Book Title: Richard Scarry's Best Storybook Ever!

Author: Richard Scarry

Book Description:

This is the first book I ever read by myself, at around age four. We lived in a neighborhood with no other children, so this book, among others, became a respite from boredom and loneliness for me.  I spent hours pouring over the stories of Huckle Cat and Lowly Worm, and developed a love for reading that has continued throughout my life. The library became my "candy store" from this early age on, and I believe this kindled my desire to research, to question, and to attempt to understand the world around me.
