5.0 out of 5 stars Classic! February 28, 2009
By Teacher
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A very sweet collection of books I remember reading in the 70s. My pet peeve is that the contents are never listed in these anthologies, so here they are:
Busy Timmy, Guess Who Lives Here, My LGB About God, Wonders of Nature, selections from A Child's Garden of Verses, We Help Mommy, Baby Listens, Baby Dear, Baby Looks, "Little Boy Blue," "At Sunset"

4.0 out of 5 stars a sweet and gentler time February 23, 2006
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love this beautiful book filled with images from a simpler, gentler time. I remember Eloise Wilkin stories that I used to look at as a little girl, that used to be my mother's books. So this book is very nostalgic for me. I gave it a 4 since

it left out her book "Prayers for Children" that I just love. I think this is a wonderful book to present to children today, as it shows loving families, and an affirmation that God loves his children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection! January 16, 2007
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book when my little boy turned one...I loved the drawings and stories. Such sweet tales here, such as "Busy Timmy", "We Help Mommy" and "Baby Listens". My son will soon be two and this is one of his favorite books! Even when we're not reading it to him, he loves to hold it in his lap, flip the pages and look at the pictures. Wilkin's drawings are so wonderful -- the way the babies have the chubby cheeks and huge eyes - so true to life! This is really a must have for every child's library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eloise Wilkin Stories March 8, 2007
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Eloise Wilkin is the only illustrator that I have hunted far and wide for her books. The way she draws just touches something in my heart and adds tremendous emotion to whatever story or poem that is being read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classics that modern day children love June 30, 2007
Format:Hardcover
My daughter has LOVED this book since she was about 20 months old. There are great stories for toddlers, plus a few more advanced ones to "grow on." The illustrations are just lovely, and you'll find ideas and concepts that just aren't being taught today. A good example is "We Help Mommy." Don't hesitate. Buy this book for the toddler or preschooler in your life.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful collection, but... January 28, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I remember Eloise Wilkin's illustrations from my childhood, so I was thrilled to find this collection of Golden Book stories. I only remember reading a couple of the stories before, so this book is a beautiful addition to my children's book collection. I do have one kind of big complaint though, which is why I am rating the book a 3 instead of a 5. Recently when I was reading some of the stories to my 15 month old, I noticed sparkles on the cover pages. At first I thought this was in the paper lining, but I soon realized that the metallic gold coating on the edges of the pages is coming off like dust. It was all over my fingers. I feel uncomfortable having my daughter touch the pages with me, as well as me touching the pages myself. What is this gold coating made from? The metallic gold sheen still appears solid when the book is closed (no white spots), but I wonder if the gold will hit a point when it no longer powders off, or if it will keep happening until it's gone. Does anyone know about this? The book was printed or manufactured in China, which makes me even more nervous about what might comprise the gold coating. Any answers would be appreciated.
