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).
