Once upon a time, there was a castle at the edge of the earth where the most beautiful princess lived.

This is how a good story starts and you, as kids, would venture into the fantasy world and start dreaming. You loved children’s books and even today when you are an adult, the world of fairytales is still fascinating.

Children’s books are not just about fantastic and magical situations and characters, are more than that. Children’s books are teaching and showing us the importance of love, courage, hope, life, and happiness.

“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”― J.K.Rowling: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

We are often sad and feel like nothing will ever change, the situation won’t get better. But this is never the case.

I’m sure you often hear that you need to see the good parts in a bad situation. It seems impossible to do to it when you are going and feeling these intense emotions of sadness or even angriness.

It’s not impossible. You can see the good parts and be an optimist. Try to be grateful for every little thing when you are sad. Step by step you will be able to find a positive part that can turn an ugly experience into a learning situation.
Life has good and bad. You know what they say: just by seeing the bad, you learn to appreciate the good.

“I know you’ll be kind… and clever… and bold. And the bigger your heart, the more it will hold. When nights are black and when days are gray — you’ll be brave and be bright so no shadows can stay. And become anybody that you’d like to be. And then I’ll look at you and you’ll look at me and I’ll love you, whoever you’ve grown up to be.” — Emily Winfield Martin: The Wonderful Things You Will Be

Sometimes you just need a little motivation and this is the perfect quote.

You are strong, brave, kind, smart and you will achieve all the things you want in life. In your journey to success, you will be encouraged and helped by the ones that love you.

Everything will always end up good in the end and you will thrive from any bad situation.

“But how about my courage?” asked the Lion anxiously. “You have plenty of courage, I am sure,” answered Oz. “All you need is confidence in yourself. There is no living thing that is not afraid when it faces danger. The True courage is in facing danger when you are afraid, and that kind of courage you have in plenty.” — L. Frank Baum: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

It’s normal to be scared and feel that you are not brave enough.

Most of the time when you think about a situation where you will need the courage to get out of, it may seem impossible to end up well. You have all kinds of fears and you imagine the worst thing that can happen. You are just afraid.

Believe in yourself, you are strong and brave enough to face anything. It’s normal to be afraid. If you are afraid it doesn’t mean you don’t have courage. Even if you are afraid you can still have the courage it takes to make it out of a scary and threatening experience. Confidence is the key to courage.

“When someone is crying, of course, the noble thing to do is to comfort them. But if someone is trying to hide their tears, it may also be noble to pretend you do not notice them.” — Lemony Snicket: A Series of Unfortunate Events

Such a deep message is hidden in a children’s book.

I’m sure you or somebody you know have been in both of the situations. Sometimes you need and want to be hugged and sometimes you need space and don’t want to be seen crying.

If you see someone crying, you need to understand the nonverbal communication others are transmitting and respect their desire. It’s a small thing that can mean the world to anybody that is going through this.

“But then I realized, what do they really know? This is MY idea, I thought. No one knows it like I do. And it’s okay if it’s different, and weird, and maybe a little crazy.” — Kobi Yamada: What Do You Do With an Idea?

You don’t have to follow the norms of normality defined by society.

People are often seen as strange and crazy because are different from others, but they are just different not strange. You will attract people’s attention because you are different, but that is not a bad thing.

Do what makes you happy, make your craziest ideas come true, and live life the way you want to.
Think outside the box, be different, and don’t let others tell you to follow the unwritten rules of ordinariness.

“Why did you do all this for me?’ he asked. ‘I don’t deserve it. I’ve never done anything for you.’ ‘You have been my friend,’ replied Charlotte. ‘That in itself is a tremendous thing.” — E.B. White: Charlotte’s Web

Being somebody’s friend means more than any material thing or present. Sometimes we get lost and focus more on the materialistic things because the world seems to value them more than anything.

It’s not true. Humans are social creatures. We need to talk, be tougher, and feel a connection with others in order to survive.

As a friend, you are there for each other during good and hard times. Friends share a strong connection governed by feelings of love, respect, and loyalty. Being a good friend is the most beautiful and important gift you can offer to somebody.

“A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” — Roald Dahl: The Twits

The behavior of a person is the one responsible for how that person’s appearance is seen by others.

Somebody that has a cold heart can never be seen as a beautiful looking person. Being a good person is your most valuable quality. Having a good heart defines your physical appearance and it defines you as a person and your life.

A smile and a gesture of kindness will make you a good, beautiful, and lovely person. The physical appearance is dictated by the person’s heart.

“There’s no place like home.” —Lyman Frank Baum: The Wizard of Oz

Home doesn’t mean the house where you live or your family does. A home is not an object. When you are away for a long time and you want to get home, you don’t miss the building, you miss your loved ones.

Home means family, friends, along with the feelings of love and happiness you feel when you are around them. Home is not a place, home is family.

There is a known expression: nowhere you will ever feel like at home.
No matter where you go or what you do, there will never be a better place like the one where are your family and friends.

“Well, maybe it started that way. As a dream, but doesn’t everything? Those buildings. These lights. This whole city. Somebody had to dream about it first. And maybe that is what I did. I dreamed about coming here, but then I did it.” — Roald Dahl: James and the Giant Peach

Everything started as a dream that will come true in the end. You were your parent’s dream of having a child.

It’s important to dream and hope for better from a young age because this is how life works. You dream about going to school, having a boyfriend, buying a house, going on a vacation.

When the time is right, your dream will come true, so never stop dreaming. Life is made of dreams.

Final Thoughts

They lived happily ever after. The end!

That’s how most of the stories you read when you were a child ended. These words were magical and still are.

When you were a child you didn’t realize the true meaning of a book’s message. These books are filled with quotes that have the purpose of making you believe in yourself and dream big.

Children’s books teach you the importance of love, family, friends, kindness, and help you become a strong, brave, and successful person.

In the end:

Books are a uniquely portable magic. — Stephen King
