Have you heard the news? Yesterday, Gymboree launched a limited-edition of baby books featuring iconic characters from Little Golden Books like The Poky Little Puppy! I remember reading a few books from The Little Golden series as a child. I haven’t shared these books with my kids yet, but I definitely plan to now. I’m sure these limited-edition books will be great collector’s items so I’ll be stocking up!
Before the introduction of Little Golden Books in October 1942, children’s books weren’t necessarily made with children’s interests in mind. Fortunately, once Little Golden Books hit the market they were an instant hit and have become childhood favorites for several generations ever since.
The books initially sold for 25¢ (rising to 29¢ in 1962). Today, Little Golden Books generally retail for $3.99 which is still very affordable. The Poky Little Puppy was and still is the most popular of these original title, helping it become the best-selling children’s book of the 20th century.

Omg what memories! I had several. Thanks for the nostalgia:) I remember 3 Little Pigs distinctly because when my mom read it she would escalate as it came to the wolf blowing down the 3rd house!
Thank you, Christine! Oh yes, The 3 Little Pigs is a definite favorite for me too. Thanks for stopping by!
All time favorite Little Golden Book is The Lucky Puppy! I memorized it when I was three and would “read” it to my mother! She thought I was a child prodigy that could read…but it was just memorized!
Thanks for the great walk down memory lane!
My fav Little Golden book is The Little Engine that Could!
