Description

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.

Review quote

"A nifty, unexpectedly sophisticated exploration of the tools and professions connected to the world of construction."--Kirkus Reviews "The precise language paired with smiling, cartoon renderings of each tool make this an accessible and fun approach to learning."--Booklist STARRED REVIEW
"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."--Publishers Weekly
