From the Back Cover
More than 300,000,000 Golden Books have gone into the homes of children of all nations. From 30 to 40 new Little Golden Books are published in the United States each year.
The subjects of Golden Books are chosen to entertain and delight children. Many of them are about the young child's own environment, giving him a feeling of belonging. Others begin to acquaint the child with the lives of people around him and extend his awareness of the world.
Although their gay and colorful appearance does not always immediately show it, a number of Golden Books are packed with information. And behind the amusing stories in many of them is the serious purpose of helping the child prepare for difficult adjustments.
The Golden Books include versions of modern children classics told for young listeners and, of course, a good share of the beloved fairy and folk tales.
So look closely at the Golden Books you choose for they have many imitators. You will find a listing of books in the Little Golden Library on the reverse of this cover.
