I wanted to get an older copy of this book and found one in good shape from the UK, (never giving a single thought to the vocabulary differences between our great countries!) now I am enjoying nappies instead of diapers, lorries instead of trucks, dust bins instead of wastebaskets and biscuits instead of cookies. Richard Scarry's books have a remarkable way of communicating with children, with comfortable characters and gentle humor he makes day to day life interesting and fun. The Best Word Book Ever is a wonderful vocabulary builder, but more than that it expands minds and encourages conversation. ( )

This is the book that I credit mine and my sisters ability to read at the age of three.

This book is wonderful for children learning to read. Everything in the book is labeled. It shows all different aspects of daily life from getting ready for the day to getting ready for bed at night.

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 each page asking questions or asking the child to identify subcategories (for example, on the page of small things the reader is asked which of those things are commonly put on a wall - a great way for mom to get some quiet time while kiddo pores over the book!)

Everything we loved about Richard Scarry as kids, with the added bonus of gender-bias correction (i.e. it now says "police officer" and shows a woman, rather than "policeman.")
