Whose Tools Are These? (StArt)

Whose Tools Are These? is written by Sharon Katz Cooper. It is a wonderful story that introduces children to different jobs that use different kinds of tools. It shows the picture of the tool on one page, the child guesses who they think uses the tool, then the child discovers the answer on the next page with a picture of  a person who uses the tool. The book also describes exactly what the worker uses the tools for.

               First they cut their piece of yellow cellophane into smaller pieces.

  This is JD's second day here with us. He was so exciting about using scissors that he didn't want to stop.
                            Then they glued the pieces onto their hats.

          I stapled the hats to fit their heads and then they colored their hammers.

  11. My little guys love tools. We have the Home Depot Big book of tools and one of mine could point out all the tools by name when he was like a year old. Can we say obsessed? This would be a great craft... and very doable. I like that the book combines tools and community helpers!
