Later in the run of the first (and most collectible) six hundred Little Golden Books, the price changed from 25-cents to 29-cents (oh, that inflation!). We Help Daddy (#468) is a 29-cent Golden Book, written by Mini Stein and illustrated by Eloise Wilkin. In its own way, one of the most progressive titles in the LGB line: while Daddy does the typical man chores (cutting hedges, painting the fence, hanging pictures) and Mommy is stuck in the kitchen cooking, Sue and her older brother help Daddy with his jobs. Brother Benji helps with each task...but Sue lends a hand as well and proudly states, "I help, too." Early feminist literature? A first edition (A) in Fine condition.
