Generations of children all over the world have grown up spending hours poring over his books filled with all the colorful details of their daily lives. No other illustrator has shown such a lively interest in the words and concepts of early childhood. For himself, whenever he was asked how old he was, Scarry would always put up one hand and laugh, saying, "five!"
In his extraordinary career, Richard Scarry illustrated over 150 books, many of which have never been out of print. His books have sold over 100 million copies around the world, and are currently published in over twenty languages.

Our 4 year old loves R. Scarry - Lowley the worm one of our favorites. We were extraordinarily disappointed with "A Day at the Police Station". An infant lost from the mom, a ghost in the bathroom (great help for potty training) I mean come on. Weak effort, not thought out - too bad. 3/4 of the book is great but that 1/4 just overwhelming.

Another fantastic Richard Scarry educational book, with his world of anthropomorphic animals in Busytown and Workville.
Mrs Murphy has to go to Workville and asks Sergeant Murphy look after Bridget.
Sarge takes Bridget with him to the police station and here Bridget watches Sarge respond to a scare by Hilda Hippo, helps him take a lost toddler back to the police station and call her mother, respond to an accusation by Mr Gronkle of a robbery and rescue Bananas Gorilla after his bananamobile plunges into the water.
Always fun for children as this one teaches kids about a typical work day at the police station, and why being a police officer is very important.
I learned to read with Richard Scarry and am glad to note that the Richard Scarry corporation is still coming up with books about his characters.

We love the illustrations and usually just make up a new story each time. It is fun to look at the details and discuss what is going on. The books enable a fun interactive experience for parent and child.

I love Richard Scarry and have some wonderful memories of being read his books as a child. I wanted that experience for my children and the books brought me back a significant amount of nostalgia and feelings of comfort.

Each page is loaded with beautifully illustrated pictures that allow for extended conversation and what if questions to engage the child. We easily spent half an hour talking about all of the cute little images packed into each page.

Wonderful fun, wonderful memories!
