Little Golden Books


Little Golden Books came from the idea of George Duplaix, head of the Artists and Writers Guild. He wanted a colorful children’s book that was both affordable and durable. They decided to release the first 12 books at the same time and called them the Little Golden Books. They were first printed in September 1942 and released to stores in October. They sold for 25 cents each.

The First 12 Little Golden Books
1. Three Little Kittens
2. Bedtime Stories
3. The Alphabet A-Z
4. Mother Goose
5. Prayers For Children
6. The Little Red Hen
7. Nursery Songs
8. The Poky Little Puppy
9. The Golden Book Of Fairy Tales
10. Baby’s Book
11. The Animals Of Farmer Jones
12. This Little Piggy

These first 12 are highly sought out by collectors. Within 5 months, 1.5 million books were printed. These first 12 Little Golden Books became so popular that by the end of 1945, they had been printed 7 times.

In 1944, Simon & Schuster started a new division called Sandpiper Press which was headed by George Duplaix. Dorothy Bennett was hired as general editor and was responsible for many of the books subjects thru the 1950’s.

By the 10th anniversary 1952, more than 180,000 Little Golden Books had been sold. By the 11th year, over 300 million had been sold.

On November 20, 1986, the one billionth Little Golden Book was printed, The Poky Little Puppy, which also happens to be the #1 selling Little Golden Book with over 15 million in print.

In 2001, Little Golden Books was purchased by Random House for a reported $85 million.

By 2002, over 2 billion Little Golden Books have been printed with over 1200 titles

Little Golden Books are still published today and printed in more than 42 countries.

    There was a little golden book (spelling?) “The Churkendoose” probably in the 50’s…about a stray egg found in the barnyard. & was kindly sat upon & thus hatched by the chicken, the turkey, the duck & the goose. It was a very strange looking bird….sort of a combination of it’s mothers…but not well accepted in the barnyard until some event occurred (that I can’t recall) & the odd bird was a hero with his own Churkendoose song.

    I have a 1947 authentic Lithogragh of The Three Bears. It is the scene where Goldilocks got caught sleeping in Baby Bears Bed. On the right hand side 3/4of the way down it says: Painted for John Morrell & Co., by F. Rojankovsky. At the very bottom if the left hand side corner it said: Copyright 1947, John Morrell & Co. Does anyone know anything about this piece? Clancy
