Richard Scarry's Best Little Board Book Ever (Richard Scarry's Busy World)


Richard Scarry's Best Little Board Book Ever (Richard Scarry's Busy World) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Concepts like colors and simple words have never been easier and more fun than when presented by Richard Scarry. Here are two classic board books, THE COLOR BOOK and EARLY WORDS, available for the first time together in one volume.

Frannie the bunny shows you all the important words to identify what's in your room, your bathroom, your closet, the kitchen, and the playground. Then Mr. Paint Pig introduces eight colors that brighten the world. 

Originally published in 1976, these two bestselling board books sold a combined 500,000 copies. Now, bound together for the first time, this is the must-have title that's just the right level for young minds and just the right size for small hands hands. 



About the Author

Generations of children all over the world have grown up spending hours poring over RICHARD SCARRY's oversized books filled with all the details of their lives. No other illustrator has shown such interest in the day-to-day words and concepts of childhood. Scarry was raised and educated in Boston. After five years of drawing maps and designing graphics for the U.S. Army, he moved to New York to pursue a career in commercial art. But after showing his portfolio to one of the original editors at Golden Books, he found a home for himself. In the extraordinary career that followed, Richard Scarry illustrated over one hundred books, including almost thirty Little Golden Books and ten Big Golden Books, many of which have never been out of print.
