Richard Scarry's Best Word Book Ever (Giant Little Golden Book) [SPECIAL EDITION] (School & Library Binding), by Richard Scarry. This large word book is jam packed with scenes of every day life, Richard Scarry style. 71 colorful pages focus on a whole host of fun topics, like fire engines, trucks, counting, seasons, foods, toys, the playground, and the beach. There are a few sentences per oversized page (see excerpt), but the words/pictures really steal the show. In fact, I'm not sure I'd even read the sentences until I opened the book to type up this review.
"The Pigs are buying groceries for their family. What would you like to buy next time you go to the market? Would you like to buy a pickle?""
Bookworm's interest at 18 months: He loves the entire book. It is 71 pages long and he signs "more" as soon as he gets to the last page. He loves to be quizzed to find items in it.
Parent's Peeve: Looks like we'll have to buy a copy!
