Would my childhood have been complete without at least one Little Golden Books with the iconic gold spines? Maybe, but I don’t like to consider that possibility.
Who hasn’t read through The Poky Little Puppy without asking their parents for a puppy of their own? Remember Scuffy the Tugboat and The Saggy Baggy Elephant and Richard Scarry’s Best Little Word Book Ever? My brothers and I read through those books until there were more pages missing than not. And then, we read them some more.
These excellent books are still capturing the hearts and minds of children 68 years after the first 12 titles were released. Need a gift idea for a small child? You can’t go wrong with these. Although, you may want to wait until he/she is past the “Let’s Rip All the Pages Out of Every Book” stage. Too bad the titles are no longer $0.25 a piece.
Now, while my childhood would certainly have been less colourful without my Little Golden Books with the iconic gold spines, I’m quite certain my Cousin Andrea’s childhood would have been absolutely incomplete without at least one Little Golden Books with the iconic gold spines.
Just look at that face!
