If you tell me you didn’t grown up with Little Golden Books, I am going to ask you if you even had a childhood. (For the record, my favorite was The Poky Little Puppy.) We owned a bunch, I borrowed others from the library; they are symbolic of my early love of reading, to me.
And they’re still around! Today you can snap up a few boxed set deals: Amazon has the Disney Classic Little Golden Book Library for $13.99 and the Marvel Little Golden Book Library for $13.49 (both are normally $25). If you’re willing to spend a few more bucks, they also have the Star Wars Little Golden Book Library for $17.99, too.
Remember when my kids were little and I used to buy multiples of stuff for birthday parties and baby showers and such, and put them in the gift closet? This is the sort of thing I would buy.
