Remember all those wonderful old movie and TV classics books that Little Golden Books published? Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa's Workshop, Frosty the Snowman, Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Huckleberry Hound, The Bullwinkle Show, Yogi Bear, The Flintstones, and Bozo the Clown. Little Golden Books have printed all the Disney stories in Little Golden Books as well. A time line of Little Golden Books is like a time line of 20th century history! Little Golden Books have taken us through an era and continue to do so.
And what about all the delightful Little Golden Book authors and illustrators? Richard Scarry gave us Little Golden Bookslike Color Cats and My Very Best Little Word Book Ever. I've loved the ephemeral artwork of Eloise Wilkin, a regular Little Golden Book illustrator and author since I was a toddler. Her Prayers for Children and My Puppy are timeless.
Garth Williams, known for his Little House on the Prairie book series illustrations, has lent his pen to many Little Golden Book classics, such a The Very Best Home for Me. Dr. Dan the Bandage Man, 1951, actually came with two of Johnson & Johnson's new Band-Aid Brand Adhesive Bandages (remember when they came with a little red pull string?) Can you believe that Little Golden Books have been read and loved by children for over 65 years now?
How about some free printable Little Golden Book coloring pages? You can print Pokey Puppy, Pat the Bunny, Tootle, The Saggy Baggy Elephant, The Tawny Scrawny Lion and The Shy Little Kitten. You can also print about sixty different coloring pages, connect-the-dot, reading, counting and puzzles, based upon Little Golden Book characters like Rudolph, Pokey Puppy and some of the educational Little Golden Books.
