Many apologies. It was an honest mistake. In my country, there are many gods, representing all aspects of life. Well, when you think of it that way, I suppose I could be considered the patron of personalized chili hallucinations. I wish I had some higher calling, something more fulfilling than just guiding mankind to enlightenment. Perhaps I should explore the natural world, follow in the footsteps of the proud and regal creatures whose form I take. Wait a minute! Who says I can't expand my spirit animal-ness and appear in hallucinations of all kinds?
The Wild Side (The Wild Side, #1) by R.K. Lilley
Oh man, I'd love to hallucinate a coyote! Normally I just get some version of whatever animal cracker I've eaten last. Sigh, now I understand why my cousin chose to be a spirit of the wind. But I still think his paintings are terrible.
Tutorial - Level I recently read The Lorax for the first time and realized what a great lesson it provided. I find it very interesting that you include 2 Dr. Seuss books in this list. Of course, good books, I mean!
This is admittedly a story for older children, ages and up or so, but the narrative is beautifully executed by Dahl and it is engaging on many levels for an audience of any age. The bachelor decides to master the power himself over a period of many years and then sets out to use it to make the world a better place. It has an ingenious story-within-a-story structure that makes it a great re-read, as well. Highly recommended! This is a great list. I have read many of these since childhood and now read them to my kids.
There are some great lessons to be learned in some of the simplest forms. When I was a teacher at the holidays I turned my classroom door into the cover of The Giving Tree and cut out apples from red construction paper. Then I read the book to my class and we discussed what gifts they had that they could share with people. The gifts had to be immaterial things such as teaching others how to do something they are good at, being patient with bothersome siblings etc.
It did make all the kids laugh. I loved teaching that lesson, it was an oasis of calm in the elementary school holiday frenzy. And it put my students in a calmer mindset. I kept extra apples out so they could post additional gifts. As a parent of a 5 and 3 year old and business consultant, I just have to say that this is brilliant on so many levels. Thank you. I was glad to share it with my daughter when she needed a recommendation for her book report. Jonathan, Thanks for the post! Love each of these books. Great thing is any child or adult can get them at the public library.
Very creative post! What a great selection of books.

Awesome picks! I even have a copy I photocopied version that I have hand-colored — coloring in the story has been a wonderful exercise to help me relax into change! I have been trying to think of Friday book reads to read to my classes, I teach integrated physics and chemistry, and this list is an awesome place to start. What does it have to with Physics and Chemistry? Everything and nothing! These books are bringing back happy memories.
I loved The Lorax at primary school, and I remember seeing the movie version. I passed it out at a couple of executive classes negotiations and sales that I taught a number of years ago. Nothing explains the value of flexibility like that book. Love all the adds, gang! Especially if you are a little girl, especially if you are a woman, especially if you are male and understand that girls are still being sold a bill of goods that ultimately creates mental limitations on who they are and what they can make of their lives.
Elizabeth is my hero! Life is, after all, so very simple. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it.

It all became fresh and new in another language. Great list! A lovely post, Jonathan. Brevity is powerful because wisdom rarely needs many words, and sometimes, none at all. Great Post Jonathan! Love it! Another classic is the Lion in the Meadow — about imagination and the power of stories.. Such a great idea — always, the hardest stories to write are the very simple ones, and kids stories rock. As an early childhood teacher and writer, there area many titles I could Azeri this stellar list. The firs few that come to mind are:.
Ish- the value of creativity cannot be underestimated. Amazing Grace- ddeterminatiin defies any label someone else might give you. Too many books to add after teaching for so long but…one that is wonderful is The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. Wonderful and carry tissues! Very great list you have here.

Thanks for sharing this. If you have not read it, get it! It is a must and has been a magical learning experience for my kids. I love this! But these are simplistic stories….

And for learning to pay attention to the small details, any photo book by Tana Hoban. And for the importance of developing your own sense of style in management and life, any of the Max the Dog Poet books by Maira Kalman. My favorite book was the Pussy Cat Tiger.
