Best Little Word Book Ever - Children's BookRichard Scarry
There is definitely something magical about the Little Golden Books.
It might be their signature gold spine, or the way they crack open when new, with their hard chipboard covers and soft inside pages, or it could be that each one has a place for you to write your name in it on the inside cover -- no matter what it is, they evoke strong emotion and nostalgia.
The undisputed master of the anthropomorphic is Richard Scarry, and the Best Little Word Book Ever! has taught generations of kids to lust after apple-cars and be friends with worms.
