    DIANE MULDROW, editorial director at Golden Books, has written dozens of children's books, includingWe Planted a Tree, illustrated by Bob Staake. She edited Golden Legacy: How Golden Books Won Children's Hearts, Changed Publishing Forever,and Became an American Icon Along the Way, by Leonard Marcus.

    A humorous "guide to life" for grown-ups! One day, Diane Muldrow, a longtime editor of the iconic Little Golden Books, realized that, despite their whimsical appearance, there was hardly a real-life situation that hadn't been covered in the more than 70-year-old line of children's books—from managing money, to the importance of exercise, to finding contentment in the simplest things. In this age of debt, depression, and diabetes, could we adults use a refresher course in the gentle lessons from these adorable books, she wondered—a "Little Golden guide to life"? Yes, we could! Muldrow's humorous yet practical tips for getting the most out of life ("Don't forget to enjoy your wedding!" "Be a hugger." "Sweatpants are bad for morale."), drawn from more than 60 stories, are paired with delightful images from these best-loved children's books of all time—among themThe Poky Little Puppy, Pantaloon, Mister Dog, Nurse Nancy, We Help Mommy, Five Pennies to Spend,and The Little Red Hen. The Golden greats of children's illustration are represented here as well: Richard Scarry, Garth Williams, Eloise Wilkin, J. P. Miller, and Mary Blair, among many others. Sure to bring memories and a smile, this book is a perfect gift for baby boomers, recent grads, lovers of children's literature—or anyone who cherishes the sturdy little books with the shiny cardboard covers and gold foil spines!

    • Why did you choose this product?

      • I saw this book in my local Target Store and loved it because I have collected Little Golden books since I was a child. My kids had them (I kept them!) and now I am purchasing them for my grandchildren. Overstock's price was almost half of what Target was asking so I bought it here :-)
