Reviews - What do customers think about Best Word Book Ever! (Giant Little Golden Book)?
#1 word learning book ever May 23, 2008
I had this book as a child, although the version I had was longer and more PC. This is a great word learning book. The only drawback is that all the characters are animals, so it has to be for a child who knows the animals are simply playing people roles and doing people things. I would recommend to anyone with kids. You cannot go wrong with this book. The older version is better since it has more pages (20 more pages), but it is hard to find in good condition and at a decent price.
Great for language and vocabulary development Apr 29, 2008
I always purchas this book for baby showers and any gift for very young children. It is wonderful to use for early language development or anyone wishing to learn the English names for nouns. My son wore out three copies and I always kept at least one copy in my classroom as well as my home. Cheryl White
Love it! Apr 1, 2008
This was a favorite book of mine growing up. I just bought it for my 21 month old son, and he loves it as well!! A classic that every child should have!
Shorter Version of Richard Scarry's Dictionary Feb 10, 2008
This is an excellent book after the child has understood concepts of numbers, colors, shapes and is beginning to explore the world around them. It explores the home, the market, cars, trucks, planes, and other concepts that are around them sometimes and that they see not only in person, but possibly on t.v. or talk about in school in class or with family and friends. It also covers the parts of the body and clothing items too. LLO'C
Super Scarry Learning Tool! Jan 28, 2008
