This is a story about a little boy that ventured into his basement and found a toolbox. He picks up each tool and says what it is and then tells the reader what the use of each tool is. He then goes outside of the basic toolbox and the reader gets to learn about different kinds of tools that you may find around the house. There are things like an oil can and a pair of gloves, and many other things that people use to do work on things.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802789307, Hardcover)

Look inside this well-loved toolbox—there is so much to discover! It holds strong wrenches that turn, pliers that pinch, and sandpaper that smoothes. There are nails, screws, and a hammer. A toolbox is a treasure trove for curious young builders.

When they’re not running to explore their own tool collections, children will be glued to this book, exploring the shapes, names, and useful jobs of common hand tools. Anne and Harlow Rockwell’s preschool classic still shines with a well-crafted simplicity that speaks to the desire young children feel to make something uniquely their own.
