I have always loved Golden Books. Being a Seventies child and all … from a family who was living paycheck to paycheck for quite some time … these little 50 cent books (5 cents at yard sales) were what my brother and I grew up on. Now, I make part of my “living” by altering these sweet books into journals.
I get them from my local Goodwill, church thrift shops, yard sales, Ebay, etc. Sometimes folks will send me their old Goldens so that I can put them to good use. And often times my parents will scout for them all over Penobscot County. So, I have a bounty of these childhood treasures … and love almost every one of them.
My particular favorite while growing up was this one:
Do you grow up on Golden Books? Which were your favorites? And where do you find them now?
For a great anthology on the history and collection of Golden Books, I recommend Golden Legacy. Check it out.
Enjoy your day,
