If I had a hammer...

Caldecott Honor illustrator Stephen T Johnson's My Little Red Toolbox has all the tools a child needs to hammer, drill, and have hours and hours of fun! Each spread features a sturdy working tool that's easy to remove and great to play with.Kids will even learn about colors, shapes, and counting, too.
My Little Red Toolbox features seven cardboard tools that really work. A pencil and an erasable slate, for drawing up plans. A ruler to measure things. A saw that makes noise when it cuts wood. A drill with movable parts. A screwdriver and screws that turn. A wrench and bolts that turn. A hammer for pounding nails.

So that is what the publisher (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) says about My Little Red Toolbox.
After having a bit of a play with it, the Younger Sun staff agree wholeheartedly that this book is fantastic. Your children will learn about the steps it takes to make something - measuring, sawing, drilling and keeping the parts together with nails or screws. Plus - there is no plastic in sight, just good quality cardboard and excellent retro illustrations. It's interactive - come and check it out today (or tomorrow).
