5.0 out of 5 stars Over 2,500 words with 1000 pictures! We want a reprint! Aug. 18 2000
By Rebecca of Amazon - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Richard Scarry books are delightful and teach children about life and language. This particular book is one of the most interesting ways to teach children over 2,500 words.

On the inside cover all the animals introduce themselves. There are cats, mice, pigs, bears, chickens and just about every animal you can think of. These entertaining animals appear on various pages and help to tell the story of words.

The words are organized according to the alphabet just as in an adult dictionary. Most of the words are used in a sentence and they all have illustrations. Some of the items are combined into one large picture. When "Ali Cat" is coloring on one page, each crayon and the color is displayed on the page. The words: colors, colored, coloring are also typed next to the original word "color." In this way you can use all the words in sentences to teach your children even more word usage.

Yes, there are plenty of silly things to make children laugh. I found the artwork very amusing in some places. There are so many pictures, you cannot possibly see everything in one, two, or even three readings. This is a book your child will enjoy for years. I would like to see a reprint of this classic children's dictionary.

5.0 out of 5 stars A children's classic Dec 2 2006
By calvinnme - Published on
Format: Hardcover
My youngest sister was born in 1965, and I remember when she got this for her fourth birthday. She and I both had many children's books as youngsters, and this is the one that both of us remember best. I would read to her and show her the pictures, and it would hold her interest even at that young age. She would laugh with delight at the antics of all of the animals in the book, particularly "Babykins", a particularly ill behaved kitten sitting in a high chair and throwing its food around with a spoon when nobody was looking. When my sister was grown and had her own children, this is the book that she would mention as wanting a copy of to give to them. I highly recommend it. Besides having a method that works at holding children's interest, you just don't see craftsmanship in illustrations like this anymore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Richard Scarry's Stroybook Dictionary July 3 2000
By Vicky Hepperle - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful book for children to pour through on their own, or read to them, (one letter at a time), for learning letters, we read about the letter we've been working on that day. For increasing their vocabulary, and understanding of vocabulary, it's been invaluable. The pictures are there for the more visual learner, and for the younger ages. When you read a word, it will show all forms of the word, plus use them in sentences. The sentences and pictures are humorous, using situations we encounter every day, or feel grateful that we haven't. I think it also helps with learning to deal with difficult situations that we encounter too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scarry's Dictionary for kids July 8 2013
By Carolyn - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Our two daughters, now in their 40's, loved this book and my husband would read to them from it each night when they were young. My oldest daughter laid claim to our old beat-up copy as a childhood token so I bought another used one for my granddaughter because I didn't like the new versions. She is now enjoying Grandpa reading it to her. Wish the publisher would republish this version with all the new words.
5.0 out of 5 stars After 30 years I still have mine!!!! Nov. 3 2011

I've had this book since I was six and I've cherished it always. When little I read it a thousand times over. When it came to it, this was the only childhood book I could not part with. Now as a parent myself I have new levels of appreciation for it and I can't wait to introduce it to my son. It has great drawings, great characters, and great values imprinted in the short stories. If you're a parent that enjoys reading and want to pass on the habit to your kids, this is a great book to help you do so.
