What Do People Do All Day?
AuthorRichard Scarry

Beauty and the Beast
AuthorMarianna Mayer

I learned about this book from a good friend's blog and went straight to Amazon to find a used copy. Much to my delight, it looks to be a first edition from 1978 (although I'm not sure how many editions there are). The cover was in horrible condition when it arrived as it was falling to pieces. I...

AuthorRichard Scarry
Perhaps I would be able to appreciate and enjoy Richard Scarry's Busy, Busy World somewhat more if I had first encountered it as a young child (which no, I did not). For yes, I can certainly and to a point both see and understand how the combination of Richard Scarry's narrative and images is imbued with...
