His books have sold over 100 million copies around the world, and are currently published in over twenty languages. Richard Scarry's son, Huck, carries on his father's work today.

i bought this for my 18 month old son and he loves it. We read it all the time. It's small enough for him to hold and turn the pages. It's one of our favorites.

This book is a small board book and fits great into your little one's bag to go. It covers the alphabet in terms of vehicles, some real and some not so real. (Crayon car or banana car.) You just can't go wrong with Richard Scarry.

My 16 month old son loves this book! We actually had to buy a second copy of this book because the first was so well-loved. The size of the book is just right for little hands.

I am a Richard Scarry fan. I have been since I was little and my mom read the books to me until I was old enough to read them myself and wear them out. I now get to read them to my son and he is a fan too. I am on my second one of these because we read this story everyday at least 2-3 times a day or more. Oh and my 17 month old also has a penchant for eating the books as well as reading them. I can't wait to get him the best rainy day book ever. I will also tell anyone that this book is great for girls as well as boys. It also would make a great addition to a shower gift.

This book is ok for learning the alphabet. This is probably not a book I would use in my classroom since I would have other first preferences; but it is still a book about ABC's.

This is just the perfect little board book. A picklemobile (!) a toothpaste car (!) - how could you not enjoy this one?

Any book by Richard Scarry is a hit with the toddler set. The characters are very endearing. I love Lowly Worm and Huckle! The illustrations are delightful and what's not to like about a book chock full of things that go! This is a small kid size book that can easily be tucked into a pocket or diaper bag for 'distraction on the go'.
