Little Golden Book Monday #139

Today's Little Golden Book is Good Night, Little Bear 1969 (First printing 1961), with story by Patsy Scarry and pictures by Richard Scarry.  Nothing more to say, except that it's late, so good night.

Little Golden Book Monday #138

This is a book my son gave me on the weekend while he was cleaning up his room. He was going though his two large book cases full of books and boxing up all the ones he no longer reads, so that he can donate them to a local thrift shop. He knows that I like Little Golden Books, so he brought this one to me and asked if I wanted it. Surprisingly I did not already have this one in my collection, so I thanked him for the new addition to my collection, and here we have today's book. Walter Lantz's Woddy Woodpecker at the Circus from 1981 (original printing 1976).
Along with the cover, I have scanned some images from the book, including a two page spread of Woody and his niece and nephew, Knothead and Splinter hanging out in the back yard sipping lemonade and reading the Circus Book.
Next up is a great Lion Tamer illustration. Reminds me of a lamp I used to have as a kid.
And lastly, I scanned the inside front cover. As you can see, this book was a prize at Lynne's 5th birthday party. Thanks Lynne!

Little Golden Book Monday #137

Today's Little Golden Book is The Wonderful School from 1969. Now that Christmas break is over it's back to work for myself and back to school for my son bright and early tomorrow morning after two weeks of staying up late and getting up at noon each day. All I can say is "Ah... do we have to?!"
