I remember buying Golden Books for my oldest daughter. She got a whole bunch from her Nino for Christmas when she was 2 yrs. and she would read all of them!
My youngest daughter inherited these books, most were markered and colored and torn but she still made good use of it. One of the books, "The Three Bears" I used to read to her all the time and she memorized it so when she got into kindergarten, for show and tell, even though she couldn't read she told the whole story, flipping the pages like she knew what she was reading, all from memory it was soooo cute!
Sigh* They're all grown now, my youngest is 14yrs going on 15yrs in March and my oldest is 26yrs with 2 sons of her own. BUT I still have some of these Golden Books in my Memory Box :))))))
