This week's theme at The Broke and the Bookish is one I couldn't resist: Top Ten Covers. I narrowed my selections to Golden Books, that classic yet oh so affordable series started in 1942. A book cost 25 cents back then, quite a bargain. Through the years dozens of children's books top illustrators produced for Golden Books, including Garth Williams, Richard Scarry, Alice and Martin Provensen, and James Marshall. Below are some covers I particularly cherish. They are just the tip of the iceberg.
Which Golden Books are your favorites?
