Big Kid

20 Of The Best Children Books To Re-Read As An Adult

By  | 

Harriet The Spy


This is a great New York City story about a curious 11-year-old who sometimes writes down observations about family and friends in her journal. Unfortunately, the journal ends up falling into the wrong hands, and then suddenly all of her interpretations are laid bare. As an adult, there’s a thing or two we can learn from Harriet. One of them is that we must always remain true to ourselves, and there may be an instance in our lives when we may have to lie to spare someones’ feelings, and that’s okay. Also, as you re-read this book, there will be a lot of stuff that you didn’t pick up on when you a kid; one probably being the marijuana references. Crazy right?!
