    Little Black Sambo is a childhood favorite. Some consider it not to be politically correct but I fail to see something wrong with a little Indian boy (he is from India) who wants pancakes and eats them with tiger butter!

    Childhood Favorite- I am sure this book is not even available anymore. Totally politically incorrect. Hey remember this was a diner back in the day.

    still have mine... The most controversial Little Golden Book was Little Black Sambo. However, the word “sambo” is considered a racial slur in some countries and the book has been one of the most controversial books in existence. In 2004, Little Golden Books released a new version titled The Boy and the Tigers. The boy in it is called Little Ranjani. Today, a first edition regularly brings values of $150 or more.

    Little Black Sambo. It was a perfectly fine children's book back in the 40's and 50's.

    Childhood Favorite - I loved it when the tiger turned to butter from going around the tree,, unfortunately most kids today won't have the wonderful memories of this book... they destroyed it and took it out of everywhere because it was supposedly racist...

This is one little golden book I wish I could afford to buy! I love little golden books. (We were just talking about this story the other day...)

This brings me back to when I was a very little girl. Always said this, over and over!

I remember reading these every week... but in the 70's not the 60's Do they still have this?

The Lonely Doll was one of my favorite books as a child.

Green Shield stamps. My mum bought these in the early 70s, to 'save up' to buy things for our home. I remember seeing books and books of them.

Ok I'm thinking you are wondering why this is on my "things that scare me" board but can you think of anything more creepy than a cookie man running down the road... KK

LOVED these books...read them all in no time from my public library

Bobbsey Twins! I read every one of these in the series about 2 sets of twins.

Loved, loved, loved the Bobbsey Twins! This was the exact book me and my twin sister had. Loved it.
