This board book is one I remember vaguely from childhood. It very simply illustrates what some tools are and what they do and how they're used. I can see how it might be interesting for a child who may have seen these tools before (and who hasn't?) but doesn't know what they're called. In the back of my mind, I thought that if it were written today, it might have a twist at the end where it turns out that the toolbox belongs to the child's mother instead of the father but I digress...
A great introduction to various tools. I got this out for Natalie because we see it almost every week and because we've done some improvements recently and she's seen tools about. She paid attention, but wasn't that interested in this one.
