Golden Legacy: Original Art from 65 Years of Golden Books


Back in 1942 before your grandparents were born, or maybe when they were very young, the first Little Golden Books were published.  Since that time many children have read and enjoyed such classics as The Poky Little Puppy, The Color Kittens, and Home for a Bunny.  Many famous authors and illustrators created books for the Little Golden Books.  You might recognize some of their names: Margaret Wise Brown who wrote Good Night Moon, Richard Scarry (Busy, Busy Town) and Garth Williams who drew the pictures for Charlotte’s Web.

Now you can see original artwork from the Little Golden Books.  Bring your parents and grandparents to the exhibit at the Main Library, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, November 7 through February 21.  This exhibit was organized by the National Center for Children’s Illustrated Literature in Abilene, Texas.
