Do You Remember… Golden Books


Doesn’t this picture bring back memories?


I wasn’t much of a reader but I remember seeing Golden Books at school and people’s houses.  I don’t recall having any at home – plus, with 3 older brothers – I’d probably get beat up if I was caught reading them.


But I secretly read a couple – or at least looked at the pictures.  But at first glance of the gold binding, I immediately knew what they were.


Do you remember these:





Do you remember reading Golden Books when you were growing up?  Which titles do your remember?  Did you make them available for your children?  Do you still have some lying around the house to pass on to future generations?




Join Funkshun this Friday (12/7) at Ige’s Restaurant and 19th Puka from 8:30 to 11:30 for their Christmas gig!  It’s going to be packed!  SRO (Standing Room Only).  Word is that Santa Claus might even be there.  😉

    Good afternoon! My favorite was Nurse Nancy. The book had pictures of special band aids that were included with the book, Too bad all the band aids were gone by the time the book got passed down to me. I always wished for those band aids because I think some were decorated with pictures and were in special shapes, like maybe a duck I think. Fond memories…

    My aunty used to take my cousin and me to downtown Kress on Saturdays. She always bought us ONE Little Golden Book to share. First thing we did when we got home was to fight over whose name would be written in the “This book belongs to…”

    I remember those books ❗ I read them to my children ❗ I passed on hundreds of our children’s books to my niece, an elementary school teacher with 4 children of her own ❗ They all love to read their hand-me-down books ❗ 😀

    Good Morning! I remember those books. I had a bunch of them, I recognize all the ones in the picture….I really liked Poky Little Puppy. I am hoping that those books are still in a box at my parents house.

  34. Kage says:

    Good morning!

    I remember these books too. The titles escape the memory…. 🙁

    I was the youngest of the family and the cousins so many, many hand me downs too. Some of the books were missing pages. 🙂 Just make up the story in between.

  35. Mark'75 says:

    Being the youngest of four, we had a lot of Golden Books at home. I don’t remember any specific title, but there were lots.

    Our kids had a number of them too, some were also hand-me-downs.
