Find out why Little Golden Books make great gifts.

Ever since their debut in the 1940s, Little Golden Books have made a name for themselves as an American staple. With their sturdy covers, compact size, and affordable price tag, Little Golden Books made picture books — traditionally much larger in size and expensive — more accessible to kids.

Little Golden Books are popular gifts of choice for schools, literacy programs, and nonprofit organizations. Their price point and size make them ideal gifts to buy in bulk. These are a few of our bestselling Little Golden Books during the holiday season:
