After I did my post about Disney's Three Little Pigs, it set me to thinking about my love for Little Golden Books. I have written about them numerous times here on our blog.
I have loved Little Golden Books ever since I was a little girl. Haven't we all? And they remain a wonderful choice for your child or grandchild. I still haven't determined which one the little boy is reading in the ad below:
I collect them, but I can't buy them all, so for a while now I have mainly focused on the Disney ones. My first great reference source was this magazine, Tomart's Disneyana.
As you can see in the example below, the pages inside feature color pictures of every single one! An invaluable guide for a collector.
Here is a picture of just a few of my Disney Little Golden Books:
Steve Santi's books are a wonderful reference, as well - and some of his books include Wonder Books and Elf Books too, (which I also love!) , and of course, all of the Little Golden Books, not just the Disney ones. I got mine on Amazon:
I got this huge volume in 2003 - it has 560 pages:
But this little (4&1/4 by 5&1/4 by 1 inches) guide book may be my favorite! Published in 2005, and also purchased from Amazon, it has 512 pages, and a color picture of each book. Only one or two books are pictured on each of it's small pages, and you can fit it into your bag - hence the name Field Guide. Warman's books are great.
Happy collecting to you!
And may all of your books be golden.
