Tools by Taro Miura is a book I discovered while looking for books with labels. The book has a two page spread with a collection of tools, each with a label. The two pages that follow identify the profession that would use these tools with an illustration of a person using them. Some professions are easy to figure out while others might be challenging for my students. I think they will enjoy trying to figure out who might use each collection of tools. Here's one example from the text - open-end wrench, adjustable wrench, slotted screwdriver, nut, washer, bolt, and pliers...mechanic. What I love about this page is the mechanic is working on a moped, scooter and not a car or a truck. A few other interesting professions are tailor, electrician, watch maker, and barber. The illustrations are simple and done in monochromatic earth tone colors which I find very pleasing. I think this book is a must have for any primary room.
Mandy, I always love reading your book recommendations! I'm going to recommend this book to my friend who has a kindergartner who loves tools and loves to think! Thanks!ReplyDelete
