One of our all-time favorite childhood books was The Poky Little Puppy by Janette Lowrey. It is a story of enormous moral consequence involving misbehavior, prevarication and, finally, the loss of dessert. That is one of the real-life situations covered in the 70-plus-year-old (published, perhaps not coincidentally, in the year of our birth) Little Golden Books series. Muldrow, the series' long-time editor, takes the life lessons embedded in the stories and, in a nostalgic and uplifting way, brings them up-to-date as a self-help text. Hokey? Maybe. But the illustrations are worth the $9.99 and the walk down Memory Lane.
