Lovely Richard Scarry illustrations but the stories didn't seem all that suited to bedtime.
Britteny Gilge
The illustrations in this book were very well done and helped tell the story as it progressed. In this book there were actually multiple stories that were being told. I found most of them just okay stories, but the last story I really enjoyed. It added humor to an unfortunate day. It takes the reader through all of Mr. Raccoon’s unfortunate encounters- car breaking down, pants ripping, and to top it off just when he thought nothing else could go wrong during the day his bed breaks. This would be ...more

I didn't find the stories appealing at all

This is a short collection of bedtime stories for preschoolers. Most of the stories were simply boring, but there were two that I downright disliked.

Kekeke... lucu >w< kucing....

I love every stories in this book and really love the illustrations <3
In the last story, I can't help to laugh and feeling the guilty pleasure laughing at someone's bad luck....
I saw the Richard Scarry's cartoons when I was little and I adored them. It was so funny to find the books and have a chance to read them. I found out I still enjoy these stories and that made me happy.

Richard Scarry's illustrations are adorable, but I think they work best with classics (eg The Gingerbread Man) or his more informational books (eg What Do People Do All Day?). The stories in this book are sometimes cute and sometimes seem to strain for some sort of point or ending.

I loved Richard Scarry books when I was little, especially the pictures, so I love sharing them with my kids. Cute stories- a little off-the-wall, but really fun.

I'm not sure what I think of this one. I love Richard Scarry activity books and busy day... the informative. Encyclopedia type, but this one wasn't very exciting and ended in a lurch.
