Oh! I had a full set of the 36 books when I was little (in the 60's)! I'm trying to collect them all as they were lost when loaned out...Lucy
They really are precious. I'm always on the hunt for great children's books and have recently discovered Bayard and their series of StoryBoxBooks, AdventureBoxBooks and DiscoveryBoxBooks (which has a special focus on teeth!) They have work by acclaimed children's books illustrator Helen Oxenbury appearing in the Storybox series for September. In addition to this, they also have some great activities for rainy days: http://www.storyboxbooks.com/potatoprinting.php, http://www.adventureboxbooks.com/macaroni-picture-frames.php, http://www.discoveryboxbooks.com/skittles.php Enjoy!
I adore these books. I've had my full set since childhood (35+years) and handed them down to my 4 year old daughter. Although I keep these out of reach and only look at them with her when supervised, I just noticed that one is missing, #24 The Naughty Little Guest. If anyone has any idea where I could locate a replacement of this particular book please make a post. I'm crushed that it's lost. Thank you so much. Leslie
ah what a cool blog !!! I love old golden books :)
