Everybody remembers the Little Golden Books! For over 60 years, generations of children have loved them. They have written their names inside each front cover and delighted in the colorful pictures and wonderful stories inside. Over two billion Little Golden Books have reached the hands of children, and we salute the talented authors and artists who created these sweetly encouraging picture books with the famous gold-foil spine.
In 2013, Diane Muldrow, past editor of the Little Golden Books, created a new book, Everything I Need to Know I Learned from a Little Golden Book. Muldrow’s book anthologized the illustrations and ideas from several classic Little Golden Books to offer loving, inspiring, and humorous advice for dealing with life’s ups and downs. Publishers Weekly called it “an optimistic and cheering trip down memory lane.” So popular was this first book that Muldrow has continued the series, creating similar books on the subjects of love, family, Christmas, and more.
With great excitement, we at Laughing Elephant have partnered with Random House Children’s Books, publisher of the Little Golden Books and Diane Muldrow’s book series, to share their wonderful imagery and sentiments as Laughing Elephant greeting cards.
