NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 13

Let's Go to the Hardware Store by Anne Rockwell. 
March 2016. 32 pages.

From Amazon: "When the new house needs fixing up, it's off to the hardware store to find the tools and materials needed to get the job done―a hammer, a screwdriver, a shiny tape measure, and even a stepladder. This family outing explores a familiar errand that fascinates plenty of young children: the hardware store. Anne Rockwell's perfectly pitched story and Melissa Iwai's child-friendly illustrations make this book ideal for the preschool audience."

My thoughts: This past summer has been "the summer of the basement". With baby coming in February, we needed to finish our basement to make room! Many days we would discover as we were working that we needed more supplies, and so one of us would take a trip to the hardware store (or "cardboard store" as Ellie called it for awhile :) ) and we would take one of the girls with us. This is a really cute book for any family who has done any large or small home repairs!

Recommended Age: 4-7 years (though I would say younger kids would enjoy it too - bright illustrations, lots of things to point out on each page, few words)
