Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect first dictionary! RICHARD SCARRY'S BEST WORD BOOK EVER is just that, the best word book ever for young children. Hundreds of words used in everyday langauge are represented in this fun, first dictionary. Scarry's Busy Town characters introduce chidren to the world of words. Each page is dedicated to a different category of words such as "Tools", "At The Playground", and "At The Supermarket". Also included are the ABC's, number words, and words for parts of the human body. Oprah Winfrey recently chose this book as one of the books she would recommend for children learning to read. I think this book is essential for every child's library. It is Terrific!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! My daughter absolutely loves this book. She is 1 and a half and doesn't seem to get tired of it. Everyday she makes us read it to her. She will literally sit for an hour as we go through the pages. She has learned a great deal of vocabulary from listening to us talk about what is happening in each page. There are so many details and little things to look at. It's very engaging and entertaining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still the Best Word Book Ever My sister and I spent hours as children reading this engaging book. We loved the illustrations, looking eagerly on each page for the comical surprises Scarry placed there for us. The book was so much fun, we didn't realize how much we were learning. Today, 30 years later, I'm ordering it for my daughter!
