Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Young
Something for the budding mechanic—a picture book about wrenches. Even non-readers will enjoy this colorful book about a common tool, as the illustrations present wrenches in everyday situations that should be familiar to everyone. The photographs fill most of the page with simple sentences below, making for quick and successful reading comprehension. Nelson provides images of a variety of wrenches, defines the parts of a wrench, how they are used and what they are used for. It's encouraging to see these tools being used by ?normal' people, from a girl helping fix her bicycle, a woman working on a faucet, to a professional mechanic working on a vehicle. Not only is this a terrific resource for physics and reading, it is flexible enough to provide math concepts as well. Notice the shapes of a wrench's jaw, consider the differences and similarities in the wrenches presented in this book. A noted on page 17, use your creativity to think about the many ways wrenches help us that are not included in this book. Following the text are helpful and useful pages describing a wrench, important safety measures that should be observed with any tool, and a glossary and index to find your way back through this work in the engaging "First Step nonfiction: Tools at Work" series.
