Now available for the first time in picture book format, Richard Scarry's classic title, What Do People Do All Day?. Packed with pictures and things to spot on every page, this classic has been refreshed to bring the world of Richard Scarry to a new generation of readers. What do people do all day? Everyone is busy in Busytown - from train drivers to doctors, from mothers to sailors, in police stations and on fire engines. Follow a colourful collection of busy people working through their busy days. Captain Salty and his crew are getting ready to go on a voyage, Sergeant Murphy is working hard to keep things safe and peaceful, and engineers are building new roads. Another busy day in Busytown!
Fair. A readable copy only. All pages and the cover are intact, may not include dust jacket. Pages may include considerable notes in pen or have highlighting. Possible ex library copy. May not contain accessories.
Very Good. The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. 64 p. Colour illustrations. Intended for a juvenile audience.
Used-Good. This book is in good condition. All pages are intact, there are no tears to the book and the book is nice and clean. The pages might be slightly dog eared through previous use and textbooks might have a small amount of highlighting but nothing which will obstruct getting the maximum out of the book. Customers are protected by 100% refund guarantee if they are not happy.
The original edition and the one that covers all a four-year-old would ever ask about. How do trees get from the forest to furniture? How does hydro power make electricity and how does it get to us? All told and pictured with huge good humour and lots of jokes, but the pictures have enough detail to do the explaining. I chose this edition over the updated one which, admittedly, has female animals doing more different jobs, but cuts down on the information.

A childhood treasure
An excellent book. Not the exact edition I was looking for, but good enough.

Found at last an UNabridged copy of What Do People Do All Day? WHAT is Golden Books thinking, to abridge this classic for young children?!
