    The sweetest little story for anyone who loves tools. So simple and sweet. We bought this book for our 3 year old son with autism and he thinks it's him and his dad in the book. Just so so sweet. Our son loves tools and always runs and gets his tool box to pick out the tools as we read it to him.

    My 2 year old simply adores this book! He is obsessed with all things related to building and this book covers it! It's a fairly basic board book, but has pictures of all of the tools that he likes, so he's able to look at the pictures and memorize what each thing is. Very cute for a tool-obsessed toddler!

    I was a bit disappointed in this. It has lovely pictures but the narrative is sparse and not very interesting. I can't remember when it was originally published but it felt somewhat "old-fashioned". I bought it to go along with some toy tools for my grandson's birthday. I decided not to include the book with his gift.

    I bought this for my 2 year old nephew based off the reviews from the moms who had boys who 'loved' tools and loved looking through the book and pointing out the tools. I am not a fan. It's a dry read and very 'simple'. Could have been more fun/ colorful/descriptive.

    Simple, old-school pictures and text. My 2-year-old grandson loves this book and chooses to read it often.

    I am in love with this book. It is simple, but beautifully illustrated. I saw my preschoolers going back to this book on multiple occasions. It is a great vocabulary building book. I love that it is a board book!

    Wonderful accompaniment to the Wooden Take Along Tool Kit. Reinforces all the vocabulary and experiences with such an active and engaging toy.
