Originally with this blog, I thought I didn't want to get too deep into Little Golden Books, but seeing as there are just so many awesome ones out there and they make up such a large portion of everyone's childhood book memories, it can hardly be escaped. That said, I am choosing a Richard Scarry book aptly because when I was little, he was my absolute favorite. In all of his books, there was always so much to see and do. It was AWESOME. You could look at the same title again and again and again and never see the same picture the same way twice. My son loves them for the very same reason I have to imagine. (Well, that and they are all about animals for God's sake!)
B is for burrow. Guess who lives in the burrow under the apple tree?
Or perhaps it was the constancy. The same little worms and kittens and rabbits inhabited all the pages... and even in early books like this one, you can still see those familiar little faces peeking out from the pages right into your soul.
J is for jump. Froggie jumps for joy. He loves ice cream.
