In September 1942, Simon & Schuster published the very first Little Golden Book. The original 12 titles were 25¢ each and included the following: The Poky Little Puppy, Three Little Kittens, Bedtime Stories, The Alphabet A-Z, Mother Goose, Prayers for Children, The Little Red Hen, Nursery Songs, The Golden Book of Fairy Tales, Baby’s Book, The Animals of Farmer Jones, This Little Piggy
They’ve been around for 71 years (!) and over 2 billion Little Golden Books have reached the hands of children all over the world.
This is a neat history of Golden Books timeline… Hasn’t been updated in TEN YEARS though!
