Is there a Richard Scarry fan club?

If there isn’t, there should be.  That man got my family through more plane flights, car rides, restaurant meals and waiting rooms than I can count.  Once I found my first Richard Scarry book, I was hooked and on the look out for more.

I kept his books in my car and in my bag, just so I’d always have one on hand.  They kept my kids “busy” but they also encouraged them to think and create.  His characters became household names and we jokingly wove his stories into our lives.  The pages of our Richard Scarry books are worn and some are torn, but we won’t put them in the giveaway bin because when you find a treasure, you hold on to it.  So, if there isn’t already a Richard Scarry fan club, let me be the first to sign up!
