Little Golden Book Monday #74

Today's Little Golden Book, I choose simply because it was kind of old and interesting looking, and I had never seen the back cover before. "This Little Piggy and other counting rhymes" is filled with 41 pages of children's rhymes such as Buckle My Shoe, Billy loves Tea, Hickety Pickety, Ten Little Injuns, Thirty Days Hath September and the ever popular This Little Piggy.
The Book is "A commemorative facsimile edition published on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Little Golden Books and printed in 1992, originally printed in 1942.
I have to admit that when I found it at the local thrift shop I thought that it was actually from 1942, and it was not until I got home and had a closer look that I realized that it was a commemorative reprint from 1992. I wonder how many people pick these up at thrift shops etc thinking they have found some valuable treasure?

Little Golden Book Monday #73

Today's Little Golden Book is Veggie Tales: Larry Boy and the Fib From Outer Space! I found this one at the local drug store the other day and had to have it. The cover reminded me of a Batman cover with Larry dressed in his super hero costume and the Cucumberman Signal in the sky above him! And I will admit to going to the theater to see the movie Jonah: A Veggie Tales Movie and liking it, and being a big fan of the song 'The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything"! If you have never heard the song, check out the version done by punk/pop band Relient K, it's great fun!
It's always fun finding new Little Golden Books, and this one looks like it will be fun to share with my 3 year old son.
