It seems like everyone grows up with Little Golden Books. It’s hard not to get a little nostalgic every time I see that telltale gold spine with the flowers. Diane Muldrow’s book Everything I Need to Know I Learned from a Little Golden Book is exactly what the title promises: an homage to those eternal classics and the little lessons they teach us as kids. Each page features an illustration from a different Little Golden Book, accompanied by a short sentence, or lesson, on how to make life better and more fun. The lessons range from the simple, such as “Be a hugger,” to the more fun, such as “Go for a joyride,” and the more contemporary “Don’t forget your antioxidants.” The illustrations come from several classics including The Poky Little Puppy, and The Tawny Scrawny Lion, and each one has the book title and author listed in the corner, in case you want to track down a copy of your own to read. This book serves as a reminder that it’s the little things in life that make it all worth while. Simply put, this book is awesome.
