This is a very cute picture book. It is mainly to boost a child's vocabulary and help them identify things in the world around them.
I liked how the family are portrayed for the most part - it's always good to see the Daddy do some of the washing up!
The artwork is quite good - very simple and cute.
Some of the words seem a bit complicated for younger readers. I am not sure how many children will remember 'measuring spoons','flight attendant', 'propeller plane' etc
Something that jarred me was th

I loved this as a child and I am now brainwashing my son.

Richard Scarry plus LIttle Golden Books equals about as good as it gets. I don't know if Richard Scarry invested cross-section, cut-away illustrations, but he certainly perfected them.

We borrowed this one through our local library and the READS system with Overdrive to my Kindle Fire. This is such an awesome way to borrow library books. I hope that they will continue to broaden their availability with other books soon. If these as eBooks did not cost the same as the physical copies I'd buy them by the dozens as they became available.

I love Richard Scarry from my own childhood and I'm delighted to share these with my daughters, especially my beginning preschooler. The pages f

Perhaps I will change my mind when my children are older, but a book that starts with a story and ends this flatly is uninspiring for a mother to read aloud.

Good book

we got this book for our son and we really liked it very much.we would definitely recommend to all parents.

Was one of my favourite childhood books, and it still is to this day.
Another great vocabulary book from Scarry.

It's sad that parents don't use books like this to teach their children anymore. I mean, with the never-ending evolution of gadgets, they can just download educational applications on their smartphones. But you know what, I think it's still better to introduce books to your kids at an early age. We shouldn't stop teaching them how to love books because it's one of the beautiful things in the world.
Anyway, as for this book, I'll give it a 4 for the illustrations and 5 for the content! :)

Cute characters, great game for finding and naming things in this picture book
This is the best LITTLE word book ever. If you're looking for the Best Word Book Ever, it's no longer in print. They made it politically correct and removed alot of the charm and humor. No more handsome pilot. Now he's just pilot.

Still love Richard Scarry. Just don't love the world that's grown up around him.

Most people like to read just the words but reading the pictures with the words to my kids was an adventure I will always remember!
I grew up watching and loving the Busytown of Richard Scarry. This book would be great way to introduce many different words to children. Isn't a read aloud book but it would be good to have for kids to read on their own.
Who didn't like Richard Scarry books growing up? I think this was the only time that I realized that Worms could wear pants. Although, it was one side only. The words just come to life.
Another win from Richard Scarry. I loved these books growing up for all the details, illustrations and subjects they squeezed in and they're just as great now! :)
viv loves scarry and this is no exception. seems like a lot of repeat pages from other works. still, it's words and she loves that!
I used to read these when I was little and am glad to se Nico loves to read this over and over. It's great for picking up vocab.
