About the Author

MARGARET WISE BROWN, best known as the author of Goodnight Moon, wrote many bestselling Golden Books, including The Golden Egg Book, Home for a Bunny, and The Color Kittens. KATHRYN JACKSON penned hundreds of lively, witty stories for Golden Books, including Tawny Scrawny Lion and Nurse Nancy.
 
RICHARD SCARRY, one of the best-loved children’s book creators ever, began his career in the late 1940s at Golden Books. His 1963 book I Am a Bunny is an icon. ELOISE WILKIN is known for her beautiful paintings of cherubic children and scenes of nature in the dozens of Golden Books she illustrated over decades. Caldecott Medalists ALICE AND MARTIN PROVENSEN began to illustrate books together in the mid-1940s, many of them for Golden Books, including The Fuzzy Duckling and The Color Kittens. GARTH WILLIAMS brought to life some of the best-loved children’s books of the twentieth century, including Charlotte’s Web and the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. BOB STAAKE is the creator of many books for children, including Bluebird; The Red Lemon, a New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Book; and The Donut Chef.

This is a wonderful little set of Golden Books. My 3 year is really enjoying it. We have quite a few Golden Books already. Fortunately, we only had one duplicate (I am Bunny), but that is okay, because the duplicate is actually in a board book version. My 10 month is now enjoying that. I grew up being read, and reading Golden Books. I love the nostalgia, and they are great value. The set contains the following 12 books: The Poky Little Puppy, I Can Fly, The Sailor Dog, Scuffy the Tugboat, Wonders of Nature, The Three Bears, A Day at the Seashore, The Blue Book of Fairy Tales, I’m a Truck, I Am a Bunny, The Whispering Rabbit, and Katie the Kitten. They come packaged in a nice cardboard case, and include a poster with history each Little Golden Book contained in the set. I highly recommend this set. It is a great value, and the selection is great. If you love reading to your kids this will be a nice addition to your book collection.

I wanted these books for my grandson and I to ''read'' together. I was actually disappointed in the lightweight quality of the pages, but I kept them anyway. I also expected the selection of titles to be more familiar to me.
I perhaps had unreasonable expectations, as I am judging them against the Little Golden Books that I had as a child 55+ years ago. I still have those books and checking the weight of the pages and found it much more substantial than this new set. I also looked at the Little Golden Books available at my local store and they pages, although not as heavy as my old books, are heavier than this new set of books.
I kept the set, anyway and will prob just wait til grandson is a little older and has better dexterity to ''read'' them with him.
From here on out I will purchase locally so I know exactly what I am getting. My childhood books are too fragile for grandson, but his mama enjoyed them when she was little, as did I. I must have read then hundreds of times!

For the poky little puppy, there''s a sentence said "chocolate custard for dessert" which I''m concerned to give this information to my kid because dogs are not supposed to eat chocolate ! it''s poisonous to them.

And the whispering rabbit, I don''t like the small text part. It''s very hard to read ! I know it''s supposed to be a whispering part for the story but at least it should not be that small / thin.

Good books, very thin paper
Reviewed in the United States on April 25, 2018
Good books, but very thin pages - not the quality I was expecting and remembered from my childhood. I will look in used book stores or goodwill for older printings of these going forward.

I received the books last night. It was already late past my kids bedtime (4 and 6 years old) and planned on reading just one of these. I wasn’t sure how my 6 year old would be interested and at first he wasn’t and complained but then i started reading one .. and he enjoyed it so much he kept giving me book after book to read for him. He loved the “Nature” one . These are sweet sweet books . We read three last night even though he wanted more. My 4 year old unfortunately doesn’t listen to any book I read or at least he is listening and playing simultaneously. He won’t sit focused.

All the titles in this box set are printed in China on very flimsy and lightweight paper. They are noticeably different from the regular Little Golden Books. Even the slip case is not very nice; it''s cheap low-density fiberboard with a fake cloth glued over it. For a box set you would usually expect higher overall quality or a savings over buying them individually, but in this case they''re lower quality and it''s actually cheaper to buy them individually. Also, the Katie the Kitten "Exclusive" is available to buy separately so it''s not even worth it to buy it for that. I''d skip this and just buy the titles you want.
