Perfect for putting in a doll or bear's hand, these Tiny Golden Books were published in 1948. Each one tells a story about an animal and teaches a lesson. Each is colorfully illustrated and delightful to read. This set came in a box that was made to look like a little room. Unfortunately there is damage to the box as well as two of the 12 books...it looks like something was eating away at the paper over the years. At any rate, there are 10 good books here which could be used separately. Baby Bears, Baby Lion, Tiger Kitten, Little Kangaroo, Little Elephant, Baby Camel and others will give you reading enjoyment and put a smile on your face! Some minor marks on covers or pages can be expected in books such as these as they are over 60 years old but will not deter from their readability...covers are hard like other larger Golden books.
