Another fun book by Lola Schaefer. Many students,especially boys can relate to this book and girls can boost about the person in their home who fixes everything. Thus, a self-to-text lesson would be great for this book.
It has some fun rhyming
It can be read in science when discussing simple machines

Vincent and his daddy both have toolboxes. They use their hammers, awls, levels, saws, pliers and more to fix things around the house.

I read this to PreK when they were learning about tools. It's okay, but I probably won't borrow it from the public library next year. They liked Chris Monroe's picture book about Chico Bon Bon, Monkey with a Tool Belt, much better. (Who wouldn't?)

My son Loves this book! My husband is our Mr. Fix it, and our son loves helping him, so seeing this father/son fixing things around the house intrigues him. He likes that Vincent has his own toolbox and tools, just like his daddy. I like the use of the tools' names and sounds they make in the rhymes. My son likes to look at the pictures of the tools and see how they use them to fix things.

Cute rhymes, lots of little projects for Vincent and Dad to work on together. Mom's in the background with a baby in a couple of scenes. I'm on the lookout for similar books with less predictable gender roles, but this world is what lots of kids will see at home.
I like that the dad and boy work together to fix things. I really wish the mom was doing more than watching the baby and doing dishes, though.

Good for preschool and toddler storytimes.

Squirt just loves this book because, of course, he has a toolbox and daddy has one too.
