A Mary Blair Treasury of Golden Books

This is a delightful book full of old fashioned and gentle illustrations of several Little Golden Books and even more wonders to be found on these pages.

Random House Kids sent me this treasury to review (thank you).  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

It begins with Baby's House, I Can Fly, The Golden Book of Verses and The Up and Down Book.  These are all sweet Golden Books and I'm pleased to see them gathered together in one volume.

What really pleases me about this book, though, are the songs.  I remember singing almost everyone of the songs featured in grade school.  Maybe you will, too.

There are some from The New Golden Song Book, Nursery Songs, Singing Games, Hymns and Carols, Cradle Songs, Folk Songs, Rounds and Patriotic Songs.

These are old songs and they may not be shared in school anymore.  Why not grab a copy of this book and teach your little ones how sing our favorite songs?

Happy reading.

The more I read your reviews on kids books the more I miss teaching in the early childhood programs. Thanks for sharing the wonderful variety out there that can be added both to parents lists and teachers as well.
