Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Christine Cassello
This is a story of a boy who wants to help his father fix things. It is part of the "Helping Hands" series. He brings a ripped teddy bear to his parents and asks if they can fix it. He fixes his own toys by replacing batteries and tightening loose screws with a toy screwdriver. Because he has so many toys and no place for them, his father says he will build a toy box and the boy wants to help. When they go shopping for supplies, he picks out the paints he wants. When his father saws pieces of wood, he uses his toy tool sets to imitate his father. He learns to use a tape measure and match up the pieces of wood to the right sizes. He uses toy drills and hammers while his father is using his tools. When the toy box has been made, he gets to paint it and put all his toys away. The book is a Winner of Practical Pre-School Silver Award 2009. Reviewer: Christine Cassello
