The Golden Egg Book

The Golden Egg Book was only recently translated to Dutch and I picked it up from the bookshop the other day as a nice Easter present for my kids. It’s about a little bunny who finds an egg and wonders what’s inside…
Written by the famous Margareth Wise Brown with beautiful illustrations from the equally famous  Leonard Wisegard, it’s a typical ‘Golden Book’. (Available at Amazon US or UK.)

I love Golden Books. I still have my own old copies — my favourite was ‘Katie the Kitten’ about a little cat who slept in a hat in the hallway. I think it’s out of print in English now, but in Dutch it’s still available.
Unfortunately most of my old Golden Books are falling apart — does anyone have a tip for how to repair them without using ugly duct tape?

And tell me — what was, or is, your favourite Golden Book?

The Saggy, Baggy Elephant…I could always relate right after my pregnancies:)

Hilarious- my favorite from childhood was also “The Saggy, Baggy Elephant!” Too funny!

I still have all my old Golden Books too. That reminds me — I should pick them up from my dad’s house next time I’m home.

Oh, my…ANYTHING from Eloise Wilkin. She was a brilliant illustrator. I absolutely love her balloons in Baby’s Birthday, and try to find similar images in everything…the closest I could get was a string of vintage wooden beads with the same shading. Just gorgeous to me.
