$25-and-under Brooklyn gift #18: Scarry story book

Richard ScarrycropEvery day this month, we’ve been calling out to local merchants for great gift ideas. Today’s selection is from Karen of the Brooklyn parenting site A Child Grows in Brooklyn. Thanks, Karen! Here’s her pick of the day:

The children’s author and illustrator Richard Scarry is loved by graphic designers, artists and yes, kids. This house favorite, Richard Scarry’s Best Storybook Ever, is a whopping 288 pages of stories, rhymes and illustrations. It’s a compilation of Scarry’s best, so you don’t need to buy all his many books. And the thing is well-bound, which will help it last several children. For $15.99, you can get the durable treasury at Book Court in BoCoCa (163 Court St., between Pacific & Dean).
