My 3 year old LOVES this book, and so do I! It's very simple - text and pictures - yet realistic. We love looking at the pipes in the bathroom, the tools, the steps involved in building a home. My son is a Tools Guy, and this is absolutely perfect for the toddler and preschooler.

This is a wonderful yet simplistic book for young children; especially for families building a home. It is realistic and covers the process from beginning to end.
