Emma has real doubts about that title. I fought for Richard Scarry, but I'm afraid the 5 year old girl might be right.

Scarry's cartoony fantasy land populated with eyelid-less, anthropomorphic animals was absolutely beloved by yours truly when I was but a wee lad. However, this incarnation has none of the sense of fun found in the Scarry books I read as a boy. Nothing, I mean nothing out of the ordinary happens in Best.... In the Scarry book

THIS IS the best word book ever. EVER. My four year old and I stretch out on our bellies on the floor and read every single word.

"traffic light, telephone booth, manhole, sidewalk, subway entrance, token seller, newsstand, taxi, turnpike or thruway or superhighway, crane, seaport, bay, lighthouse, drawbridge, windmill, forest, classroom, wastebasket, inkwell, desk, pencil, paper clip, scissors, string, lost-clothing drawer, clock, grocer, salmonella infested peanut butter, jam, bread, baby food
This is my most favorite book ever!

My father bought me this book since I was so young that I cannot remember a thing.
As far as I can remember, I always carry this book with me in my early childhood.
I always have this book on my shelf until now. It's on the spot that I can reach everytime I want to open it. I suppose I'll never get bored of this beloved book!

It taught me to read and write. Moreover, it taught me to draw. The great inspiration for me to learn art.
If you have been following my son's book reviews over the years (or rather, the reviews I am writing for him until he is old enough to actually write) you may notice that it appears that we are reading significantly fewer books these days. In fact, we are clocking more reading time than ever, but there isn't much to record on Goodreads these days because we are basically reading the same handful of books over and over again. This book is one of them.
My two-year-old is fascinated by this book. He

Ma fille ADORE ce livre (et moi aussi - j'en ai des beaux souvenirs d'enfance et j'aime encore beaucoup le lire comme parent). L'inconvénient c'est qu'il n'est pas cartonné et qu'elle est un peu jeune, alors j'ai toujours peur qu'elle l'abîme. J'espère qu'on va le garder pour plusieurs années.

When I was four and a half, I taught myself how to read and write with Richard Scarry books; I would make grocery lists featuring all the items from this book we should make sure to purchase; lots of fruit and sugar.

I dislike Scarry's style, I dislike the 50s gender roles, and I am disturbed beyond words to see a pig working as a butcher.

The Offspring, however, both like this as toddlers.

Seeing the cover brings back a deluge of memories! This book started my lifelong fascination with animals dressed as humans. I like it if they talk, too.

It is the very best word book ever and is perfect for teaching print awareness and vocabulary skills. Looking for the worm and discovering new things every time you open the book keeps kids ages 1-3 interested through each page. It's also nice because it's not necessary to read through the entire book in each sitting. Kids have more control over where to start and where to begin. This ability to "control" the book is a great way to encourage print motivation in the younger children.
Hmm ... this is a tough one for me to review. I imagine that this will appeal to some kids more than others. Maybe young introverts would appreciate the detail. (I'm currently reading "Quiet" by Cain with is about introversion.) Instead of using a book, I usually do vocabulary building with our real-world experiences. After I've looked at this with some young children, I may want to revise this review.

Recommends it for: Any child.
This was probably the main book that got me started on reading. I would obsessively memorize the little pictures, the placement of the animals, and gradually, learned what all the words meant beside the pictures. It is done in a way that makes it very easy to learn, and a lot of fun. It's almost like a picture game, you can follow directions or create your own "eye spy" type games from it.

What child wouldn't like this busy little book of characters and things and happenings in Busytown? Each item is labeled with its name (car, brush, mouse, etc.) to help with early word association and reading. Each set of pages features a new scene. Very entertaining for busy minds! Also available in a Spanish version.

On the advice of a friend, I checked the Icelandic/Danish/English translation of this Richard Scarry classic out of the library. I remember reading this (in English, of course) when I was a kid, and now reading it again while I'm trying to learn Icelandic, I have a renewed appreciation for it. Some of the words are, I think, a little dated--I'm not just talking about the presence of TV antennas in the definitions--more words like "salt castor" instead of salt shaker or a "petticoat" being part o ...more

This is the revised edition of the book. There are some notable differences between the two, some dubiously good (there are more females... but you can tell that because bows were stuck on their heads, so not exactly a gain for feminism) and some probably not (the vocabulary was watered down).

However, even with that in mind, this is an awesome book for the toddler and the early reader. There's labeled pictures of very close to everything under the sun, in categories, and there's extra text on ea

I LOVE this book. I would spend hours with it as a child. Making up stories to the pictures, expanding the lands, imagination gone wild!! My children grew up with this and I always give as a gift to new parents!!! Love, love, love!!!

I remember having this book when I was young. I especially enjoyed looking at the pages of the cat family household and the Thanksgiving dinner meal. This book went with me everywhere for months. There are so many words and pictures and the active hustle and bustle of everyday living displayed in this book is captivating. You can always find some activity happening in the book that you hadn't noticed before. Each time you open the book there seems like you find something new. I had to have this ...more

Is it smug hyperbole that Richard Scarry titled so many of his books "Best Ever"? or is it simply the truth? I believe it is the latter. And this book is no exception. New title for Theodore.

I LOVED Richard Scarry books growing up...they are super busy, and filled with eye candy! Everywhere you look there is something going on :) I have the entire collection to share with my daughter now, and they are really fun to look back on. Some of the images are really dated, ex: record players and tv's with rabbit ears, etc... (which makes it fun for me), but doesnt hurt the story at all! My daughter is 2 1/2 and sometimes i see her just sitting in a corner looking thru all the pages on her o ...more

We didn't find this book to be as great as all the high ratings claim it be. Although a useful 'classic' there much more creative beautiful books that serve the same purpose.

Written and Illustrated by: Richard Scarry Genre: Non Fiction Age Level: P Date: 1980
Summary: The book is a random book of subjects that have words and pictures to match. In every page there are over 10 different words and 10 pictures to match. Scarry gives the readers reason to wear his books out and I think that is why he filled his pages with many words and pictures to look at. I think this book forces reader’s to read over again to learn something else. This book is filled with colorful, cre

This is the best book ever! PERIOD.
End of story. You can learn a lot with this book. You learn how a little bear wakes up in the morning and what he eats for breakfast.
You learn how the rabbit family lives. Did you know their TV room is in the attic? Sheesh, I bet no one watches TV in the Summer!
At the zoo, only tiny itty bitty mice named GENTS go there to see the HUGE animals. Must be flooded sometimes with all the drooling the caged animals make.
But hey, I don't want to spoil the book for

Nostalgic for me. The title is not false advertising. I think best to start this book at 1.5 years and use while kids are learning to label their world. Then, they may appreciate it over the years as the humor and silliness grows with them.

It gets no better than reading a Richard carry book. A bear as a police officer; classic!
I love this book. I read it all of the time when I was learning how to read.
