Summary
This nonfiction ode to building a house from the ground up features six kinds of craftsmen and the 24 tools they use, accurately labeled. The answer to each inquiring refrain is revealed under a gatefold, seven in all, engaging the reader in an informative guessing game. With lyrical (and factual!) text by New York Times bestselling author Toni Buzzeo, and the expertly stylized art of illustrator and designer Jim Datz, this sturdily constructed board book is perfect for curious and playful young readers.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Chalk line, linesman pliers, and utility knife might not be vocabulary you think a toddler needs to know, but tools are unassailably awesome, and kids will love adding these new words to their tool kit. Seven colorful double-page spreads present steps for building a house adding floors or lights, for example and the tools needed for the job. Then readers guess Whose tools are these? before opening the tool page gatefold to reveal professionals male and female! at work as carpenters, electricians, and so on. The precise language paired with smiling, cartoon renderings of each tool make this an accessible and fun approach to learning.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This delightful guessing game-style board book introduces 24 tools and the tradespeople who use them. "To build a house, start down low./ Whose tools are these? Do you know?" begins Buzzeo as googly-eyed, boot-wearing versions of a chalk line, jointer, chisel, and float smile at readers on a foldout page. Opening it reveals a mustachioed mason, who explains, "I smooth the cement until it's flat." Women are well represented among Datz's carpenters, roofers, electricians, plumbers, and painters (who are drawn in a range of skin tones), providing a subtle "you could do this, too" message that is cemented in a closing scene of two children playing with blocks in the finished house.
