Little Golden Book Giveaway!!

I have lots of Little Golden Books. Let's say we are close to 300 books.

That's shameful.
That's embarrassing.
That's just plain odd.

So in my efforts to tidy up the collection I have decided to have another Blogtoberfest give away of those books a) of which we have two copies, b) I just don't feel the groove when I read them or c) that are a little too 'loved' to be worth reading anymore.

Blogtoberfest Button

So the purpose of this giveaway is not to give away pristine Little Golden Books. Dang, you say!! Not that they are dilapidated but they have seen better days. Not all of them. Some are still in great condition!

But wait, there is a method to this madness. These books are great sources of illustrations for framing for your child's room, pictures for Xmas tags or birthday cards, for use in all sorts of crafts and cleverness.

Here are a few examples of what I mean.....

The title of the books in the giveaway are, in no particular order,:
  • My Home
  • The Shy Little Kitten
  • Mickey Mouse and Goofy - The Big Bear Scare
  • Swiss Family Robinson
  • The Road Runner - A Very Scary Lesson
  • Hansel and Gretel
  • A Day at the Zoo
  • The Three Bears
  • The Happy Golden ABC
  • The Bunny Book
  • We Help Daddy
  • Sleeping Beauty
There will be 2 giveaway winners this time. If you would like to be in the draw to win six of these books then simply leave a comment with a funny quote of what the mother is saying in this picture:
She's waving goodbye at the door to the father and child leaving.... What do you think she is saying???

Comments to be in by 9pm Adelaide time Sunday 26th October.

"No you can't keep him, sweetie, he belongs to some other little girl. Take him back to the park where you found him."

I love little golden books, I have about 12 and love reading them with my little boy!

Miss Muggins said...

To family": "Goodbye dears, have a lovely time at the park. No need to hurry home, I'll just be doing the vaccuming..."
Over shoulder: "I'm coming Fabio...."

I would love to win some golden books to add to my collection. I love them with a passion! (just like mum above's passion for Fabio!)

I know I am easily amused but I had to add another one!! - "WAIT! WAIT! come back....please!!!! I won't do it was just all those baked beans and eggs I had for breakfast!!!"

Miss C said...

"Have a wonderful day at work with daddy darling!!
underbreath...."finally he will understand how much work you get done with a child around!"

BigCat said...

Such a fabulous giveaway. I think she must be saying "what's that you're muttering? I can't hear a word you're saying when you speak under your breath like that. Come back here and kiss me goodbye before you go"

Hmmn, not sure where that little outburst came from.

You can bring him back when he's crawled across broken glass to get me a decent birthday present. A saw horse and ladder don't count!

G'day Gilly!

Lindsay Bear said...

I think she's saying "Please come back! I promise to never break wind at the table again! It just slipped I tell you!!!"

Thanks for doing the great giveaway! I actually just started collecting Golden Books for my baby on the way. I bought some from thrift stores, but don't have any of the ones you mentioned. So thank you for offering such a great contest!!

"Have fun at the dentist." (while thinking to herself, glad it's not me taking the child.)

Whoops, hey that's what I said this week to my husband when he got to take my 3-yr-old daughter to the dentist.
