Little Golden Book
Books that Kids, Parents and Grandparents Can Not Give Up!
I know that there are many, many Golden Books. That is part of the reason I am showing the back of the book. The other is that with most books I will always look at the cover both front and back. Its amazing what you can find out. This true for adult and kid books alike.
I also know that there are different back covers for the Little Golden Books. I chose to use the image that we have on most of our books. What you will see on this page is each of these books represented. With a few more in the mix just because they are all worth reading on this page.
So please take your time and take note of the books on this page. As I said above they are for kids, parents and grandparents. I know as that is how long some of these books have been in our family.

My Favorite Little Golden Book
Yes Grover is my favorite Muppet on Sesame Street. OK favorite Muppet anywhere. It is also a lot of fun to read through this book with my kids. Turning the pages and giving different expressions as Grover gets closer and closer to the end of the book and "the Monster at the end of this Book."
Just so you know this is my second favorite Little Golden Book! Thus the reason it is at the top of this page. There is only one other Little Golden book that out does this one and Grover, but you should already know that.

The Lion is always hungry. However he can always catch what he is going after. But because he has to run to catch it he is never full. Until one day a little rabbit comes into his life and helps him to become full. Its not just the food he needed to be full but also the friendship that the little rabbit brought into his life. So for those that need more than the food around them to fill up on this is a wonderful book to read and talk about. To find out what is around them and how they too can reach out to help others.
There are rules to live by. Some are easy and some are not so easy. In this story the "The Pokey Little Puppy" has to lean this for himself. For him the rules are placed clearly and easy to see. It helps however if those rules are seen and obeyed. They can be posted over and over with no luck. Sometimes the only way to get ones attention is to take something away. For the Pokey Little Puppy it was food. The term being sent to bed with no supper comes into play. But as with the Puppy sometimes taking something away for others will help them to also obey the rules.
You can never have enough books
How many Little Golden Books are in your collection?
Its interesting how many times we think that we don't fit in. This story is a perfect example of this. Not knowing who we are and why we were created in this way. Sooki the little elephant goes through this for us and learns in the end what he is and why he was created in this way.
It is a great book to read and learn from Sooki's example how perseverance can help you to learn and cope with what you don't know.

It is so easy sometimes to get distracted from your jog. Tootle is a good example of this. When doing your job you need to stay focused. By reading this book you will be able to see him get distracted and what he does with the help of his friends to get back on track.
Sorry that pun was too hard to pass up.
If you grow up on a lake any story that involves boats and water has to be a good read. In this case that fits perfectly.
Yes there were many boats that I played with at the lake house and let go down the creek into the lake.

I remember reading this book. but not owning it. Imagine my surprise when I was working on this site and looking for books coming across it. The first thing I did was look at all the pictures to bring back the memories. Second time through I actually read the words.
The wife had listed when we had gotten this book. It was when our youngest was only three. That helps explain whey it was familiar.

Its interesting all the things we have and sometimes not realize what they are. This is the theme of this story. As Ernie and Bert investigate their attic they find several things that brought back memories to them both.
What I am suggesting is that you read this book and then go through some of your stuff to see what memories they can bring back for you.
Donald Duck and the Biggest Dog in Town - Seeing as the following link did not have a copy of the book I scanned one in.
Its interesting on how when you go to work on something those around you can help and not even realize it. Case in point this choice of stories. I was looking through all of out Little Golden Book's When my youngest reached over and asked me to read this one to him.
Well it was almost his bead time so story time had come. He went upstairs and got ready for bed. His pj's were on and teeth were brushed. I went upstairs and turned on the light in our room. Fluffed up the pillows and tried to say awake while reading to him.
One last drink of water and a quick bathroom break. I then tucked him in and we did our evening prayers. Night light on and over head light off.
Its amazing how you can make a difference and not realize what you are doing. This is exactly what Big Bird did in this story. He purchase six flowers to make himself feel better and to bring spring back into his life.
Throughout this book he is able to share those flowers with his friends and also help them to feel like spring was in the air.
My Wish List on amazon
Here are a few that I would like but don't have as of yet. But who am I to drop obvious hints?
I have enjoyed the video ever since I saw it the first time. In fact I have done the repeat more than once. This is usually OK until the kids catch me. Then its dad can't we just watch the movie? Sure thing just as soon as this one is finished. With that being said I was surfing Amazon for the books on this page while watching the video when I had that flash in my head to check for this book. And there it was. And now here it is for you too to check out and if you wish add to your collection.
Being last is not always fun. Just try holding the door for others when it is raining hard or snowing and all they want to do is get inside. But being last is also important even if they don't thank you the time saved and their ability to get inside where it is warm and dry is appreciated. The Little Red Caboose never saw how important he could be until the opportunity arose. Just like you and me it is always best to look for those times when you are needed. And then step forward and do what you can. With any luck even if it is just one person that smiles that can be enough. If you are like the Little Red Caboose then it could be your willingness to through everything you have into a situation to help others. And like the Little Red Caboose if it wasn't for you willingness to dig in all others would come crashing down.
