Everything I Need to Know
November 25, 2013 - Amy Phelps
For kids at heart is a great gift book, "Everything I Need to Know I Learned From a Little Golden Book" by Diane Muldrow (Random House, $9.99.).
The cardboard covered books with the gold foiled spines have been published since 1942, delighting several generations. This book takes a nostalgic look at the books by using illustrations from the books in a new "advice" book. The book advises the reader to get dressed in something nice, have some pancakes and to frolic and daydream. It tells the reader the simplest things are the most fun and to savor the seasons as they roll around. It celebrates everyone's uniqueness and friendships and urges them to make a big deal out of their birthday!
This is a nice book for those who have warm memories of the books of their youth.
