Little Golden opportunities.

I was at a garage sale the other week and among the many treasures I brought home with me was a stack of 'Little Golden Books' from the 70s and 80s. Talk about funky retro!

Retro Little Golden Books
How cool are they? Nostalgia plus! I had a few of these books myself when I was a kid, but a brand new delight was reading Never Pat A Bear; A Book About Signs. Rather disturbingly, the sign inside the book about bear patting actually says "Never pat a bear until it is a rug", but the best part of the book says "Some signs give advice. Here is some good advice." then there is a picture of a sign that says; Never rub your eyes except with your elbow.

I haven't decided what to do with them yet, but I'm thinking all these funky illustrations have a fantastic future as some kind of artwork. In the mean time, I might brush up on my alphabet with the slightly politically incorrect Cowboy ABC, or learn more about visiting the forest with Smokey Bear Finds a Helper.


  1. Doesn't this bring back memories. I just googled and I think they were first produced in the 50's. I Can't wait to see what you do with them.

  2. I have seen these turned into notebooks before, very cute. I have just discovered your blog and really love it, I am now following :)
