  Busytown is full of things, places and people to look at and wherever you go you will find there are new words to learn. In the playground there is "sandbox" and "marbles" and on the Bears' farm there are "sheep", "ducklings" a "pigsty", and a "waterpump." If you join the Bear twins in their room in the morning you can learn all the words for the clothes that they put on and if you are lucky enough to go to the zoo with Mr. and Mrs. Mouse you can learn the names of the all animals that they have there including "gorilla," "camel" and "zebra."
  This classic Richard Scarry book with its joyful, often funny pictures and its memorable characters has helped several generations of children learn the names for everyday objects and it has also helped those same children when they are ready to embark on reading for the first time on their own.
