They say that you are truly an adult once you have purchased your very first place of dwelling. If you are one of those lucky enough to buy a condo in The Fort that was for sale, then you are truly a responsible adult. Go reward yourself with a nice glass of wine while relaxing in your own abode.
Life is certainly good; but you have to admit that there are passing days when you just missed your carefree childhood days that you know you are never getting back.
Good thing, though, that there are ways for you to bring out the inner child you have, like reading a good book or two. Here are four children’s books that you can still enjoy as an adult.
The Little Prince

The Little Prince is a classic children’s story that you will love to read even as an older person. It is written by the French writer, Antoine de Saint-Exupery, and was published in the year 1943.
The story is centered between its two main characters: the pilot and the young prince. The young prince was able to meet the pilot in a desert after falling to earth from an asteroid. Together, they try to find a way out of the barren place.
It focuses on the theme which applauds being childlike and creative rather than being too keen on certain realities of life.
The book features several illustrations from the author himself, which will surely pique your interest when it comes to reading it.

Madeline is a series of books written and illustrated by Ludwig Bemelmans. It was written and published between the years 1953 and 1961. Since then, it became a famous media franchise.
This series is about a group of school girls who goes into a Catholic boarding school in Paris. Its main character, Madeline, may be the smallest amongst her peers, but she sure is the bravest of them all.
Simple plot and themes have been applied to its stories. Most of them appeal to both young and old readers.
Where the Wild Things Are

This book has been recognized as one of the most distinguished picture book for children in America. Its author and illustrator, Maurice Sendak, even won the Caldecott Medal in 1964 for his work.
It is a relatively short story that focuses on Max, a young boy who pretended to be a wolf by wearing a costume. The plot starts when his bedroom magically transforms into a jungle. He, then, ends up sailing to an island where the “Wild Things” are living. His adventures certainly do not stop there, but you have to read the book to find out what comes next.

Mary Poppins is another book series in this list. P. L. Travers wrote the book and published them in 1934 to 1988.
Just like its famous film adaptation, the story centers on its main character, Mary Poppins, who is a magical English nanny. She ended up taking care of the children in the Banks’ household. Various adventures and mishaps follow her until the end of the series.
If you think you know already what happens in the books because of the film, then think again because the movie is not exactly a faithful adaptation of the whole story. Find out what truly happens in its written pages.
Do not think you are too old for these books because a good tale is always timeless and can transcend into the varying ages of the readers. These classic stories can surely satisfy the child in you.
