  Let's visit Busytown with Huckle the Cat and some of his friends. As we go from place to place, from the farm to the town, from the town to the harbour, we not only see all sorts of interesting things but we also learn a lot of new words and new ideas. We are going to look inside Huckle's cunning little house and later we can watch what happens at the railroad crossing in Busytown when the train is going through.
  In addition to visiting Busytown and meeting the delightful collection of animals who live there, we are also going to learn about sizes, numbers, colors, shapes, the names for the parts of the body, all about good and bad manners, and much more.
  Packed with Richard Scarry's detailed and signature illustrations, this book would make a wonderful introduction for a small child to the author's world of Busytown. In the company of Huckle the Cat, Lowly the Worm, Mr. Frumble, Miss Honey and many others small children can learn so much from this book. With over seven hundred words to discover and all sorts of funny accidents to laugh about, small children and new readers will be kept very busy looking through the pages.
