I think that the book that I'm looking for the title to is about going to Grandma's for Christmas. Anyway some things that I remember about the book is:
"chop chop chop goes the secret in the woods"
"stitch stitch stitch goes the secret in the kitchen"
It might not have been a Golden Book, but I think it was. The approximate year would have been 1950's or early 1960's.
The one that I was able to locate on Amazon is by Cynthia Rylant & Diane Goode. Is this the one you were referring to? I looked at as many pages as it would allow me to and did not see the quotes I mentioned.
