 Question about value

I found a box of LGBs some of which were mine from about 1956 and others from my daughter 1978. She now has a 2 year old son. I want to give him some of the books but, obviously, I need to know if they might be valuable. I haven't gone through the other books yet and I really appreciate any help you can give me. I am totally new to the value of children's books - the oldest ones I have were passed from me (1956) to my sister (1959) to my cousin (1963) to my daughter (1978) and now to my grandson (2009) (If they aren't valuable). Some were purchased by me for my daughter in after 1978. I'm not concerned about making money on them; I just don't want him to possibly tear up something that is valuable. I might entertain a sale if someone needs it for their collection, but I just want to instill the love of books to my grandson.

Thank you in advance for allying my fear that he's going to rip up a $50 book.


The ones I have chosen to take him are:

Lassie and the Big Clean-up Day copyright 1971 (GHIJ)
Old MacDonald Had a Farm copyright 1979, 4th printing
Mickey Mouse The Kitten-sitters copyright 1976, 11th printing 1981
Porky Pig and Bugs Bunny Just Like Magic copyright 1980, 7th printing

I cannot speak to the non golden ones but the golden ones have little value.

Thanks! I can give them to him without a lot of worry then. I appreciate it. I was not able to find much online about them.
