About Richard Scarry

As a young child, Richard Scarry books were my absolute favorite !
And much to Mr. Scarry's credit, I owned more than a few copies that were read so much that they were held together by tape ... and more tape .... and more tape ....

Today is the birthday of Richard Scarry, born in Boston (1919). He's the author of more than 300 books for children. He said that what made him happiest as an author was receiving letters from people telling him that their copies of his books were all worn out, or were held together with Scotch tape.

Happy Birthday Richard Scarry.
