Richard Scarry's Best Word Book Ever

Is one of my son's favorite books. I must have read it hundreds and hundreds of times. He knows the words by heart -- if I read one wrong accidentally (or even more fun, on purpose!) he can instantly correct me. We've discussed every single bit of every illustration in it (and the other Busy Town books, too!).

There's a Flickr site which shows you how it's been changed since the older versions, complete with humorous notes.

I really hate that. I don't like it when they make books "PC", especially in such ridiculous ways. It's really annoying.

How do you feel about it? Do you know of any other books similarly "cleaned up"?
