Arthur the aardvark and his friends are back again, this time to expand young readers' vocabularies. Marc Brown's really truly helpful word book--reminiscent of Richard Scarry's work--is chock full of labeled objects, from tea kettle to tuna fish to circuit breaker to rock star. A brief paragraph introduces each page, leaving readers free to peruse the lively pictures and words at their leisure. The very young child will use the book to learn the names of things, while children a bit older will develop and hone their new reading skills. Different settings--school, Daddy's kitchen, the beach in summer--allow readers to see learning opportunities in their everyday lives. Arthur's popularity and TV-star status among youngsters will inspire them to read on! Full of motion, color, and life, this book will be an automatic favorite. (Ages 2 and older) --Emilie Coulter
From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 1. Arthur, his friends, and his family present thematically arranged words to pique the interest of youngsters and engage them in vocabulary-building and object-identification activities. Arranged in single- and double-page categories?house, school, zoo, supermarket, storyland, etc.?the busy pages, done in the style of Richard Scarry's work, are chock-full of spare text and labeled illustrations. In addition, each page has borders with even more small, identified drawings related to the theme, resulting in hundreds of words accessible to young children. Cover-to-cover fun.?Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE
