Great Big Schoolhouse is lovingly remembered by generations of American children whose first day at school was undoubtedly made easier by Scarry’s warm, friendly, and comforting classroom. Huckle’s life changes forever as he joins his classmates on the school bus; meets Miss Honey, his sympathetic teacher; and learns the alphabet, new vocabulary, numbers, the days of the week, and the hours of the day. Of course, there’s recess, show and tell, and
a few unexpected adventures, too! Young readers are welcomed in, as they’re asked to help some of Huckle’s friends answer Miss Honey’s questions.Beautifully produced, this is the perfect gift for any child approaching school age—and the flip side of the dust jacket hides a fun surprise: a Richard Scarry A-Z wall poster.

This is another of the Scarry greats; one of the best things is the consistent labeling/naming of random objects. It's so helpful for vocabulary building.The book has information about the alphabet, numbers, colors, measuring, writing, etc. It's not really a story, but you follow a set of characters throughout the book. Not really enjoyable as a bedtime story, it's better suited for children who are independent enough to go through the book leisurely by themselves or with a patient adult.
