This updated visual dictionary, first published in 2005, features more than 700 clearly labeled images of inanimate objects, food items and living things. A section called “The Living Room” contains common items including a remote control, telephone and DVD player. Among the animals living “In the Forest” are a slug, owl and stag. Though the items are sometimes inconsistent in their scale (a pink roll of toilet paper is as large as the toilet beside it), the artwork (and assorted reader-directed questions) will engage the curious. Ages 4–8. (June)
