Children's books, are worth a read for adults
Aldous Huxley said: "It is not good to become an adult, without reading all the children's books." We agree with him and believe that you can catch up at any age. Because really good children's books are written not only and not so much for children. They all really love, friendship and magic, so the adult is also very useful to read and re-read them.
This review contains just such a book today, from the height of his age, each read in a new way.
Lewis Carroll "Alice in Wonderland"
Perhaps the best book in the genre of absurd, so beloved by several generations. Many even believe that the mad story of a girl, failed the rabbit hole, designed exclusively to adults: too much in it logical, philosophical and mathematical "problems".
Tove Jansson's "All about the Moomins"
Surprisingly, the stories about the charming Moomin like growing up with us. Reread today, they do not seem to you stupid, naive or childish. You will find in them what you need right now, and for you - good quiet wisdom, a sense of love and security.
Mark Twain "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer"
The book, which will remind you that you can "bend" the world for themselves, with only a bucket of whitewash and a brush in the arsenal. Startups, entrepreneurs and businesses, take note. And it's a great story for anyone who bored with life and wants to return to a carefree childhood and the spirit of adventure.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery's "The Little Prince"
If you realize with horror that became too old - stopped to look at the starry sky and ask questions, we began to measure life figures stopped loving flowers - re-read "The Little Prince". This is one of those books that are able to return to the person himself.
Pamela Travers 'Mary Poppins'
This fairy tale - not just a journey into a surreal, magical world. This is - a priceless reminder to everyone that we create our own reality, themselves bring miracles in life - or not to bring, depending on their own choice. She says that the main thing - do not be afraid of change and believe in yourself. Everyone who wants to change, be sure to read.
Alan Milne, "Winnie the Pooh and all-all-all"
Sometimes it really wise advice can only give one with sawdust in his head. Behind the apparent simplicity stories about teddy bear and his friends hides a whole philosophy, and some scientists as an example of Winnie the Pooh even describe the essence of Taoism. We have so far to go do not call: just read, remember and enjoy childhood.
Alexander Volkov, "The Wizard of Oz"
The heroes of the Russian version of "The Wizard of Oz", we easily recognize half of their friends, and themselves. We also underestimate yourself, lie to the good and looking for a yellow brick road. The girls always want to imagine the magic shoes.
Astrid Lindgren's "Pippi Longstocking"
This book of naschego list - only for children, and enjoy it for all children from 6 to 86 years. In it - now invincible mischief that causes the eyes to burn with delight. Concentrate optimism and joy of life. And another reason to think - as if I was an hour in the old bucket turned?
JRR Tolkien's "The Hobbit, or There and Back Again"
"The Hobbit", topped the list of religious books of the twentieth century - is not the usual product. This is an alternate world in which you are traveling willy nilly start to understand better their own lives, in their relationship with the surrounding reality. Maybe this is the secret of ageless Tolkien saga?
Nikolay Nosov "Dunno on the Moon"
Nosovskaya tale with elements of fantasy economists called the most sensible and affordable textbook economics. From it you can very well understand that this advertising company, the bursting of the bank, selling newspapers, strike, unemployment, stock market, what market relations. In general, it is not a children's story.
Valentine Oseeva "Dink"
On the surface - the history of restless cocky girl and her family, childhood friendship and adventure, but deeper - a story about ordinary people living in difficult times, the ideas and ideals, in which are so firmly believed, and that sooner or later all the same destroyed. Good, interesting and a great book, graphically any history textbook telling, if somewhat one-sided, of the years of the revolution.
Joel Harris 'Uncle Remus'
When we read these fairy tales as a child, you notice only a cunning Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox poor fellow, savvy Bratza turtles and other animals, but with age we offer the narrator - the infinitely wise Uncle Remus, in which each of us can learn kindness and tolerance.
James Barrie "Peter Pan"
How is it that we have forgotten how to fly? Why do children know this sensation of flying, straightness and depth of feeling, love and lack of shame for her, and for adults - no longer exists? Is it possible to remain a child forever - and is it necessary? "Peter Pan" - one of those tales that become adults piercing revelation. It is impossible to break, and after reading it is impossible to dismiss.
Hans Christian Andersen, "The Wild Swans"
Generally Andersen - not a children's writer. Many of his tales are gloomy and tragic, and read them better when the picture of the world has already been formed. But the story of Eliza and her brothers - a hymn to the all-conquering love and kindness. It is useful at any age.
