I love Richard Scarry. Much of my childhood I can remember spending hours on my belly on the floor pouring over some adventure or another with Richard Scarry’s characters. MY favorite was the Big Book of things to do on a Rainy Day, although I’m not sure of the exact title. (We even had a German Richard Scarry from my brother’s childhood – during my father’s military career!)
This book is awesome. Seasonal things and vocabulary make this a great education and entertainment resource. I am delighted to have this for my daughter’s very own first Richard Scarry, but it definitely will not be her last.
