Following the initial (and enormous) introduction and success of Little Golden Books, publisher Simon and Schuster scrambled to expand the line. In addition to Little Golden Activity Books, Big Golden Books, and Giant Golden Books came Giant Little Golden Books, volumes that mimicked the same size and format as LGB's but had close to 60 pages as compared to the former's 40 or so. Sporting a spiffy red, white, and blue star spangled binding, Giant Little Golden Books ran the gamut of subjects and were illustrated by some of the favorite Golden Books artists. Here, Mother Goose Rhymes (#5016) sports pictures by Feodor Rojankovsky and "154 Childhood Favorites" nursery rhymes. A first edition (A) Giant Little Golden Book in VG condition with some exterior wear.
