This is a whole lot of fun to look at with kids. There are so many drawings on each page--enough to keep little kids engaged for a few minutes per page. I really like Scarry's drawings especially the pickle cars!

I love Richard scarry. This book is great but our family favorite is the transportation book he did with a golden bud hidden on every page. I loved that as a child and my kids thinks it's the best as well!

One of my favourite books as a child. All his books were great; there was just so much going on in the pictures they could keep you amused for hours.

This book is particularly good for early grade ELL (English Language Learner) students. It provides a large, illustrated and fun list of everyday vocabulary.

This is part of my niece's Christmas present. This book might be taller than her - it is a 24" tall board book!

This was one of my favourites when my children were young, and one of theirs as well. In fact, we consumed a cart-load of Scarry. Soon, I can start again with my grand-children!

This book is as tall as a pre-schooler. Our kids loved lying on their tummies looking for Lowly Worm on every page of this giant book.
