It's the book with sliding doors that make noise! In Kim's room there is a wooden bar that needs to be shortened. The saw is a sliding element that moves back and forth, generating a sawing noise - and then the bar is shorter! Mom brushes a paintbrush over the ceiling, workers drill a hole in the kitchen wall, Paul the plumber tightens a screw with a wrench, and the carpenter hammers nails into the wall.

Charming rhymes accompany all the projects going on in the household and encourage children to help, too.
