Chunky books are great for little hands, and all children love Richard Scarry books. I first heard about them when my cousins were little, and started buying them when our first child was born. She liked them, as did our second, third, and fourth child. Our youngest is 15 months old, and Richard Scarry's Lowly Worm Book is one of his favorites. He loves to turn the pages, look at the pictures, and ask "What that?". Each page has a simple picture, making it easy to give a one-word answer. Each picture has captions on each element, so that as the child gets older you are prompted to give more detailed answers to the "What that?" question. Buy the Richard Scarry chunky books for your toddler, and keep on buying Richard Scarry books and videos as he/she grows. They are always fun to look at for both children and adults!

"Richard Scarry's Lowly Worm Book" is a Random House Chunky Book. It features a series of pictures with one-word labels on the items depicted: chimney, roof, house, tree, leaf, etc. The emphasis in general is on common household objects; this book could be a good educational tool for beginning readers. The book's title character is seen at least once on every colorful two-page spread. With his innocent smile, green hat, and single red sneaker, the Worm is a charming, likeable character with lots of visual appeal.

A very small book for very small hands. It introduces your child to some simple words and of course, the pictures are the cutest. Our daughter loved this from the moment we got it for her (before her first birthday). She is three now and we need to replace this book. It's been taped back together many times, but the love good to be too much for it.

I can't believe that The Lowly Worm Word Book is still in print. My mother bought it for me when I was a toddler, and it was my favorite book. The chunky size and thick pages are perfect for small hands. I am now thirty years old, and I still have the book.

I love it. The classic Lowly the worm that my husband and I remembered from our childhoods. Just classic Richard Scary artwork and words labeling the pictures. Tiny size, but [erfect for our baby's 11 month old hands.

I heard the background story of this new book on NPR - ordered it for a friend's grandson - and he was ENCHANTED - needed to hear it several times over the first time Debbie read it to Lucas!

This household loves anything Richard Scarry. My kids grew up on him and now my grandkids. My son's first words were "wowy worm"
