I loved the LIttle Golden Books when I was a child.
Courtney
I still gave this book five stars, though, because it was one of my own kids' favorites.
John A. Barham
My two year old LOVES this book, and we read it to him almost daily.

Other reviewers have provided the storyline, so I won't repeat it here. I will address some reviewers' concerns and add my own opinion of the story.

Some erronously think the sister's panties showing in the illustrations. They are not, they are bloomers which girls used to wear so that their panties *didn't* show. Bloomers were worn under dresses over underwear so that little girls could run and play *not* show their painties. I have often wished I could find them now for my little girls who love wearing dresses (even though I never wear them). Bloomers are basically pretty shorts.

I have read the book so many times I have it memorized and I can't recall any ominous injuries (another concern I saw posted). A boy got a tiny cut on a metal toy, and a father got a cut on a manual lawnmower blade. Nothing ominous in either case. Additionally, the sister, dog and doll all had pretend injuries, or old scraps that they wanted band-aids on, just like children of today.

Lastly, I found nothing sexist about this book. The mother was wearing a dress, but women did back then. Women do today, too. The mother helped her child feel better, which to my knowledge, mother's of today still do. The father, on his day off of work, mowed the lawn. I believe that both men women mow lawns today. The book does not say that only father could or that the mother was doing 'woman work' or anything of the sort. Many fathers of today mow lawns on the weekend. Lastly, the brother and sister were playing together, not sexist either!

For the record, I grew up in the 80's and I am a mother. There may have been sexist attitudes in the 50's, but to find them in the book, you have to put things into it that aren't there, and children do not do that. I think it is a very enjoyable book for parents and children alike. I know my children (of both genders) love this book.

Just would like to say that this story is wonderful in its portrayal of a boys being boys, a mother who has time, a brother who loves, plays with, and helps his little sister, and a Dad who indulges the eager interest of his young son (even if it costs him 10 minutes on the lawn job). My children love this story and don't think "mom" and "dad" are doing anything unusual--as has been suggested in some reviews. (too old fashioned in its view) The only exception is that Dad is using a funny looking lawn mower which only opens the door for some interesting conversation when the story is over. I highly recommend it!

Oh goodness! The reviewers who commented on the sexism etc are so ridiculous! Seriously. Are we that politically correct? This is my son's FAVORITE Golden book and we have OVER 50. He asks me to read it several times a day and always says "One more time!". He is 2 and has loved it for the last year. It is so charming and sweet. The illustrations are perfect and the story is not too lengthy (sometimes I paraphrase long ones!). As for it being a Band-Aid ad, I think not! It doesnt even say the brand, it says BANDAGE! If you have kids, you know that they love bandages!! Also, I don't think the mother is scolding him at all. He comes in crying and she says, "Why, that is nothing to cry over..." then she proceeds to clean it for him. that is EXACTLY how you should repsond to ALL kids (when they are not seriously injured of course). with care and love but not over reacting. unless you want your kid to be a serious wimp or something. Moving on. THe person who commented on the girls panties showing. Oh my! Give me a break! What is wrong with you that you would even notice something like tha? Anyhow, they are little BLOOMERS peeking out which is totally fine. Goodness gracious! This is a perfect book for kids and has a lovely storyline which is just the right length.

Okay, for all you new moms out there, this is a great book for a trip back in time. Back when boys actually took real guns to school to trade or sell to their friends (hey, they even went on the school bus!) when people wouldn't think of hurting someone else, not the mayhem we have today. They also played as if they were cowboys and played with their sisters as well. Don't look at this book like you would today. Why the reviewers below are so sarcastic about it is beyond me. Today, we have books about a farting dog and no one raises an eyebrow over that title, but you will if someone is playing cowboys with pretend guns. Go figure! Anyway, this is an awesome book. It shows a very caring young man who helps his family after his mother helps him with his finger injury. Dan then in turn, helps each of his other family members when they get a cut or scratch. Even the dog wants one! It's very loved in this house and is quite refreshing to see a simpler time once more. And, the lawnmower shown in the book is the kind that were used before they had motors. There's something interesting to talk about too! Highly recommend!

I am a 61 year old new Grandfather.I remember this book from when I was 5 years old.I haven't seen a copy for probably 50yr's,but I still remember the Band Aids.I think it's interesting that some reviewers see a very good book meant to introduce children to first aid and the idea of helping others, while others only see a little girls panties and advertising.I'm not sure why this book made such an impression on me,(it might have been my first book),but it still stands out after 55yr's.The 50's may seem odd to some folks but for the first 15 yr's of my life my parents never found it necessary to lock the front door unless we went out of town.Since I have seen all the Shirly Temple movies I didn't think the sight of a little girls panties was either shocking or disturbing,but I guess some folks see it as harmful.My parents read this book to me a lot until I learned how to read it for myself,and I don't think I was harmed in any way.As soon as I can find a copy my Grandson will have his first book in his library.
