I have my parents to thank for my love of reading. Both my older brother and I were encouraged to read as kids and had a myriad of books. My personal faves were almost anything by Enid Blyton and – even then I loved a good mystery… Famous Five, Secret Seven etc.
Indeed our individual collections grew (pic left) and I did permit a friend some borrowing privileges.
I was really chuffed to receive a gift from my brother, sister-in-law and niece during their visit last weekend. I’d seen this book advertised, but not really known what it entailed. And… It. Is. Gorgeous.
Not only does it actually make a lot of sense – in a way that only a Little Golden Book can – but it brought back a myriad of childhood memories.
Were you raised by Little Golden Books?
Speaking of which… are they even still a THING?
