LET'S GO TO THE HARDWARE STORE
Need a handyman? Not Flora’s family. When the family moves into a new house there are endless small projects that need fixing. So Flora, her brother and their father visit the new town’s hardware store to purchase all the necessary tools to repair the new house. The family dives right in and selects a hammer, ladder, tape measure, screwdriver and other essentials.
Let’s Go to the Hardware Store by Anne Rockwell is the perfect book for young children to read before exploring their town’s hardware store. Children who are captivated with building projects will find this book as the perfect reference source. Rockwell describes their journey in simply sentences and provides the names of the tools at the bottom of the page which introduces a sophisticated vocabulary. Melissa Iwai, the illustrator, uses pastel colors and fine details for the images.
