Classic (93 of 365)

Recognize these, by chance? It's a bookshelf full of Little Golden Books! "The Poky Little Puppy" and "The Little Red Hen" were two of my favorite books when I was a little girl. So, for me, these are classic children's books.

They've been around since 1942 and have an interesting story behind them. I had no idea that many of the now famous children's book authors also created, or illustrated, Little Golden Books.

I loved all those little golden books growing up! What a perfect choice for the theme! Many of those were also my boys favorites too!

My children grew up with these books. So of course I recognized the photo *once you told me what it was*!! Otherwise, I thought it was a drape and I would see why you were taking photos of drapes!! lol

You couldn't have found a better fit for the theme if you tried! Nice job!

Those were the first books I remember reading! I loved "Rabbit and His Friends" and "The Ugly Duckling". I wonder where those books are now? ;-)
