An Abridged Edition of the original, “Richard Scarry’s What Do People Do All Day?” first published in 1968.
This doesn’t have the original chapters such as, “Mother’s Work is Never Done,” “Digging Coal to Make Electricity Work for Us,” or “Sergeant Murphy of the Busytown Police Department,” but keeps some of the classics like, “Where Bread Comes From” and the beloved, “Firemen to the Rescue.” A “modern” version, it seems!
“This is Busytown. My, what a nice town!
Some workers work indoors and some workers work outdoors. Some work up in the sky and some work underground. Some workers always do their work at the same place.
Others travel from place to place to do their jobs. What does your Daddy do? What does your Mommy do? And what do YOU do? Are you a good helper?“
