    One thought on “Drew the Screw”

    1. Will use this if I ever have a child who loves tools or building. Not suitable for storytime (much too short).

    2. Digital artwork highlights the story of Drew the Screw who is simply looking for a way to make his own contribution and do something valuable. As he watches all the other tools get used in some way as the boy with whom they live builds something, Drew becomes increasingly forlorn as the other tools give him a hard time and wonder what his contribution will be. Finally, as the boy puts finishing touches on his tree house, Drew takes his place front and center. Although I liked how the functions o [...]

    3. Drew the screw lives in a garage with other tools. He narrates the use of each tool as it is used by a boy to build something. “The hammer hits.” “The drill makes holes.” Even the pencil has a job. But what does the screw do? Finally, the project is revealed to be a treehouse and Drew holds the home sweet home sign in place. Perfect for beginning readers, the text is simple with the measure being the only real challenge. The brightly colored cartoonish illustrations put the text into con [...]

    4. Every tool on the bench has a purpose. The pencil draws lines, the tape measures, the clamp holds things. But what is Drew's purpose in life? Bright digital illustrations show a boy working on a project, step-by-step. What is he making? How will Drew be used? It turns out that he is important in the finishing touch on the (spoiler alert!) birdhouse. This is a great book for kids who love tools. Teachers could use it for prediction, and for sequence lessons. The underlying message that everyone i [...]

    5. MY THOUGHTS:I adore this series of book because the pictures and simple sentences allow for the early reader become engaged in the book without feeling overwhelmed. It is also that the book is the size it is, as many early books are very small and don't have the feel of a "real book". In DREW THE SCREW. the reader gets to read about what the tools do and see what important jobs they have. Told with simple works and sentences the reader will be taken away by the pictures that perfectly capture th [...]

    6. The boy comes out to the garage and he begins to build something. Drew the Screw watches as the boy used the pencil, the hammer, and the saw and is a little frustrated by the fact that he does not know his purpose. By the story's end the perfect solution comes when the boy selects Drew to hold the sign above his tree house that says "Home, Sweet Home!" Drew finally finds his identity in his purpose.

    7. All of the other tools know what their uses are, but Drew doesn't know his! Each tool demonstrates their skill until the end when Drew discovers his own. Adorably cute illustration with a fun introduction to tools and their uses.
