would like to survive when things inevitably go wrong. Everyone has "bumps in the road" during their lives. They remember the little Golden Books that they have read throughout their childhoods and would like to recapture the positive feelings that Golden Books evoke. I would recommend this book to those readers that would like to life with as positive an attitude as possible. JIBLL
Some of the wonderful tips in this book include the following: “Get some exercise every day, Day dream, Star Gaze, Bird Watch, Make music a part of your life, Turn off the TV from time to time and crack open a book, Savor the seasons as they roll around, Dare to explore what’s out there for you” and many other great pieces of advice. The fantastic and colorful illustrations are worth the price of the book alone.
This is the kind of book for all ages and one that provides practical and meaningful advice that is easy to follow. This is also a volume that you will want to pass down to other children to 7 years old to 90 years old.
Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Haiku Moments: How to read, write and enjoy haiku).
All those dear characters show up on the pages of this book to remind you how to live life:
Be a hugger (Georgie Finds a Grampa) , Use your imagination (Nurse Nancy) , Have some pancakes (Duck and His Friends), Take a mental health day every now and then (Little Red Hen)
The pictures bring back memories and the captions are clever.
In Everything I Need to Know I Learned From a Little Golden Book, Diane Muldrow took illustrations from classic LGBs and linked them together with some basic and good advice for life. Some of the advice is obvious, but that makes it no less sound: For example "Don't forget to enjoy your wedding". I can't count the number of recent weddings that I've attended where the bride looked like she forgot to have fun. And "Let your children know you love them". Actually, I think that is the best advice in the book.
The artwork is phenomenal -- the best of the best in vintage Little Golden Book illustrations. I am happy to say that we own at least half of the books featured, and now I know which ones I need to replace.
