    1. Meh. This didn't really do much for me, but I could see it really appealing to some kids and a good teaching tool. The format is fun--first, you see a collection of tools used in a particular occupation so you can guess who uses them, then you turn the page and see. For example, knife, measuring cup, frying pan = COOK; saw, wood, nails = CARPENTER.

    2. This was a fun, random find from visiting the library. It has really simple but well thought out art. Each set of pages presents a collection of tools and then names an occupation that uses those tools. Though the art is stylized, all of the tools are represented very clearly and in good detail. This is a great book to combine with introducing kids to these tools and jobs in real life.

    3. An amazingly simple format makes this a wonderful tool for preschool and kindergarten classrooms. One spread features the tools of a particular trade (hammer, clamp, try square, nails, saw, chisel) and the next spread shows someone engaged in the matching occupation (carpenter). Included are tailor, mechanic, doctor, electrician, gardener, chef, barber, painter, and interestingly, watchmaker. The computer-generated illustrations are a perfect match for the simplicity of the book. Early childhood [...]

    4. Written and illustrated by Taro Miura, this book is nothing short of guessing game. A fun and informative read that introduces children to real life tools used in several occupational trades like doctor, tailor, barber, gardener. The layout of the pages start with illustrations and names of tools used in a particular occupation. Then it is up to the reader to guess which occupation these are used for. After the guesses have been made, the next page reveals the correct occupation.

    5. My five-year-old son checked this book out from the library this week. He said he was getting it for his daddy. This is a remarkably beautiful book about tools. There is no story, so don't look for one, but the layout of the artwork is spectacular and my son had fun guessing who would use the tools on the prior two-page spread.

    6. Originally published in Italy by Japanese illustrator Taro Miura, the books' design is immensely attractive to adults and children alike. My preschool students loved the "Guess who?" format, and I like the important connection the book made between tools and workers' effort to do specific jobs. LOVE this book.

    7. on one page a handful of similar tools grace each page with their name written below. Turn the page and their is a picture of a worker who uses the tools on the previous page. This book, with simple, bold images, teaches children to identify the connection between a stethoscope and a doctor, a hammer and a carpenter, scissors and barbers.

    8. the kids loved this book. i had to renew it multiple times because they read it every day. the illustrations are simple but chic. very cool book.

    9. Shows a picture of sets of tools used in a specific trade. The next page shows someone working with those tools.

    10. The words and illustrations are very simple, so good for toddlers. Preschoolers will be able to use their deducting skills to figure out who uses which tools.

    11. Preschooler: I like the tools in the book. Mother: I like the concept, just maybe this book is more for older children even though the library has it in the preschool section.

    12. Perfect little book on tools for toddler boys. Fun for learning vocabulary and inviting discussion about different sorts of trades: carpentry, gardening, painting, watch making, etc

    13. Great exploration of professions from the point of view of "Who uses these?"Excellent for anyone who loves visiting the Home Depot with their parents.

    14. A great guessing game book. Different kinds of tools are showcased and turning the page reveals the profession. I liked the variety in the tools.
