A classic Richard Scarry Busytown picture book-back in print!
Scarry captures all the hustle and bustle of Busytown through a series of delightful, brightly illustrated stories. Flossie, Big Hilda, Mother Cat, Squeaky Mouse, and a cast of Scarry's popular characters are off to pick spring flowers, watch fireworks at the Pig family picnic, help the mail carrier deliver letters, and celebrate holidays, family, and friends. It's the best busy year ever!
I ordered more than 10 books by Richard Scarry for my two-year old son and this book is one of his all-time favorite. He loves the pictures and reads through it every day since he had this book. He learns a lot from it and has a lot of fun from reading it. And I am sure he will continue to learn and have fun from reading this book in the next couple of years. A Good buy.
This is not one of the best Richard Scarry books. They clearly just edited together other drawings into a compilation with minimally thought out text. That being said, my son still loves it. There are just more creative/interesting Richard Scarry books out there.
It's hard to find this book even as a reprint. This is a great example of Richard Scarry's work - I would say solid example that's why it gets 5 stars and not six. Has a place on every child's bookshelf.
My family loves these books. The kids look at them for hours. My husband has Scarry books from his childhood, so the stories are timeless!
This is the 8th copy of this book I have purchased. I give them as baby gifts to all baby boys. It is THE classic!
You can't go wrong with ANYTHING by Richard Scarry. Not only do I buy in-print products, but search the web for out-of-print as well!
Grandchildren enjoy listening to the store and looking at the pictures, which are illustrated well, with plenty of color. enjoyable
