Best Little Word Book Ever Reviews

    This is a very cute picture book. It is mainly to boost a child's vocabulary and help them identify things in the world around them. I liked how the family are portrayed for the most part - it's always good to see the Daddy do some of the washing up! The artwork is quite good - very simple and cute. Some of the words seem a bit complicated for younger readers. I am not sure how many children will remember 'measuring spoons','flight attendant', 'propeller plane' etcSomething that jarred me was the spelling of axe. I am so used to it being 'axe' that when I read 'ax' it made me question the reliability of the book, until I discovered it was an alternate spelling. It is nice to see a list of the letters of the alphabet, and diagrams of the parts of the body.I think the book starts off with a bit of a narrative (introfucing the family, following them as they go out shopping), then becomes more like a list of places and words associated with them, rather than about the family. It also ends in a bit of a rush. It's a decent enough book though, and with a bit of imagination when reading it aloud, I am sure that children will enjoy it.

    Reviews with SpencerSpencer (3.5) liked the idea of this but didn't get into it as there was a lack of story and he enjoyed playing with tapping the screen more than reading the book

    We borrowed this one through our local library and the READS system with Overdrive to my Kindle Fire. This is such an awesome way to borrow library books. I hope that they will continue to broaden their availability with other books soon. If these as eBooks did not cost the same as the physical copies I'd buy them by the dozens as they became available. I love Richard Scarry from my own childhood and I'm delighted to share these with my daughters, especially my beginning preschooler. The pages filled with vocabulary are great to just stare at and learn things for hours. I really hope she'll continue to love Richard Scarry as much as she does now.

    It's sad that parents don't use books like this to teach their children anymore. I mean, with the never-ending evolution of gadgets, they can just download educational applications on their smartphones. But you know what, I think it's still better to introduce books to your kids at an early age. We shouldn't stop teaching them how to love books because it's one of the beautiful things in the world.Anyway, as for this book, I'll give it a 4 for the illustrations and 5 for the content! :)

    This is the best LITTLE word book ever. If you're looking for the Best Word Book Ever, it's no longer in print. They made it politically correct and removed alot of the charm and humor. No more handsome pilot. Now he's just pilot.Still love Richard Scarry. Just don't love the world that's grown up around him.

    This is a picture book that introduces vocabulary to young readers. It is cute but the page can be pretty busy at times and some words may be to advanced. It points out daily household items and roles, and attempts to modernize gender roles by having the dad wash dishes and referring to certain jobs as person rather than "man" in a middle class hetero family.

    I grew up watching and loving the Busytown of Richard Scarry. This book would be great way to introduce many different words to children. Isn't a read aloud book but it would be good to have for kids to read on their own.

    One book filled with many different words! Perfect if you are looking for a book that names everything around you. It's a great book to start that learning of reading and identifying things. Perfectly enjoyable illustrations and many different identified objects. Making learning easy and fun:)

    Perhaps I will change my mind when my children are older, but a book that starts with a story and ends this flatly is uninspiring for a mother to read aloud.

    Another win from Richard Scarry. I loved these books growing up for all the details, illustrations and subjects they squeezed in and they're just as great now! :)

    Who didn't like Richard Scarry books growing up? I think this was the only time that I realized that Worms could wear pants. Although, it was one side only. The words just come to life.

    Most people like to read just the words but reading the pictures with the words to my kids was an adventure I will always remember!

    Richard Scarry plus LIttle Golden Books equals about as good as it gets. I don't know if Richard Scarry invested cross-section, cut-away illustrations, but he certainly perfected them.
