This BIG Golden Book is my absolute favorite children's book! I thought it would be appropriate to share with you today, with it's huge beautiful egg on the cover. The illustrations are so colorful, and I just love the book's woodland theme. It's lush background is full of black-eyed susan's, butterflies, pansies, bluebells, wild strawberries, and field mice. I actually named my blog after this book. That's how much I love it!
"The Golden Egg" is about finding something magical and unexpected. Something you never knew you needed, but now you can't live without. And most of all the book reminds me of my sweet little Grandma, who gave this special book to us when we were real little. I hope you enjoy it too!

You can find it in the "Little GB" size now. Perfect for Easter Baskets!
FYI: There are a couple other versions that don't come close to being as pretty as this version!
Ok..I'm going to post lots of pics! Here They Come! Read Along! :)
...and no one was ever alone again.
I hope your Easter was "Golden".
