Last week we said goodbye to Nicole and Cara, our awesome summer interns. But before she left, intern Nicole conducted a literary survey: She asked NPR staffers to share some of their favorite books from when they were kids that still speak to them as grown-ups. Here’s what they sent back:

Arts editor Tom Cole says his favorite book, “being the slightly melancholic person that I am,” is The Big Little Book of Happy Sadness by Colin Thompson: 

It’s about an orphaned boy who finds love and a sense of purpose in a three-legged dog at the shelter. The drawings are wonderful.

Lynette Clemetson says she absolutely loves Zen Shorts by Jon Muth:

It’s a story about three siblings and their individual interactions with a wise Panda named Stillwater. A general theme through the tales in the book is keeping things in perspective and letting go of things you cannot change. I find it particularly soothing during major transitions at work and in life, and I often read it to my children as much for my own benefit as for theirs.

Arts reporter Neda Ulaby says Frederick by Leo Lionni is “an early lesson about the value of creative capital.” The book is about a mouse named who, instead of collecting food and supplies to store away for the winter, collects rays of sun, the colors of the rainbow and words. 

Code Switch’s Shereen Meraji had a lot to learn from Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery:

Anne (with an E) is a smart, outspoken orphan with a bit of a temper. I saw a lot of myself in her and she made me feel like it was just fine to be the quirky girl (now woman) I am. Whenever I’m at a crossroads in my adult life, I pick up Anne of Green Gables for a little inspiration. She reminds me that there ain’t nothin’ wrong with having an over-active imagination, speaking your mind and being a bit dramatic, in the process – despite what your bosses may say!

And finally (for today), fellow tumblrer Petra Mayer says the original Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs taught her"that as AWESOME as it is when hot dogs fall from the sky, it does kind of make a mess."

Stay tuned for more tomorrow!
