5.0 out of 5 stars Hours of Busytown fun!, February 5, 2011
This review is from: Richard Scarry's Big Busy Sticker & Activity Book (Paperback)
I bought this book for my 4 year-old daughter, who loves Busytown, and it has been a huge hit! I've been through dozens of preschool workbooks with my son and daughter, and in my opinion this is absolutely the best I've ever seen! There are about 90 pages of sorting exercises, mazes, dot-to-dots, counting and color-related activities, shape and pattern identification, finding the differences between two pictures, and much more. Stickers - there are more than 20 pages of them! - are incorporated into every single exercise in one way or another, and between finding and placing the stickers on the pages and completing the activities, we've already spent more than two fantastic hours "working" on this book and aren't even done.

Part of what makes this book wonderful are Richard Scarry's familiar characters - Huckle mixing cans of paint, the Pig family in their car - and his unmistakable illustrations rich with color and detail. Many of the pages seem almost as if they've been lifted right out of my long-treasured Scarry books! But, more than that, the activities themselves are just so creative and fun. We loved helping Able Baker Charlie decorate his cake, sorting letters with Postman Pig, helping Miss Honey's class complete their alphabet chart, and, of course, chasing after Mr. Frumble's fly-away hat. My only regret is that this book is only 90 pages long instead of 9,000. Fantastic and unhesitatingly recommended!

Nice review, but the description states the book is 144 pages long not 90.

I think the description is including the sticker and answer pages in the total given. There are 90 actual activity pages, but I'm sure the total is much more if you include those other pages.
