids laughing from start to finish! There’s nothing better than reading this book with your children (or even just yourself).
The Penderwicks has been around since 1974, which means it was written over 40 years ago. This is one of those books that seems timeless in nature; its themes of friendship, family and love resonate across generations because they speak so deeply to our own hearts. You can’t go wrong with this one!
These books help kids learn about the importance of perseverance.
In the next few minutes, we’re going to talk about different types of perseverance. You might be surprised by what you learn.
These books are about not giving up and persevering through hardship, making the most of your talents, being creative and being yourself.
We hope you were inspired by these books, and we think they are a great choice for any child. They all have a positive message about perseverance, and even though some may seem very scary at first, they help build up kids’ confidence.
