When was the last time you sat down and read your child a book? Children love being read to and entering into a whole new world. They love stories of pirates, princesses, animals, farms, and guess what- plumbers. I know, most people don’t think that plumbing would be a topic in children’s books, but it is. Here are a few books that can expose your children to the wonderful world of plumbing:
You might not know this but the classic children’s author Dr. Seuss wrote about plumbers. The book Happy Birthday To You is a classic Dr. Seuss book and a must-read for anyone’s birthday. Here is an excerpt from this fun and imaginative book.
Just look at those Zummers! They’re sort of like Plumbers. They come along humming, with heads in their plumbing and that makes the music that Zummers call zumming!
And all of this beautiful zumming and humming and plumbing and strumming and drumming and coming…
All of it, all of it,
All is for you!
