Don't be fooled by the team at Penyo Pal,
we aren't really adults at all,
We're just big kids who are really tall,
We reminisce of when we were small,
When we began to read, to wonder, and to dream
so we decided here at the Penyo Pal team,
to share our favourite words that carried us through,
and we want to share them with your kids, and with you.
(Poem attempted by Jane Wu, Chief Happiness Officer)
We draw some of our best inspiration while thumbing through our favourite childhood books… These quotes made us feel happy, they made us inspired, and they kept us motivated our 5-year-old selves motivated when we were learning how to read. We loved these quotes, and we still do, and today we wanted to share them with you. So enjoy a lazy afternoon in the sunshine, or a cup of warm milk before bed as you share these valuable thoughts with your kids, grandkids or kids at heart.
