“I Love Tools!” Children’s Book


“I Love Tools!” hardcover children’s book written by Philemon Sturges and illustrated by local artist, Shari Halpern.

From Kirkus Review:

”A family carpentry project affords Sturges the opportunity to show young readers that tools are a groove. The task at hand is to build a bluebird house, and it is carried forth with all the joyous, purposeful cooperation one might witness at an Amish barn-raising. To the accompaniment of Halpern’s crisp, closely observed illustrations, Sturges introduces a number of tools; not just hammer, screwdriver and saw, but a brace and bit, a square and a clamp. . . . . The endpapers are an added bonus, giving brief descriptions of a tool’s uses and providing some fun facts: You turn a screwdriver right to make a screw tight, for instance, and the average pencil can draw a line 35 miles long. Imagine that. (Picture book. 3-6)”
