Tool School

Tool School

by Joan Holub Illustrated by James Dean
Meet five little tools who love to learn, with big ideas and energy to burn!

Get ready young builders to twist and turn with laughter!

Join a hammer, screwdriver, tape measurer, saw, and pair of pliers on their first day of school. Together, they make puzzles and play games, but when it's time to build something it's suddenly every tool for itself. Working alone, each tool soon realizes that to make something great all need to cooperate!

Young children will love the irresistible bold artwork and fun rhyming text as they learn that a little teamwork can make a big difference. Tool School introduces some of the most basic household tools, and cool tips explain how to successfully use them with the help of a grown-up!
