“Everything I Need to Know I Learned from a Little Golden Book”

Iowa City author Katherine L. House, (“The White House for Kids: History of a Home, Office and National Symbol, with 21 Activities,” Chicago Review Press, 2014) said, “The book I chose isn’t really a children’s book, but it is a treasure for adult aficionados of children’s literature. ‘Everything I Need to Know I Learned from a Little Golden Book’ (Golden Books, 2013) by Diane Muldrow reproduces artwork from numerous Little Golden Books. The author, who is the longtime editorial director at Golden Books, wrote captions for the artwork that offer advice for modern times. The book begins with an illustration from ‘Circus Time’ (1948) and the caption, ‘Is your life starting to feel like a circus?’ and ends with an illustration from ‘Boats’ (1951). The size and format are the same as the familiar Little Golden Books, down to the gold spine. The end papers are full-color reproductions of the end papers from Little Golden Books and are authentic down to the box that reads, ‘This Little Golden Book Belongs to,’ along with a space for the owner to write his or her name.”
