I just saw The Greatest Showman. Talk about inspirational! If you got half as much inspiration from The Greatest Showman as I did, you will fall in love with these inspirational books!
Some of my favorite Inspirational Children’s Books:
I left The Greatest Showman so inspired! I left wanting to conquer the world. This book can inspire, too. This is such a cute story of a bear that wants to read. This is the perfect inspiring story for any young reader. Light the fire in your young reader and inspire them to read for life!
Scribble & Author is an awesome story about writing a story. It can also remind us that we are the writers of our story. We can choose how our live ends up, just like P.T. Barnum did seen in The Greatest Showman. Keep inspiring others in your life and you will live an inspired life.
This awesome adventure series is the perfect story for anyone that has self-doubt or is insecure about their abilities. Although this is a series, each story can easily stand alone. Learn new life-saving skills while reading this simple, yet powerful chapter book. Perfect for 2nd-4th graders or even awesome for a read-aloud starting at 6 or 7 years old.
Inspirational Books by Michelle Nelson-Schmidt:
Before I get into the books, this author, much like The Greatest Showman is awe-inspiring.
Michelle Nelson- Schmidt is one amazing writer, illustrator, and friend. She oozes inspiration just like the songs in The Greatest Showman are my new workout (or cleaning) mojo theme! Here are some of my favorite stories written by Michelle Nelson-Schmidt.
Bob is a Unicorn
In this story by Michelle Nelson-Schmidt, Bob is a little different, just like many of the characters in The Greatest Showman! Bob thinks he’s a unicorn, but the other animals just don’t see it. Just like in the movie, some people didn’t see the excitement of P.T. Barnum’s circus. This story teaches to be who you are despite what others see in you or say about you. It also teaches to be passionate and creative.
Dog and Mouse
If you’re looking for an adorable book about friendship, Dog and Mouse is for you! The character, Dog, searches and searches for the perfect companion. Mouse helps him look. Throughout their friendship search, Dog realizes Mouse is who he was searching for all along! This story will bring a tear to your eyes and a smile to your face at the same time! A true treasure!
Other Inspirational Books (with Plushes):
I’m probably going to end up seeing and buying The Greatest Showman. Just like that movie, this is a book to read again and again! This uplifting story is one of Michelle’s best! It’s great for young and old alike. Cordelia believes she can fly and has all the confidence in the world until others tell her she’s can’t. Watch Cordelia pick herself up and prove everyone wrong! Cordelia would make the perfect graduation gift and is a MUST-HAVE for any home!
Jonathan James and the Whatif Monster
Another book by Nelson-Scmidt is Jonathan James and the Whatif Monster. Jonathan James , like so many children, doubts himself at every turn. He’s constantly questioning himself, or the Whatif Monster does it for him. The Whatif Monster asks, What if you fall? What if they laugh? Jonathan turns the negative language around to see that life can be full of surprises, good and bad. This is the perfect story for the chronic worrier in all of us!
