This is an excellent book for reading with the kiddos and has all sorts of fun things for them to learn...That said, I will warn you that, in my experience, it's best not to discuss the characters Huckle and Mr. Frumple at the same time, because then your 2.5-year-old son will conflate them into a new character named "Fuckle." This will make your wife laugh uncontrollably, and you will spend the next 5 minutes doing damage control and trying to convince your son that his mommy is laughing at the...
Frankly speaking, When I first read this book I was way to old for it. My brother got it for his 3rd (?) birthday and fell in love with it immediately. He refused to let go of it, took it everywhere he went. Curious as I was (and still am), I took the book in a moment that he was not there and liked it very much too. The humor, drawings, words that were explained, fantastic!So, when I got the chance, I let my son read it too. And the story repeated itself :)
My 22 month old son LOVES this book! It is full of words and pictures of things that he sees everyday, and he surprises me now when he can point to the pictures and name the things that he sees without me telling him what they are!
Simply the best
This book makes me crazy because I feel like I should read every word in it, but my two year old son loves it and wants it at bedtime. We compromise by following Mr. Frumble and his hat.
I had this book when I was small! Tbh this is pretty dated in a lot of ways. The illustrations are extremely cluttered, but I remember that part being super fun when I was little.
Enqi said I like the story the cat got shot and didn’t cry, and so is she.
We love Richard Scarry!
While there are some oddities in the book (like the parents sleeping in separate beds and Mommy Cat always wearing a dress), it's still a good and solid introduction for vocabulary building. Every page has every item labeled in a variety of situations and places: home, the kitchen, the living room, the laundry room, school, the grocery store, an ice cream parlor, and so forth. It also introduces the basic parts of the body, color theory and counting.Richard Scarry's books often times contain a r...
Read it again this year, but made a game of finding the different objects mentioned in the book, from tools, fruits, vegetables, ships, boats, farm equipment, chores, among the many objects and actions found in daily life.Aug 1, 2013 A1 and A2 had fun learning about colors, the alphabet, counting, good manners, shapes and sizes, the months of the year, and more than 700 words. Yes, I slightly modified the description of the book to suit my review. I have always been a fan of Richard Scarry's boo...
Packed with Richard Scarry's detailed and signature illustrations, Best First Book Ever would make a wonderful introduction for a small child to the author's world of Busytown. In the company of Huckle the Cat, Lowly the Worm, Mr. Frumble, Miss Honey and many others small children can learn so much from this book. With over seven hundred words to discover and all sorts of funny accidents to laugh about, small children and new readers will be kept very busy looking through the pages.I read this f...
Richard Scarry books have so much to offer. I really considered this a five star book for a lap book. Picture books have just moved so far away from these classic styles that I find it hard to apply five stars, only because of practicality . This is a lap and point book, this is not a read aloud book. I think the illustrations are beautiful; I love the labeling in this book, and all Scarry's classics, but this is just so busy, again, I find his works distracting.

Wonderful book! Covers a ton of basic topics with fun, colorful illustrations featuring Richard Scarry's classic characters that I loved as a child. There was so much to read on each page that I read a little to my 8-month-old son at a time. He was so fascinated by the busy pictures that he kept leaning forward and batting at the pages! We are sure to revisit this book many times in the future.
This was my favorite book as a preschooler. So when I had my son, I naturally picked a copy of this book up. He LOVES it as well. The illustrations of day to day activities plus the word association is fantiastic.
I remember these from my childhood. Grabbed one at Powell's the greatest bookstore on earth. I love the rotary phones and lack of technology vocabulary options. And searching for lowly the worm is super fun.
If you do not smile at Scarry's kitten family then you are a bottomless void of despair. Also, Scarry's influence is obvious in the set design of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.
I remember this book from when I was a kid so perhaps it gets stars for nostalgic value. My children now love it. It is pretty timeless... Well, except for the outdated box television set, radio and landline telephone! Oh we'll, it now has historic value too.
This book is busy and full. I wish that it was more travel sized, because this is the sort of book that occupies for a long time rather than a quick story read.
Richard Scarry's Best Storybook Ever! を買ったので、内容を比べるために図書館で借りてみました。遜色がなかったのでざっと眺めるだけにして図書館に返しました。同じ内容がBest Storybook Ever!に載っているのだけどイラストの絵柄は違うもので、私はBest Storybook Ever!の方が好みのキャラクターでした。
This is one I'm considering buying because my 2 year old loved it so much. I think I may have had this book as a child because a lot of it felt familiar.
She can't get enough of it!
Awesome book ~ can keep a toddler entertained for a long time! Highly recommend for waiting rooms, airplane travel...anywhere a little one will have to sit for extended periods.
Super cute book! Great illustrations!
A fun, exciting read to your children about the world inside and out! Teaches children manners and politness towards others and the world around them! My kids loved this book!!
viv loved it. lots of words.

I almost forgot about Richard Scarry! When I think of my childhood and my parents reading to me, this author is one of the first to come to mind.
