Introducing Harvey - the busiest beaver in the world! Harvey's workshop has every tool imaginable, but it is a bit messy. So he decides to make himself a toolbox for storing his tools. First, he studies his drawing carefully. Then he proceeds to saw his boards, sand down the wood, bore holes, screw the pieces together and hammer in nails until his toolbox is ready to use. Young readers will love following along with the carpentry process and identifying all of the tools and materials that Harvey uses. At the end of the book, there are instructions and drawings for making a toolbox, just like Harvey!show more
