Read on to learn what kinds of books they are selling and what kind of discount you get if you are a member.
If you want to educate your children about working in the roofing industry, “Is This a Roof” by Karen Cates, Ph.D., is perfect. The book, available in English and Spanish, is about two turtle siblings, Tucker and Talia. Tucker works in the roofing industry and shows his little sister Talia how fun his work is.
The coloring book version of “Is This a Roof” is great for kids who love to color. Children can learn about roofing in an engaging way with this fun gift.
Safety is not only a good thing to teach kids in general, but it’s especially important to teach kids who want to get into roofing. “Be Safe, Rafe!” by Karen Cates, Ph.D., tells the story, offered in English and Spanish, of Rafe the fox who visits his grandfather, the owner of Foxx Roofing. Grandpa Foxx teaches Rafe why safety matters and even provides him with safety gear.
The nonmember price for each book is $12 and the member price is $6.
