Harvey and his best friend Chip are beavers and love to keep busy! In this series of books they learn carpentry, baking, gardening and decorating. They use all the proper equipment and at the end of the book it tells you what you need to know if you would like to do the same thing. Parents be prepared for your children to suddenly want to know if you have an "eggbeater drill" or how to make breadcrumbs to line a cake tin!
As a family who loves involving everyone in the household chores, tending to the vegetable patch and doing the DIY this is a perfect set of books to share with our children. If you aren't afraid of sharing your kitchen/workshop with your kids then get these books! The pictures are adorable and large enough to capture a toddler's attention, the writing does not "talk down" to an older child and so they can be shared with a number of children of different ages.
