My four-year-old, a tool fanatic, loved this book. Simple illustrations and words label several tools from a boy's father's toolbox and clearly describe their basic uses. My son "reads" it over and over again.

My 2 year old simply adores this book! He is obsessed with all things related to building and this book covers it! It's a fairly basic board book, but has pictures of all of the tools that he likes, so he's able to look at the pictures and memorize what each thing is. Very cute for a tool-obsessed toddler!

We gave this book and the Green Toys Tool Set to my daughter and she LOVED it. It is obviously dated (who has a plane or a wooden folding tape measure any more?) but she wants to read it over and over and she names the tools. We got her a cheap tape measure and small clamp to put in the box so she has more of the tools, but she is happy to just read the book over and over.

This was my son's favorite book when he was about 1 1/2 and up! We read it ALL the time! The only downside was that when he was 2, he used tools to remove the trap from under the sink, but just like in the book, he put a bucket under it so water didn't go everywhere. He's twenty now, and just bought his first set of tools. I told him "The Toolbox!" and he hugged me and said "Yes, Mom, just like in "The Toolbox!" He still remembered his favorite book! I'm buying this for him to give to his kids someday! :)

Fun and entertaining for a short while for my 2 year old grandson.
If he can get to his grand dads real tools, now that's entertainment.
The box is helpful for storage. In fact, I am using for a craft box now.

I ordered this book for my 2 1/2 year old son for Christmas and he really loves it. He is obsessed with tools and this book shows various tools with simple language but explains the function of the tools. The only downside is that it is a little outdated...for example, the picture of drill is a manual drill that no one uses any longer.

i bought this book to go along with a little tool kit I bought for my niece's third birthday. It is great to read while playing with the tool kit. VERY CUTE!

I bought this in conjunction with an age-appropriate tool box for my 18-month old and it is a sweet book. The illustrations are wonderful.

I like the simple format which is appropriate for my 2 year-old tool-obsessed grandson.
Unfortunately, quite a few of the tools are outdated -- wooden tool caddy, rotary hand drill, hand plane, to name a few.
I no longer use any of these and therefore cannot show the real thing to my grandson.
On the other hand, there are no power tools, not even an electric or battery drill.
I would have returned it, except that the return shipping is close to the cost of the book.

I remembered this book from when I was a child. Love that it's still available. Very simple sentences and pictures on each page. If I had one complaint, it would be that it's a boy child and it's specifically the father's toolbox--why can't it be mom's tools, or the family's tools? Still a gem.
