30 Lessons for Adults from Kid Books

If you read my first post in my Countdown to 30 Series, then you know that I love to read and get a little over-involved in the books I love.

Even though I am turning thirty soon, which means I am becoming a real adult (not a the fake adult I’ve been for the past 12 years) does not mean I am going to give up my love for children’s literature.

In honor of my inner child, here are 30 quotes from children’s literature that contain messages, lessons, or inspiration for adults. Save them to an inspiration board on Pinterest. Refer back to them whenever you need a pick-me-up. Words are magical–and these words are some of the most magical.

For a quick reference, you can find all my Countdown posts below:
