Richard Scarry is one of my favourites-I had his books as a child and couldn't wait to share them with my children. He creates detailed illustrated worlds, starring Huckle the cat and his many friends. The pig family are one of his favourites and he enjoys seeing the same characters reappear in Scarry's many books (I like Lowly the worm!). I like asking my 2 year old to point to things, like the car, the post office etc. This book contains lots of stories about the world of work, and my boys find it fascinating.

The busy design of the pictures in Richard Scarry books are always engaging and perfectly match his slightly eccentric text. This book is no exception. It is a lovely collection of stories about jobs that people have. Our family favourite currently is the story of how roads are made (a subject my four year is currently very interested in).,It is an excellent factual explanation that is told in a simple and engaging manner. All the stories are delightful, and this is a book that I would definitely recommend.

My 2 year old insists on this book now at bedtimes. It's full of lovely illustrations, and the familiar Huckle and Lowly characters. It sheds light on the mysterious world of the grown up and what jobs they might do. My son always asks to see the firemen bit first. I took a point off because the book seems a bit dated and ever so slightly sexist, women are shown mainly as house wives or assistants.

First couple of pages were interesting and my daughter enjoyed talking about jobs we did and people did. She did enjoy looking at the pages and finding things but as the book went on she soon got bored and couldn't  understand the pages and got frustrated. The pages were a bit too busy for her and she struggled.
