Two classic Golden Books return as Golden Sturdy Books-tall board books for little fingers. The Up and Down Book by Mary Blair was originally published in 1964 and features several bright and cheerful children demonstrating the differences between up and down (""My umbrella goes up when the rain comes down""). The Rooster Struts by Richard Scarry (1963) illustrates the gaits of numerous animals including a wiggling worm, soaring eagle and the sloth that ""hardly moves at all."" .
