The Long History of Little Golden Books

You know them by the glinting foil spine. That yellow foil edge lining children’s books is the hallmark of Little Golden Books, the kid lit franchise that’s been part of childhood for generations. The slim books with cardboard covers and endearing illustrations have entertained young readers since they were first introduced in World War II. While readers may recognize the cover and looping script of the imprint’s title, few know that Little Golden Books helped make book ownership more accessible for kids and their families.

I have a few of those that are or have gone to a friend's kids who have trouble reading. They like the books.

I was thinking about them only 2 days ago...My daughter who is 61 now had heaps of them .I used to sit on the front porch from the time she was 3 and read them to her for hours.By the time she was 5 people thought she could read, she had memorized so many of them...She even fooled her kindergarten teachers for a while.
I just received a video of my great grand daughter who is only 2 ½ doing exactly the same thing with nursery rhyme books.

really!!!  I thought everyone knew what they were.   As a child, you really miss out  :-) I read them to my children, to my grand-daughter when she was young. Wish I had kept them now.

Mother never read to me. The only thing I can remember reading as a kid was the Sears X-mas catalog!
