Does a Woodpecker Use a Hammer?

Harriet Ziefert (author), Emily Bolam (illustrator)

Publisher: Blue Apple Books ISBN: 9781609054281

This title in the Think About series explores and explains that while some animals do indeed use tools, only people have developed implements that make it possible to do things that their bodies cannot. A funny, kid-like question - "Does a woodpecker use a hammer?" - is paired with a silly scenario (a woodpecker in a tool belt), and a few facts about how some animals use parts of their bodies as tools. Animals that might use a stick, or rock, as a tool lead to an exploration of how people create tools to solve problems and accomplish tasks.
