Well, it's probably not the direction you are intending, but
a truly foundational work is:

_Green Eggs and Ham_ By Dr. Seuss, ISBN: 0394800168.

The fundamental message of this book is the first
introduction of many people to the empirical method.
The hero didn't like green eggs and ham until he
actually *tried* them. Then he liked them.
