Everything I Need To Know About Love
Well the day after Christmas I received in the mail the third in
Diane Muldrow's nostalgic Everything I Need To Know series:
Everything I Need To Know About Love I Learned From a Little Golden
You probably have fond memories of Little Golden Books from your
younger days. Some of us made them part of our kids' childhoods.
Affordable and accessible, for many kids they were the only books of
their very own their families could afford.
Everything I Need To Know About Love.... is another great stroll
down memory lane. Sweet thoughts are paired with illustrations from
our favorite little Golden books: The Color Kittens, Tawny Scrawny
Lion, The Jolly Barnyard, The Saggy Baggy Elephant, Nurse Nancy... A
1951 Eloise Wilkens drawing of a boy bringing a heart shaped box to a
house where a little girl watches through the window tells us "Love
makes you bold!" Garth Wiliams 1956 picture of two wide eyed rabbits
instructs us to, "Be ready to take a chance..." My personal favorite,
a family of four cleaning up from a meal reminds us that, "But mostly,
love blooms in life's day-to-day moments."
If you know a Little Golden Books affecianado this would be a
perfect Valentines Day gift.
On a personal note, I want to wish my readers a (safe and) Happy New
Years and a year full of blessings. I shall stay up til midnight
reading near my beautiful Christmas tree and eating candy with Joey
cat on my lap. I'm enjoying the last few days of tranquility til life
gets more hectic.
A great big shout out goes out to my readers who stuck with me this
year and the authors who provided wonderful books that I could
review. Let's see what 2015 brings.
