Everything I need to know I learned from a Little Golden Book

Diane Muldrow
Random House
ISBN: 9780307977618           RRP: $9.99

The Little Golden Books had a major impact on at least one generation of readers. Here is a title which is a perfect novelty gift for mothers of that generation. Not strictly a children’s book, this is a humorous personal development guide drawn from the pages of over 70 years of publishing this iconic series. Each page is taken from one of the many titles available; to that the editor has whimsically added a feel-good affirmation. My favourite? Sweatpants are bad for morale; put on something nice! Ah, nostalgia. Definitely a book for all to share, bring back memories and keep in the family collection - with gold foil spine of course.
