"Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing; and we must bear in mind that growth, physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual, is the sole end of education." ~ Charlotte Mason

Book Sharing Monday: Richard Scarry's What Do People Do All Day?

We're working our way through this delightful book this week. What do people do all day while the kids do their own work and play? These are questions young children are curious about! My kids asked when they were small. When Daddy goes to work what does he do? This delightful book helps to answer those questions. The book covers anything from house/road building, to how the mail moves to where our bread come from.

It's a nice big book with beautiful illustrations. Big enough for the kids to be able to take it all in and enjoy the various phases of the jobs people do all day!

The writing provides just enough information without it being overwhelming. And the kids enjoy the colourful illustrations all quaintly drawn in the back drop of a small city.

Please join in the fun and post your own Book Sharing Monday selections at Canadian Home Learning!


  1. I loved Richard Scarry when I was little!

  2. Richard Scary is timeless. He appeals to children just as much today as he did to the parents he first wrote the books for when they were published.
