More About Golden Books
Little Golden Books are a product of Random House Publishers.
When Little Golden Books launched in 1942 at 25 cents each, they changed publishing history. For the first time, children's books were high quality and low-priced. They were available to almost all children, not just a privileged few. Little Golden Books were designed to be sturdy (a new concept), delightfully illustrated, and to be sold not only in bookstores, but department stores and other chains (another new concept).
Little Golden Books were an instant success story, even though WWII was on and paper shortages loomed. Five months after the launch, 1.5 million copies had been printed, and LGBs were in their third printing.
Since then, over two billion Little Golden Books have reached the hands of children all over the world. Who hasn't heard of The Poky Little Puppy, star of the best-selling Little Golden Book of all? It has sold well over 15 million copies worldwide, in many different languages. Tootle the Train, The Saggy Baggy Elephant, The Shy Little Kitten, The Little Red Caboose, The Tawny Scrawny Lion, and Scuffy the Tugboat soon followed, to become household names.
Little Golden Books have mirrored children's popular culture over the years, having featured Lassie, Raggedy Ann, Uncle Wiggily, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, Howdy Doody, Annie Oakley, Captain Kangaroo, Bozo the Clown, Gene Autrey, The Lone Ranger, Smokey Bear, Disney, Warner Brothers, Hanna Barbera, Sesame Street, Pokemon, and Between the Lions characters, Mister Rogers, Barney, Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Underdog, Peter Cottontail, Barbie, and others. Dr. Ruth Westheimer has just penned a story about grandparents starring herself.
Many famous writers and illustrators created Little Golden Books, notably Margaret Wise Brown, author of GOODNIGHT MOON (Harper). Her LGBs were often illustrated by Garth Williams, most famous for his illustrations for CHARLOTTE'S WEB, STUART LITTLE, and the "Little House" series. Richard Scarry began his career at Golden Books and did most of his most famous books here, from Little Golden Books to his beloved oversized books CARS AND TRUCKS AND THINGS THAT GO, and RICHARD SCARRY'S BEST WORD BOOK EVER! Eloise Wilkin, famous for her stunning paintings of cherubic children, illustrated dozens of LGBs. Caldecott medalists James Marshall, Tibor Gergely, Leonard Weisgard, Alice and Martin Provensen, and Trina Schart Hyman have illustrated Little Golden Books.
Today, Little Golden Books are an icon. The Smithsonian Institution includes Little Golden Books and artwork in its Division of Cultural History.

Reviews - What do customers think about Fix It with Bob: The Very Busy Day (Bob the Builder)?
A favorite Apr 10, 2007
My 21-month-old son has enjoyed this book since he was over a year old (the plastic screwdriver might be a little sharp for a child under age 1). When he could not turn the screw with the screwdriver himself, he liked to hold the screwdriver and put it through the hole in the book as we read. Now that he's a little older, he can turn the screw himself. As he gets even older, he will understand the story more and turn the screw at the appointed times in the story. I also like that the book comes with a storage slot for the screwdriver so it stays with the book.
Led to reading by all mannner of enticements Feb 17, 2004
Admittedly, Bob the Builder is for "little guys", and this heavy duty board book with a built-in screwdriver and clicking turnaround "screw" will entice boys into the book again and again. I'd recommend this for 14-18 month old boys, who will get good practice on hand-eye coordination as they aim the tip of the screwdriver into the slot. The story is not the point; lap timeis everything. Kids who come to school with 1000 or more lap hours with books are always highly successful students. This will help build up laptime for little guys.
