PUBLICATION SEPTEMBER 2013
Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Richard Scarry's Best Word Book Ever with this wonderful, fun picture book edition. Join Kathy Bear, Kenny Bear and their Busytown friends to learn lots of everyday words. Illustrated in Scarry's signature style, the book is packed with hundreds of names for objects both familiar and new, grouped by subject, occasion and theme. From colours and numbers to fruit and vegetables to animals, vehicles and so much more, this is a beautifully entertaining way to expand a child's knowledge of the world.
Born in Boston in 1919, Richard Scarry's drawing talent led him to study at the Boston Museum School. He began his career as an illustrator and freelance artist, and in 1963 he published his first book, The Best Word Book Ever, which became an international best-seller.
