Summary

When the new house needs fixing up, it's off to the hardware store to find the tools and materials needed to get the job done--a hammer, a screwdriver, a shiny tape measure, and even a stepladder.

This family outing explores a familiar errand that fascinates plenty of young children: the hardware store. Anne Rockwell's perfectly pitched story and Melissa Iwai's child-friendly illustrations make this book ideal for the preschool audience.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A family's new home is a fixer-upper, but fortunately, Daddy is handy with tools. Unfortunately, he doesn't have all the ones he needs. So our boy narrator, his father, and his little sister head to the hardware store. They fill their cart with a hammer, stepladder, level, saw, tape measure, carpenter's apron, screwdrivers, painting supplies, and, just for fun, a birdhouse kit. Arriving home, they discover that they have forgotten something and drive right back to the store. Written in simple, understandable sentences and with a bit of mild humor, the story records part of everyday family life after moving. Any young child could enjoy this attractive picture book, with its here-and-now text and its sunny artwork, created with acrylics, collage, and digital elements. But the book's most enthusiastic audience will be those preschoolers who study the illustrations to learn about hand tools in all their varied forms (TYPES of HAMMERS: framing, tack, sledge, ball-peen, mallet, and claw). A real find for young tool fans.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2016 Booklist"
