This nonfiction ode to building a house from the ground up features six kinds of craftsmen and the 24 tools they use, accurately labeled. The answer to each inquiring refrain is revealed under a gatefold, seven in all, engaging the reader in an informative guessing game. With lyrical (and factual!) text by New York Times bestselling author Toni Buzzeo, and the expertly stylized art of illustrator and designer Jim Datz, this sturdily constructed board book is perfect for curious and playful young readers.
STARRED REVIEW: "This delightful guessing game–style board book introduces 24 tools and the tradespeople who use them . . . Women are well represented among Datz’s carpenters, roofers, electricians, plumbers, and painters (who are drawn in a range of skin tones), providing a subtle “you could do this, too” message that is cemented in a closing scene of two children playing with blocks in the finished house."—Publisher’s Weekly

"Little ones really into construction will appreciate the number and variety of tools featured here, and they will enjoy learning their names as well as which workers put them to use. A nifty, unexpectedly sophisticated exploration of the tools and professions connected to the world of construction."—Kirkus
