'Everything I Need To Know I Learned From a Little Golden Book' series gets two more titles

Love- and Disney-themed titles in the series by Diane Muldrow, which offers life lessons based on the Little Golden Book series, will be published.

The 'Everything I Need to Know I Learned From a Little Golden Book' series is by Diane Muldrow.

The little bestseller that could, Diane Muldrow’s “Everything I Need to Know I Learned From a Little Golden Book” is spawning still more sequels.

Little Golden Book editorial director Muldrow’s first book was released in 2013 but has been a mainstay on the IndieBound bestseller list ever since – it’s currently at number nine on the Hardcover Nonfiction list for the week of Dec. 4. The book details such life advice as “Be a hugger” and “Don’t forget to enjoy your wedding.”

Muldrow’s holiday-themed follow-up, “Everything I Need to Know About Christmas I Learned From a Little Golden Book,” was released this past September and is currently at number 10 on that same IndieBound list.

Now fans can look forward to at least two more sequels. A romance-themed title called “Everything I Need to Know About Love I Learned From a Little Golden Book” will be released later this month on Dec. 23, while the series will celebrate Disney characters this summer. “Everything I Need to Know I Learned From a Disney Little Golden Book” will be released in July.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”

If you’re looking for bran muffin journalism, you can subscribe to the Monitor for $15. You’ll get the Monitor Weekly magazine, the Monitor Daily email, and unlimited access to CSMonitor.com.
