My family much prefers Scary's "Best Storybook Ever." Smaller (at about 10" by 7" instead of 12" by 10") but much thicker, this book is easier to manage in size and matter. I disagree with its recommendation for only slightly older children, because it still contains colors, numbers, shapes, animals, counting, manners, emotions, activities, months of the year, and the alphabet, but this time with more spacing and order. I think all it is missing from "First Book" is body parts. A collection of little storybooks about the above subjects, it has fewer and clearer concepts per page. In addition, "Storybook" also contains 82 actual character stories for the older preschooler/younger grade-schooler, as well as a good collection of Mother Goose rhymes. "Best Storybook Ever" will grow with your child, teach your child, and entertain your child much better than "Best First Book Ever" will.
I have bought over 100 children's books the last two years and this is at the top of my list. The book is packed with pages with illustrations that are up and beyond the average child's illustrated book. Richard Scarry was a wonderful artist with a keen understanding of children's minds.
Every single page has between ten and thirty items in context that my child is familiar with or we have experienced. My child stares at the pages longer than any other book and seems to just love this book.
I just checked the Amazon price and I can't believe how little it costs compared to the other books I've bought.
