The Lovereading4Kids comment
This book is a favourite of Simon Bartram, September 2010 Guest Editor: This Richard Scarry book was etched into my memory at a very early age and I'm sure that, deep down, it has influenced my work to this day. I loved and still love the amazing attention to detail and the humour that pack the pages. Even though it was first published a long time ago and much has changed since, the likeable cats, bears and pigs continue to entertain and educate youngsters about the world around them. Personally I love the fire-fighting foxes and digger-driving mice.
The Good Book Guide Review. They build houses, write, cook, sell newspapers: are policemen, firemen, hospital nurses, crane drivers, farmers, bakers. Full of fun as well as information.
