When Little Golden Books were first published in 1942 by Random
House, when high-quality books for children hadn’t been available
at a price most people could afford. Little Golden Books changed
that! Priced at just 25 cents and sold where people shopped every 
day, they caused an instant sensation and were soon purchased 
by the hundreds of thousands. Created by such talented writers 
as Margaret Wise Brown (author of Goodnight Moon) and Richard 
Scarry, Little Golden Books have helped millions of children 
develop a lifelong love of reading.

        Children's Book Authors : BIRTH | Aug. 12–Zerna Sharp (Dick and Jane Books)


        Dick and Jane
        are the two main characters created by
        Zerna Sharp
        for a series of
        basal readers written by William S. Gray to teach
        children to read. The characters first appeared in the
        Elson-Gray
        Readers
        in 1930 and continued in a subsequent series of books
        through the final version in 1965. These readers were used in
        classrooms in the United States and in other English-speaking
        countries for nearly four decades, reaching the height of their
        popularity in the 1950s, when 80 percent of first-grade students
        in the United States used them.
