we like to read – richard scarry’s best storybook ever

richard scarry is one of my all time favourite illustrators. his work is so colourful, expressive and undeniably, instantly recognisable as his. this, like many other childrens books i own is from a charity shop. every now and then here i find some amazing ones! you can buy this book from amazon if you can’t find it in a charity shop or used bookshop near you. it’s one of my favourites and i love looking through it.

did you ever watch ‘the busy world of richard scarry’? i loved that too! i remember when i worked in the library at school there was a pc game about it too that i loved playing. if you (or you and your little ones) love children’s illustration/books, you should check out and contribute to fritha of tigerlilly quinns’ posts called ‘we like to read‘.
