Ricard Scarry's very first Book, Margaret Wise Brown's Two Little Miners, was published by Little Golden Books in 1949 and though he contributed to numerous Golden Book publications in the intervening years, he didn't become a household name until the 1963 publication of Richard Scarry's Best Word Book Ever. This remarkable publication contains more than 1400 objects, illustrated and named. Interestingly, this slightly later edition (1967) does not yet incorporate the most significant changes later made, eliminating sexist stereotypes in the animal figures. Here, male bunnies, bears, pigs, and dogs drive cars, deliver mail, police the streets and farm vegetables while female animals push strollers, cook dinner and play with dolls.
