A 'Little Golden Book' For Grown-Ups

Last week, while buying some storage tubs in BigW, I happened to wander into the book department... I love books & this one is something a little different...
This book takes images from some of the many Little Golden Books, & applies a little 'life lesson' for adults...
These pages are sending me a message or two!
Love this one, about making a budget & sticking to it... I definitely need to be doing that from now on... And having a check-up, hhmmm, I've not been to the dentist for a while...
The small writing you can see at the bottom of each page is a description of which Little Golden Book the image appears in... so many fun pics & words... And yes, so many little reminders about the things in life that actually do matter.

Found this cheeky pic online, I don't recall it in any Golden Book I ever saw!!

 (UPDATE: Just to clarify, the book 'Everything I Need To Know...' is not a Little Golden Book publication, but is written by a former long-time editor of the Books)

Hello Anthea,

I love the Little Golden Books for adults, though they will never get me to the Dentist no matter how much they try!.

Happy days.

Lol, I love the last one hehehe. I loved my Golden books and get quite upset with the new trend of cafes tearing the pages out and replacing them with menus. Thanks for making me smile.

Love Golden Books. I bought that copy back in December & have been looking for the next one they put out. I was in Big W waiting on my daughter who was looking at clothes, strolled through the books just looking & lo & behold found the book i've been wanting. :) Hugs,xx

What a beautiful book - I love it! The kids and I have been reading our Little Golden Book these holidays. Some are very, very old. I love the old ones the most - the illustrations are just beautiful. Funny, I was just 'pinning' some online resources on budgeting!!
