The Golden Books are recommended at Ages 3 and up. I found a variety of stories, some classic and others new that any child can enjoy. I recommend these. They are obviously short and colorful and if they are like the originals, they will will have hard board covers that will last.
How Do Penguins Play? (Little Golden Book) by Elizabeth Dombey
This playful rhyming Little Golden Book asks, "How do penguins play?" Children will delight in watching bear cubs, seals, penguins, monkeys, and other animal friends frolicking joyfully with each other. Adorable pastel illustrations show these animals playing king-of-the-hill, keep away, and other fun and familiar games.
The Poky Little Puppy by Janette Sebring Lowrey
One of the original 12 Little Golden Books, The Poky Little Puppy has sold nearly 15 million copies since 1942, making it one of the most popular children’s books of all time. Now this curious little puppy is ready to win the hearts and minds of a new generation of kids.
Remember these classics?
I miss these beloved classics. I think these stories have stood the test of time and children today can enjoy it. More likely both parent and child will have a great time reading them together. There are tons of children's books out there. For me, when I think back to my childhood, books like Goodnight Moon and The Little Golden Books comes to mind first. When I think of the best books for children, what books to start young and new readers with, what my own favorite reads were, this series is one I definitely recommend.
