September is an important time for our children. The time of year when they go back to school, start in a new class and are beginning to learn so much throughout the year.
It is important that we are also teaching them how to be positive individuals and how to learn to cope when life gets tough.
I’ve pulled together some of my favourite messages that can be found within popular children’s literature.
Why not have a sit with your little thinker and have a read of these. See what they say about what they read in these excepts. You’ll be surprised what you yourself will learn from the mind of your child.
1: “Promise me you’ll remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.”
– AA Milne, Winnie The Pooh
2: “Watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”

5: “The moment where you doubt you can fly, you cease forever being able to do it.”
