Tools can cut things apart . . .
. . . or put them back together again.
You can use tools to make almost anything!
From the clamps that hold down the wood for the very first cut through the paintbrush that adds the finishing touches, this book is full of useful tools! Young readers will love watching a busy family saw, hammer, and chisel as they work together to create a new home for their friend the bluebird.

Philemon Sturges was an architect and the author of several books for children, including I Love Trains!, I Love Trucks!, I Love Planes!, I Love School!, and I Love Bugs!
Shari Halpern has illustrated a number of books for children, including Hush, Little Baby and all five previous books in the I Love series. She lives in South Orange, New Jersey, with her husband and three children.From Booklist:
Joining Sturges and Halpern's five previous books celebrating things children adore, this one banks on the allure of a parent's toolbox. In a simple, rhyming text, a child describes the tools used in a family's carpentry project, such as a hammer, which "pounds a nail, and then--Oops! It pulls it out again." Halpern's thickly outlined pictures in clean, flat colors provide close-up images of the tools and the project (which children will eventually recognize as a birdhouse), and subtly indicate that it's the parents, not the children, who perform dangerous tasks with the saw and the drill. Information-rich endpapers extend the text with trivia that will most engage older siblings and adults. Tools don't have quite the same kid cachet as the exciting vehicles featured in previous books in the series, but many young ones, especially those who have observed a parent busy at a workbench, will recognize the magic of watching (and helping) as a handmade creation takes shape.
