Best Word Book Ever - Kitchen
Originally uploaded by kokogiak.
A fascinating collection of images from Richard Scarry's "Best Word Book Ever," which underwent numerous changes of wording and images between its 1963 and 1991 editions to show greater sensitivity to flexible gender roles as well as to update some cultural referents of the cowboys & Indians variety.
