ABOUT THIS BOOK

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! 

 

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

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.
