What Children's Book Actually Changed Your Life?

Happy Children's Book Week!

Books can change your life at any age.

But some of the most influential books may actually be the ones we read as children.

Like Dr. Seuss' The Lorax, which taught us about caring for the environment. Maybe it was the starting point of your degree in environmental studies.

Or Lois Lowry's The Giver, which taught us about the importance of memory and individuality. Maybe it challenged the way you viewed society.

Or maybe Margaret Wise Brown's The Runaway Bunny helped you better understand a parent's love.

Tell us about which children's book changed your life and ~why~ in the comments below. You could be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post!
