If you are a loyal Mommy Rambling’s reader you probably know how big books are in our house. I was thrilled to receive the Mary Blair Treasury of Golden Books for review recently. Fans of illustrator Mary Blair will cherish this never-before-published treasury of her Golden Books, which includes material that hasn’t been in print in decades. I Can Fly is here in its unabridged glory, as are Baby’s House, The Up and Down Book, and The Golden Book of Little Verses. Many of the finest pages from The New Golden Song Book are included, to round out this gorgeous collection. All of the original artwork has been digitally reproduced, and has never looked more breathtaking! Academy Award-winning animator John Canemaker—author of The Art and Flair of Mary Blair—wrote the foreword for this highly anticipated book honoring one of the most beloved illustrators of our time.
This is such a special book and the illustrations are just gorgeous. I love Golden Books and so do my kids and these treasurys are so wonderful because you have all of them in one place and it is such a collectible book to have. This makes a great book for bedtime and you can read one or two every night. This treasury is great when you are traveling because you can pack one book with lots of stories for little ones.
