Richard Scarry is one of the best-known and most beloved authors and illustrators of books for young children. His books are perfect for teachers and parents to share with pre-readers. Through the books, vocabulary and concepts are introduced that every kindergarten child should know. His charming, humorous illustrations invite readers to take their time to explore all the detail, which provides children with the wonderful experience of sharing a book together.

We have two collections of Richard Scarry’s books: a collection of large-format hardcovers designed primary for classroom libraries, and a collection of smaller-format books that are perfect to take home for sharing between parents and children. (Note that many of the take-home books include a sheet of stickers, which can be easily removed by teachers or librarians.)
