Here is a picture book perfectly suited to tool-crazy youngsters. Marilyn Singer's short, snappy verses invite young readers to participate in the building of a clubhouse, from drawing a plan to brushing paint on the walls. In addition to the poem, there are facts on each spread about each tool and how to use it. Many of the tools will be familiar to children, such as the hammer and the wrench, but this book also introduces some less familiar tools, such as the plane, square and level. This is a unique and fun-filled picture book that will engage even the youngest child who dreams about having a space of their own.

In this upbeat picture book, a dozen kids get together to build a neighborhood clubhouse. In the main text, rhyming couplets identify the children and the tools used while following the progress of the project. Running in parallel, a prose text explains the uses and varieties of the many tools mentioned. Parents bring their many hand tools, power tools, and positive attitudes to the project, showing their children how to use the tools safely. Construction proceeds smoothly without so much as a banged thumb or a bent nail. Painted in watercolors, the nicely laid out illustrations show many things at once: the tools, the individual workers, and the progress being made. This enjoyable picture book not only identifies types of wrenches, screws, bits, and so on, but also illustrates the satisfaction of using tools and the pleasure shared by a diverse group of neighbors working toward a common goal.
