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.

This books is by a graphic artist and the pictures are beautiful. They are modernistic and clean but still brightly done. Your child will enjoy them. This helps the child understand that there are different types of tools for different jobs rather than just the tools typically in a tool box (such as a doctor, tailor or electrician). We read this to both a toddler and infant both liked this book.
