Huh, I guess Richard Scarry actually had kind of bad values--not, like, Nazism or bearbaiting, but "pretty stewardesses," shrieking women everywhere, weirdly pedantic focus on cars and planes, minor stuff but kind of turnoffs. Oh, but he was born in 1919. And to his credit, he let them update his books with the times. But this is the old version. ( )

A selected sampling of Scarry's work from his various Golden Books.

I recommend this book all the time. It is a wonderful book for a child to grow with. It has everything from the alphabet and colors to easy reading stories to bedtime stories to read to the little ones. Good to carry everywhere for those times when the kids are getting cranky. Lots to occupy their busy minds. ( )
