Today I bring you another favorite book from my childhood. It’s uninspiring title, The Big Golden Animal ABC, belies the fun and fantastic illustrations (by Garth Williams of Little House on the Prairie fame, no less!) inside.
Published in 1954 by Golden Press, little bunnies cavort through the pages, interacting with an animal for each letter of the alphabet.
I remember the yak being one of my favorites—mainly because I thought he had a funny name. Notice the bunny preparing to comb the yak’s hair?
Thumbing through this book’s pages brought back fond memories of learning my alphabet. Spud has already claimed it as a bedtime story favorite.
