    "very best"

    Hi everyone!

    As we know,"best" is the super comparison of "good",but I heard someone say "very best" (like "the very best child","the very best of iceland") I wonder if "best" means "very very good,very very excellent",why did people still say "very best"?

    Thanks for helping

    It's just for added emphasis- Iceland's a great place, with many fantastic sites, but this one is even better than the other ones, etc.
