I like that each of these books is a separate binding. Too often these collections jam everything together into one book, which doesn't make for comfortable before bed reading. These sweet little stories are going to see a lot of action in our house!

Great potty chair reading. I purchased this set for my grandson's potty training. The stories are as I remember. The pictures are very bright & colorful.They are the GOLDEN BOOKS we also remember.The books measure 6 3/4" × 8" long. Each book has 12 pages in them. The five books come in a not very thick cardboard sleeve. The sleeve measures the same as the books , plus 1" thick for housing the five books .It isn't getting 5 stars because I think where the pages bind to the hard cover , it could been sealed, glued better. With this being said my tazmanian 2 year old grandson has not taken them apart . He looks at his books aways , and they are still in tact. I know things just aren't made the way they used to be , I guess books aren't either. But I feel it was money well spent . THANKS FOR READING! BYE

I purchased the set of Golden Books for my 2-year-old granddaughter. Just like my own kids did when they were young, she sits still and listens closely when I read them to her. Of course, all of the stories promote certain morals and lessons, which is fine, but I had forgotten that a couple of them include somewhat gruesome descriptions, of natural animal behavior, but nevertheless possibly disturbing to a 2-year-old, so I decided to paraphrase a bit. All in all, I'm glad these nostalgic little books are still being published.

I bought this set as a Christmas present for my niece's three little girls; no child should grow up without Little Golden Books! These stories are some of my favorite book memories: I was read to as a small child, and then read them to myself as I got older. (My brother used to tell me rather impatiently that I would be able to read faster if I read SILENTLY--ha!) I read them to my children, and am eagerly waiting for a grandchild one day so I can read them to him/her. Little Golden Books are wonderful, creative, sweet stories that capture a child's imagination and often teach gentle lessons. To this day, "The Poky Little Puppy" and "Tootle" are favorites of mine and my three grown children! Stash the computer and iPad regularly and READ these to your kids!

My children grew up with this book. They loved it so much, that I bought a copy for each of the grand and great-grand children. More than worth the money. Children love to be read to. The most favorite was the story about the Elephant "who went galumph, galumph through the woods".

I bought this set for a new mama to share the joy I experienced reading these Golden Classics to my children when young. Just like I remembered and so fun to see a new generation of little ones smile at these favorite stories.

A super cute book to read my baby. He is still too young to actually say if he likes it or not, but I enjoy reading it to him. I have been collecting little golden books since he was born so we would build up a nice book collection.

Our little Audrey and her parents were very impressed with this wonderful set of books. You cannot go wrong with Golden Books and I would definitely buy more Golden books in the future. Amazon has been wonderful during the gift giving season. Sincerely, Janet Madden, Boston MA
