As I was growing up, I had a large collection of Little Golden Books that I remember quite fondly. My mother liked to read to my siblings and I. I remember many nights, sitting on the couch all around my mom and on her lap with my brothers while she read to us. The little golden books were a staple in our earliest years. After that, the age relevance of the books grew along with us.
My children benefited from that collection of Little Golden Books. I wasn't as diligent reading to my children as my mother was reading to us, but we did own the books and read them fairly regularly.
Now that I have grandchildren, I enjoy watching my children read to them. The Grandkids will the Little Golden Books tradition just the same as I did.
