When Little Golden Books were launched in 1942 at twenty-five cents each, they changed publishing history. For the first time, children’s books were high quality, and accessible to almost all children, not just the privileged few. They were an instant success story, and even during World War II and when paper shortages loomed, they sold like hotcakes.

Now, the classic Little Golden Books that you loved as a child are even more stunning and captivating in Richard Scarry’s Best Little Golden Books Ever.
