Publisher Comments:

Richard Scarry is one of the world's best-loved children's authors EVER! Generations of children all over the world have grown up spending hours pouring over his books filled with all the colorful details of their daily lives. No other illustrator has shown such a lively interest in the words and concepts of early childhood. Whenever he was asked how old he was, Scarry would always put up one hand and laugh, saying, "five!"

In his extraordinary career, Richard Scarry illustrated over 150 books, many of which have never been out of print. His books have sold over 100 million copies around the world, and are currently published in over twenty languages. Richard Scarry's son, Huck, carries on his

father's work today. Richard Scarry was posthumously awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Society of Illustrators in 2012.

Synopsis:

Kenny and Kathy Bear and their Busytown friends introduce new and familiar names for objects grouped by subject, theme, and setting, in the city and on the farm, at the dentist and at the grocer's, in the kitchen and at the circus, and all the places they frequent.

Synopsis:

It all begins with the alphabet. But when it's Richard Scarry's Best Word Book Ever, it doesn't end there. From home, to school, covering everyday objects and broad concepts, young readers will be engrossed as they look at the oversized pages and identify all of their favorite things: toy, trains, cars and occupations and much more. From a tiny dot on the "Little Things" page, to one whale on the the "Numbers" page, this classic favorite contains almost everything in a little one's world.

About the Author

Words, words, words! They define everything and kids want to define their world. Richard Scarry's Best Word Book Ever is frankly the best word book ever!!! From the Bear's home to the beach, from the airport to the zoo, verbs, numbers, parts of the body, every oversized spread has hundreds of things  to look at, point to, and identify. Pigs, cats, rabbits, and bears, all doing what we do every day—playing with toys, driving fire engines, and experiencing life, just like the avid readers of this classic favorite.

In print for fifty years, this book has sold over a half million copies. . . . That's over a billion words learned by children all over the world. 

Learning has never been more fun!

This was my favorite book when I was a child. Truly an amazing reading experience. I learned not only how to read but what certain things were, since Richard Scary masterfully labels hundreds of objects within his beautiful illustrations. I am so thrilled to know that these wonderful books are still available for new generations of children to enjoy!
