Reviews - What do our customers think?
A GEM!!! MY ALL TIME FAVORITE CHILDREN'S BOOK (moooooore stars!!!!)  May 12, 2008
I got this one as a child, back in the sixties. My copy is in Dutch and although a little weathered it's not falling apart yet.
The copy I'm reviewing here is a reprint that misses several spreads, but sad though it may be, if you don't know about it you won't miss it.
Richard Scarry shows different "people" (animals in clothes), all kinds of professions, how they interact and how one depends on the other. And in doing so he introduces a child to society where we all depend on one another.
More than anything else he was responsible that I grew up to be free minded and open spirited person. Whatever a human being does for a living, if he/she does it with love he will make your day.
A policeman, a baker, a newspaper man, a writer, photographer or singer, the postman, the bus driver. We all depend on one another. And as long as we try our best to understand that and accept and respect our fellow citizens we will be on the right path.
His drawings are world famous. They're sweet and funny without being too simplistic. No matter what family, the rabbits, the mice or the pigs, even the worm, they're all lovely characters with different personalities.
It has always been my first choice as a gift for kids.
Great Book  Mar 27, 2008
This book will keep your little one occupied for several long minutes and then some. Great book to keep in the car or at Nana's house.
The Best Kids Book Ever  Feb 19, 2008
I have a 4 year old and a 1 year old, and I'm ordering another copy of this because the first is already worn out and ripped. If you have a curious child or want your child to be curious, then this is the book for you. Younger kids like to look at the pictures, and I read the text to the older one. This book and "Cars and Trucks and Things that Go" are his favorites and have been since about age two. We have many many Richard Scarry books and videos and they're all a hit.
Treasure of a book!  Jan 28, 2008
The title of this book, Richard Scarry's What Do People Do All Day, pretty much sums it all up! Here are page after page of action packed illustrations and clever little stories of how people work!

Even young children who haven't learned to read will be able to follow along, understanding the activities being described. Richard Scarry's books have entertained and educated generations, and this book is proof of his amazing abilities!
My 3 year old loves this book!  Jan 2, 2008
My 3 year old loves this book - even "reads" it to herself after we read some of the stories to her. She loves the "How bread is made" story, especially. Richard Scarry knows how to weave silly stories into real life and make it fun.

It's big enough to capture attention for a longer time period than simple board books, and entertaining enough that you'll like reading it too.
