I'm not crazy about stories that focus on how much mom's love their kids, or how much parents think about their kids, and all that other mushy stuff. Of course we love our kids..duh. To me, those books are intended to please the parents, not the kids. I prefer books that tell a fun and engaging story; something with a life lessons. The old classics are popular because they do just that. Same thing with video many of o games, family dinner, sports, movies, trips, etc... These things impact people similar to an engaging story; thus creating a memory.
