Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Golden Books brings back three Big Little Golden Books, picture books from the 1940s and '50s now available in larger-sized, paper-over-board editions. Originally published in 1954, The Friendly Book by Margaret Wise Brown, illus. by Garth Williams, uses rhyming verse to explore a whole series of likable things. It's a paean to dogs and boats, cars and stars-as in "I like stars/ Far stars/ Quiet stars/ Bright Stars/ Light stars/ I like stars/ A star that is shooting across the dark sky/ A star that is shining right straight in your eye/ I like stars." Williams packs the illustrations with quirky, often hilarious details; for the spread about stars, for example, a rabbit balloonist floats through the night sky in a patched-up balloon, labeled "starship," with a bird's nest on top of it. The Saggy Baggy Elephant by K. & B. Jackson, illus. by Tenggren, debuted in 1947. A happy little elephant named Sooki dances through the jungle until a saucy parrot makes fun of Sooki's saggy, baggy skin. This pachyderm-cum-ugly-duckling story features richly hued artwork against white backgrounds. A spare text tells the tale of a fire and the heroic firemen who rush to put it out, in The Great Big Fire Engine Book (1950) by Tibor Gergely, "Quick! Connect the hoses! S-s-s-s! goes the water." The rescuers swarm over each spread with reassuring efficiency. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Highly Recommended

    My 4 yr old grandson really loves this one. He and I love the read and listen books. We still read books, however these are great for when he needs alone time or just quite time directing his own activities.

    Great sounds!

    The story is cute, but the noises in the book are great. When my baby is fussy I turn this on and he is intrigued!! He forgets to be fussy!

    Good book

    I read this to my 2 year old son. I need to zoom in on the text, but read to me works as well. This is an older book but still a good one.

    Family Tradition

    I read this to my children and now I'm reading it to my grandchildren. It's a timeless book. It's always a favorite. I only wish the voice was louder. The reader has a very soft spoken voice.
