Recommended Books for Children: Richard Scarry’s Best Storybook Ever


Richard Scarry’s Best Storybook Ever is one of the Reading Kingdom’s recommended books for children. Reading expert and Reading Kingdom creator, Dr. Marion Blank explains why:

Can you imagine compiling every object that exists in a child’s world? It seems impossible —but Richard Scarry has achieved this feat. From home, to school, to the neighborhood, to the zoo and on and on, this amazing author and illustrator brings the world to a child’s fingertips. This book is a magnet for children and they turn to it, again and again. It’s also a wonderful aid for adults. Whenever a child requests an explanation of an unfamiliar name (such as locomotive, shutter, appliance), you can offer an answer by pointing to a relevant illustration that is bound to exist somewhere in the pages of this amazing compilation. So along with being a great book, this material is wonderful for building vocabulary..
