The other day, I suddenly had a thought about some books from my childhood. I remember when I was younger, I was touched by the powerful messages that some books conveyed. The two books that I can remember to this day are Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree and Robert N. Munsch’s Love You Forever.
I really liked these two books for the deeper meaning that they had. They both had the storyline of loving others unconditionally, no matter what they do or do not do for you in return. I remember I might have let a few tears shed when I read these books; they were simple yet complex in their own nature.
I don’t keep up with children’s books these days, but I feel like these two books in particular should always be timeless and part of any child’s bookshelf, no matter what generation they are in.
