Product Description

From Amazon

Sergeant Murphy, Huckle, Lowly, Mr. Fixit, and the rest of the Busytown citizens are busy indeed in this big treasury from beloved storyteller, Richard Scarry . Sixteen stories are collected from the classic Richard Scarry's Funniest Storybook Ever and Richard Scarry's What Do People Do All Day?, including "The Talking Bread," "Building a New Road," "The Unlucky Day," "A Visit to the Hospital," and "Sergeant Murphy and the Banana Thief." A whole new generation will giggle at the slapstick antics and gentle misfortunes of Scarry's colorfully drawn animal characters as they go about their everyday lives building houses, mailing birthday letters, and going fishing. In addition to the warm, funny stories, Richard Scarry's books are terrific language builders. Children pore over every page, lingering to find the droll little details they may not have caught their first--or fifty-first--time around. (Ages 2 to 6) --Emilie Coulter

My son previously borrowed this book from our local library and fell in love with it. So I went ahead and bought him a copy and subsequently bought other Richard Scarry titles.
They're great short stories for a bedtime reading session.

5.0 out of 5 stars It really is the best! Nov. 25 2007
By Jen L. - Published on Amazon.com
My two young sons LOVE this book (4 and 2 yrs old). It is a perfect sampling of Richard Scarrry's stories and pictures. My 4 year old picks it out everyday to read during his quiet time. Non readers can enjoy the pictures so much that they can be captivated by it for most of an hour. It has some of his Mother Goose rhymes, some Aesope's fables, plenty of pictures out of his "Word Book" with everyday pictures (ie: "The Kitchen", or "Clothing") labeled with their words, and some very classic and silly Richard Scarry stories. Some pages teach colors, ABC's, shapes, counting, seasons, manners, all about trees, flowers, trains, boats, cars and trucks, and much more! Our family loves the way Richard Scarry (and Patricia Scarry) write stories that look at the world through the eyes of a child - simple, silly, and full of everyday wonder. This book could be a text book of childhood!

4.0 out of 5 stars A delightful surprise Sept. 16 2009
By Domestic Goddess - Published on Amazon.com
Richard Scarry's work was very new to me since I did not grow up in the US. Someone gave my 1-year old his "A Day at the Airport" and I thought it cluttered with its fine type and detailed sketches. "A baby can't focus on those details," I thought. Well, a baby can't, but that baby is now 2-years old, and he can. He absolutely loves the books. This particular volume collects 16 of Scarry's best known stories in a lovely hardback format (makes it easier to handle when in bed). My son adores the playful sketches and we make up stories as we go along since Scarry's gift is his drawing, not his prose or his narratives. The pictures combine "real" things (of steamrollers and back hoe loaders) with childlike characters (Lowly the worm is a current favorite)doing things that our urban son frequently wishes he could. He has learned how a letter gets sorted to get to its recipient, how bread is baked, how roads are made, all through Scarry's playful combination of image and character. As our son grows older, he is seeing more in each image and story and that's fantastic. I'd recommend this warmly for a 2+ year old.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Generation Enraptured June 5 2010
By Katherine B. Jackson - Published on Amazon.com

When shopping for books for my 3 year old grandson's visit, I remembered my son's love of Richard Scarry's books. "Favorite Storybook Ever" is one of the two I purchased. Myles must have requested that book be read to him five times a day!! We poured over the pictures and talked about the funny vehicles like the pickle truck and always had to hunt for Goldbug!
Richard Scarry is a must for any young library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rich in illustrations and very funny April 3 2010
By M. Cavazos - Published on Amazon.com
These books will keep your toddler or preschooler busy just pouring through the illustrations. The /illustrations are detailed and pleasing. And reading the stories is fun for me because they are genuinely funny and sweet.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved these when I was a kid.... Feb. 2 2010
By Kevin A. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
....and so did my daughter. After having read 'Cars and Trucks' (same author) a million times, I decided to go for a new book to read. And read it we did. The stories do not grab her nearly as much as the cool drawings. We read it a million times, and will probably read it a million more!
