Little Golden Book - Bullwinkle

Back in the 80's when I was a kid my family lived in Edmonton, Alberta.  We used to go to Bullwinkle's Family Restaurant for special occasions- it was the best!  WAY cooler than Chuck E. Cheese.  I remember the animatronic Rocky and Bullwinkle show that you could watch while you ate your dinner.  My 7 year old recently went to see the new Mr. Peabody and Sherman movie and had a good time.

Three Little Kittens/The Shy Little Kitten

Three Little Kittens is the first Little Golden Book, illustrated by Masha, in 1942.  The Shy Little Kitten, illustrated by Gustaf Tenggren, (who also illustrated The Poky Little Puppy), is also one of the original 12 Little Golden Books.  My 2 oldest daughters, Keira and Tegan, each have a stuffed animal cat as their best buddy that they bring everywhere.  (Baby Brielle doesn't have a favourite animal yet!)  Keira's cat is named Fiddlesticks and Tegan's cat is named Cat.

Everything I Need to Know I Learned From a Little Golden Book

Fiiinally taking a quick break from tending to my new baby and gazing out at too much snow with a new post for you. Enjoy this collection of some of the best illustrations from Little Golden Books over the years.  Little Goldens really are the best. The pictures are selected from stories such as Tootle, The Three Bears, The Saggy Baggy Elephant, The Musicians of Bremen, Baby's First Book, Nurse Nancy, Pantaloon, Open Up My Suitcase, A Day on the Farm, The Color Kittens, The Tawny Scrawny Lion, The Little Red Hen, and Little Boy With a Big Horn.
