About the Author
MARGEAUX LUCAS began drawing constantly from age four. Her love of picture books came from the many hours she spent before bedtime reading from the collection at her grandmother's house. Margeaux's work reflects her love of fashion, nature, and the many shapes, sizes, and colors that people come in, plus the constant exuberance of children.

First, the quality of these "Little Golden Book"s is overwhelmingly disappointing. Very thin and nowhere near the quality of years gone by. This book will not survive much use. The binding is really thin for a book, even a child's book. Pages are thin as well. I'm really disappointed over the quality we get for our money in the US. Everything's quickly and cheaply made, and this is no exception. It's yet another purchased item that can be improved with ingenuity, but one shouldn't have to do so.
The writing is another abysmal disappointment. I'm not sure why there are such glowing reviews. Millennial parents who do not understand the purpose of MLGB series, perhaps? Let me explain. These books are intended for LITTLE CHILDREN. You are supposed to read these with young children, and they are supposed to learn reading with you as you read these books over and over. Holy mackerel. It's written way above the grade level these are meant for, and older children are not going to want to read a MLGB (because they "are for babies")! Do you know many 5 year olds who know the meanings of "graduated", "scholarship", "discrimination", “disagreement”, or, my favorite, “dissent”, which is, in fact, an AP 9th grade vocabulary word. Aye caramba! Additionally, it uses contractions which should not be used for early readers so they can first learn where the contractions come from. This book is completely unintelligible for younger readers, and older children are going to need something more meaty than a children’s book written for Little Man Tate.
Let me give you an example of the MLGB series. Pokey Little Puppy is one of the books! Does that tell you something about how out of place this is? RBG was an amazing woman who deserves books about her to be written at the appropriate developmental level. There was a great children's book to be written here, but instead this was slapped together without any consideration to child development. The story is fine, but it's sloppy writing not to consider the reading level of the child for whom the book was supposedly developed. The way this is written, children will be bored and frustrated. No wonder reading and academics are declining here, if we are developing products for growing minds without applying the basics of child development. People spend years in graduate school learning how to produce age and developmently appropriate learning tools. I suppose the writer does not realize this. Very frustrating.
Finally, the drawings left me a little underwhelmed. They weren't terrible, but this. Is. A. Picture. Book.
I think the reviews are not for the book but for the life of RBG. I give RBG 10 out of 10 stars. Must not miss! This book, oh no. It almost deserves the “oh no no no” Tik Tok treatment. I will restrain myself however, but I think it'd be funny to get the expression of a confused 5 yo set to music being read this age inappropriate book.
I wish I could time travel back to the 70s with this book so that we could make fun of it back then. Sorry not sorry. This was a swing and a miss. A complete missed opportunity.
Our oldest has inherited not just my collection of golden books from the 80s and 90s, but also my mother's from the 60s and early 70s. And the quality is the same as those older books. Now if you didn't not keep your collection from earlier years, I can see why you would think it wasn't, because obviously you were smaller back in the day and details of how a book was made just didn't rank top on your list of what a quality book should feel and look like.
Is the writing a little advance, sure maybe, but my 8 year old had no issues reading and comprehending this book. But we also have an open policy with our children that they can ask us any question if they do not understand something. This book is a teaching book. It's made to ask questions and be talked about. If you do not have the time to do that, I wouldn't buy this book for your younger children.
Now claims from another review said that they did not understand why this book has received such "glowing reviews" and yet blamed it on that fact that the people buying this book are millennials. I'm not sure what a generic blanket response that is. But incase anyone has forgotten, millennials are full grown adults, who were basically told college was the only way or they would fail. So a lot of that generation is very well educated and were the experimented generation of growth test and pushed to exceed in language arts. So maybe don't insult a full generation in a review, that has nothing to do with this book, simple just say you could not comprehend this children's book, it's okay. No one will fault you for your short comings.
Are right in point with the classics, just as RBG herself.
Use this book as a tool, it's a great book and my 8 year old loves it. It's a conversation piece for sure, and it even helped my daughter with a school project in the 3rd grade. We took the time to read it separately and together and asked questions. No it's no "Poke Little Puppy" but this book isn't a fairytale, it's about a real life.
