  Sometimes we wander what it is that people do with themselves all day. Well, now is your chance to see what the people in Busytown do on a typical day. As we walk down the streets we see all the busy characters of the town doing their work. We see Pickles Pig driving his pickle delivery truck and we see the policeman directing the traffic. There is Farmer Haystack taking care of his chickens and Farmer Pig giving his cows their hay. We can even see how the postman collects a letter written by Huckle Cat and how it is taken by truck and plane all the way to Grandma's house. We see all the jobs that need to be done to take care of a home and its garden, why we even see what it is like to be a fireman in Busytown.
  For that little child who always wants to know what is happening when he or she is in school, this book is perfect. With pages of engaging illustrations to explore, it is a book which will be looked at and read again and again.
