I grew up with the Golden Books and I still have many of them. Many just wore out...I am the eldest of six, and back in the day, we shared our books (instead of having our own copy). I am now recreating the library I enjoyed as a child.
Eloise Wilkin has illustrated many Golden Books over the years. The innocence in her watercolors give a magical feel to her books. The Wonders of Nature is one children love to look at again and again.
There's nothing like a Little Golden book illustrated with the beautiful children of Eloise Wilkins. This combined her lovely drawings with simple explanations of the delights of nature. Homeschoolers will enjoy it as something for the little ones to read/look at while Mom or Dad does Science with the older ones. Adults will enjoy just sitting and relishing the book with their children/grandchildren/visitors. A wonderful gift for family, friends or the church library.
I grew up on many of the Little Golden Books, so I have a bias. I find vintage Little Golden Books kinder in character, more pleasing to the eye & less abrasive in word than many children's books of today.
This book is a timeless classic for small children. It beautifully supports a child's awe and love for the natural world while marveling at biodiversity, demonstrating cultural diversity, and speaking directly to the reader as it is found to be in second person in the end
What a beautiful book. It illustrates children learning about different woodland creatures. My daughter loved reading this book and learning about animals and different things found in nature. Really beautiful pictures and a great book for children to read!
Obviously these little golden books classics speak for themselves... The same stories my parents read to me, same great illustrations... i bought several Of these books to tear the pages out and make a bunting for a book themed baby shower
I bought this for my granddaughter because she loved the copy I have (which is on loan). I hate that someone wrote in the inside cover but understand. The book looks like it was never opened. Old is some times good. She probably won't care anyway! She loves the book.
