Little Kid Reaction

My little builder selected this book - so I wasn't surprised he liked it! He loved seeing the tools and then enthusiastically shouting out the answer to "Whose tools are those?" I knew my three year old would love it, but I was surprised how much my five-year-old enjoyed it. She doesn't normally get interested in building, but this book appealed to her.

Parent Reaction

I also liked Whose Tools>. It is perfect for a three year old in both size and content. The illustrations are cute, the progression is easy for them to understand, and it's fun for them.

Type of Book:
This is a nonfiction board book, that uses rhyme to introduce kids to tools and different types of construction jobs.
Educational Themes:

By 'parternering' tools with the person who uses them, you can introduce young readers not just to what a tool does in and of itself, but the job / person that uses it.
