This year marks 75 years since the beginning publication of Golden Books. Started in 1942, Golden books were affordable, high quality illustrated children’s books.  Exhibiting such illustrators as Tibor Gergley, Garth Williams, Eloise Wilkin, Richard Scarry and Hilary Knight, Golden books introduced us to the Poky Little Puppy, the Saggy Baggy Elephant, Scuffy the Tugboat, Grover in The Monster at the End of this Book and many, many others. Still going strong, Golden Books is holding events around the country in celebration. Check out their web site (click Tootle above) and see about an event near you. What is YOUR favorite Golden Book?
