Switched On, Flushed Down, Tossed Out

by Trudee Romanek,
Illustrated by Stephen MacEachern

It's never too early for kids to learn about the workings of their homes. (You can't imagine the number of people who buy their first home and don't realize they have a central water shutoff or what an electrical breaker box is!) This beautifully illustrated book takes children on a journey through a home or apartment's different systems and takes some of the mystery out of common services and utilities such as electricity, water, garbage collection and more.

Designed for ages 8-10, it's the kind of book that will probably stimulate more questions than it answers, which is a good thing! It gives you the parent the opportunity to fill in the gaps, and hopefully jump start your child's imagination and fascination with their home!
