Review: Everything I Need to Know I Learned From a Little Golden Book

August 21, 2014

Everything I Need to Know

If you were a fan of Little Golden Books, you’re sure to love Everything I Need to Know I Learned From a Little Golden Book by Diane Muldrow.  This book uses pictures from those classic books to illustrate some terrific advice.  The advice is simple but profound at times and reminds readers to step back, take a deep breath, and enjoy life.

Everything I Need to Know interior

From The Saggy Baggy Elephant by Kathryn and Byron Jackson, illustrated by Gustaf Tenggren, 1947.

This book is beautifully made.  The binding is made to look like a Little Golden Book and the endpapers are the same as those found in those beloved classics.  The book is printed on heavy paper and features color throughout.

Everything I Need to Know I Learned From a Little Golden Book is a quick, nostalgic read that would make a delightful gift.

    Oh, I hadn’t heard of this and I just love LGBs, used to have quite a big collection! Must get this and I see they are coming out with a Christmas one too! Gorgeous artists they had in the old days.
