The forces of chaos are strong in the works of Richard Scarry, but in this volume they are so strong to the point of total annihilation and despair. I keep trying to hide it so I don't have to read it aloud again, but I may just have to get rid of it.

This was a good "Richard Scarry's" book but it was very 'busy'.... as most of his stories are. So if you have a child that gets overwhelmed very easily then these stories aren't for them. All the illustrations have LOTs and LOTS of things going on and is very 'busy' looking so even if you just tried to look at each page it would take a lot of time to see everything on each page.

The fire house needs repainted but the fire house is busy doing things that firefighters need to do... everything turn

In this book, Drippy and Sticky are housepainters that show up to paint the town's fire station. They put out a cloth to cover up the fire trucks but the cloth slips and the truck gets covered in pink paint.

one of my son's favorties of the "day in the life" type Richard Scarry books
Grandma bought this book for my two-year-old. The version we have is part of a two-story book (the other featured story is A Day at the Airport). This book features tons of fire engines and opportunities to exclaim, "OH NO!" over big messes, both of which make my son really happy.

The day of a firefighter...well at least in Busy Town! This is another cute and funny adventure by Richard Scarry. The firestation, fresh paint, a house fire, a pile up between several interesting vehicles, and then a Rino's silly mistake make this a silly story that little kids will love.

"It's all in a firefighter's day at the fire station." This chorused tagline is especially enjoyable for us as Daddy is a firefighter. But come to think of it, what ever your occupation (certainly including motherhood) it is one with which most will connect with.
The Brothers
Another very fun story - this time the raccoons are trying to paint the firehouse, but the firemen (pigs) keep messing it up!

This tale, set in the classic world of Busy Town, presents a slapstick firehouse tour with hints of color identification. The text is an overall fun story that avoids the pitfall of being overly busy and fragmented.

Tanner loves this book! It is a silly but fun book. We checked it out after we visited a firestation and Tanner puts on his fire hat everytime before we start reading.
