10 Inspirational Children’s Book Quotes

Have you ever had a really bad day with your kids and felt like you were the worst parent on the earth?  It happens to me sometimes. But somehow, at night, when I read my children a bedtime story, I just feel so much better about my day.  Books have hidden inspiration in them and sometimes those little words can make a bad day great again. I have collected some quotes from children’s books that I either say to myself or to my kids to help us through rough moments. I hope they can help you too!
