Description

A humorous "guide to life" for grown-ups! One day, Diane Muldrow, a longtime editor of the iconic Little Golden Books, realized that, despite their whimsical appearance, there was hardly a real-life situation that hadn't been covered in the more than 70-year-old line of children's books—from managing money, to the importance of exercise, to finding contentment in the simplest things. In this age of debt, depression, and diabetes, could we adults use a refresher course in the gentle lessons from these adorable books, she wondered—a "Little Golden guide to life"? Yes, we could! Muldrow's humorous yet practical tips for getting the most out of life ("Don't forget to enjoy your wedding!" "Be a hugger." "Sweatpants are bad for morale."), drawn from more than 60 stories, are paired with delightful images from these best-loved children's books of all time—among them The Poky Little Puppy, Pantaloon, Mister Dog, Nurse Nancy, We Help Mommy, Five Pennies to Spend, and The Little Red Hen. The Golden greats of children's illustration are represented here as well: Richard Scarry, Garth Williams, Eloise Wilkin, J. P. Miller, and Mary Blair, among many others. Sure to bring memories and a smile, this book is a perfect gift for baby boomers, recent grads, lovers of children's literature—or anyone who cherishes the sturdy little books with the shiny cardboard covers and gold foil spines!

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 15, 2014 – Muldrow, editorial director of Golden Books, returns with a second witty compilation of wisdom inspired by the beloved line of children’s books. In contrast to the vintage artwork—from Mary Blair, Richard Scarry, Eloise Wilkin, and more—the narrative voice is off-the-cuff and modern, moving from a position of exhaustion (“All that baking, the endless cycle of cooking and cleaning”) to one that appreciates the traditions and merriment of Christmas (“So deck the halls! Deck yourselves!”). Muldrow cleverly repurposes illustrations from holiday and non-holiday titles alike to create a book that will resonate with readers young and old. Ages 12–up.
