A must have Dec 19, 2007
A childhood favorite of mine this was a gift to my children. This book covers everything! There are so many things on each page that each time we open it we are talking and looking at different things. Great for kids that are just starting to use 'words' as well as those that are old pros. Richard Scarry makes it fun!
Best First Book Dec 11, 2007
Someone gave me Richard's Scary's Best First Book Ever when I had my baby back in the 80's. My son loved it. We read it so much that I taped it and taped it. When my nephew's wives had their babies, I gave one to each of them. They loved it. Now I give the book as a gift whenever I am invited to a baby shower.
Odd but useful Oct 14, 2007
While there are some oddities in the book (like the parents sleeping in separate beds and Mommy Cat always wearing a dress), it's still a good and solid introduction for vocabulary building. Every page has every item labeled in a variety of situations and places: home, the kitchen, the living room, the laundry room, school, the grocery store, an ice cream parlor, and so forth. It also introduces the basic parts of the body, color theory and counting.
Richard Scarry's books often times contain a running gag of some sort. In Cars and Trucks and Things That Go, readers are asked to find Gold Bug on every page. In this book, readers can follow Mr. Fumble as he tries to catch his windblown hat.The question of where's Mr. Fumble's hat and the often times surreal things depicted and labeled are what make these books so much fun to read.
Richard Scarry's Best Word Book Oct 9, 2007
My adult children grew up with an ealier version of this book. I taught 1st and 2nd grades for 30 years and realize the value of literature in the home. Even though this book is not a form of literature, it is a great tool for vocabulary building. I bought this current book as a Christmas present for my new grandson, who will be 3 1/2 months old at Christmas.
