About the Author
MARGARET WISE BROWN (1910-1952), best known as the author of Goodnight Moon, wrote countless children's books inspired by her belief that the very young were fascinated by the simple pleasures of the world around them. Among her many bestselling Golden titles are Mister Dog, The Color Kittens, The Golden Egg Book, Seven Little Postmen, The Friendly Book, and The Sailor Dog.
GARTH WILLIAMS (1912-1996) is known for his realistic yet highly expressive animal characters. His unique style has brought to life some of the best-loved children's books of the 20th century, including E. B. White's Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little, and the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. He illustrated many timeless Golden Books, among them Baby Farm Animals, Mister Dog, The Friendly Book, The Sailor Dog,The Giant Golden Book of Elves and Fairies, and The Kitten Who Thought He Was a Mouse.

So begins this lovely book, telling how a small brown bunny goes down the road and down the road one day when the butteflies are swaying on stalks and a flora botanica of the brightly colored small flowers are unfolding in the warm sunlight. The bunny meets three baby robins still wearing bits of their blue shells, a somewhat inhospitable ground-hog, and the frog in his bog. In none of their homes can this sweet-faced bunny find his home. UNTIL.....
The Little Golden Book is a poem, written like a small song by Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by Garth Williams with the precision and color of the millefleurs tapestries of the Middle Ages. It is loving, friendly, unfussy, and perfect, a beloved book since 1956---reprinted fresh and sparkling new as children, parents, and grandparents remember it.
The book boards are sturdy, heavy cardboard, the pages are strong enough for years of turning by small hands, and the Amazon price is unbelievably low. I have just purchased five copies as Easter-spring greetings for family & friends and yes, one for myself.
