Random House, Little Golden Book Classics Review & Giveaway!!!


We are big readers in this house, from the smallest to the tallest, books are a huge part of our lives.  Little Golden Books have been a part of my life since my first memory.  I had hundreds as a child and I still have many of my childhood Little Golden Books, as well as many that my older children had as kids and now my little ones have too.  They bring back such memories and the authors and illustrations that I grew up with are so nice to share with generation after generation.  I recently received two Golden Book Classics to review.  Mr. Noah And His Family and The Cow Went Over The Mountain, immediately made me smile as I unpacked them. I could not wait to read these to my little ones and always  marvel how these books have stood the test of time as they delight children as much today as when they were first introduced.



This classic Little Golden Book features adorable artwork of a child playing with her toy Noah’s Ark set, accompanied by a sweet rhyme that preschoolers will love to hear as they identify the animals. Illustrated by Alice and Martin Provensen, who brought The Color Kittens and The Fuzzy Duckling to life for Golden Books.

JANE WERNER was one of the first editors of the Little Golden Book line. She wrote many of them over the years, including the bestselling classic My Little Golden Book About God.

Caldecott medalists ALICE and MARTIN PROVENSEN began to illustrate books together in 1946, many of them for Golden Books. Their Little Golden Book The Color Kittens, written by Margaret Wise Brown, is a beloved classic.

Little Cow thinks life will be better on the “other mountain,” and convinces a few animals that the grass will be munchier, the bugs crunchier, the water sploshier, the mud sloshier . . . but when they get there, they find that the grass isn’t really greener on the other side. This simple, witty tale, brought to life by Caldecott medalist Feodor Rojankovsky, was originally published in 1963 and is now back in print as a Little Golden Book Classic.

Born in Russia, FEODOR ROJANKOVSKY (1891-1970) immigrated to the United States in 1941. He immediately began working on books for his friend Georges Duplaix’s company, Artists and Writers Guild, which had just begun to produce a new line of titles called Little Golden Books. Rojankovsky went on to become one of the most prolific illustrators of Golden Books. In 1956, he was awarded the Caldecott Medal for Frog Went A-Courtin’(Harcourt).
