Who do you think of when you see a hammer and a saw? A carpenter! What about a shovel and a watering can?
In Taro Miura's deceptively simple book children will discover more than sixty different tools, both familiar and new. Even the youngest readers will find the striking images engaging, and older children will be fascinated by the chance to guess which profession uses each set of tools before they turn the page. A wonderful tour of a variety of jobs and the tools they use to fix, build, and create.
Taro Miura is a multiple-award-winning illustrator and graphic designer. He lives in Japan.
" . . .a highly suitable choice for both home and school use. . . . The spare text and heavy paper are perfect for young children, though older children interested in tools will be drawn in, too." Kirkus Reviews
"This excellent easy reader is a must for updating those well-worn titles in your collection." School Library Journal
