Taylor Wimpey launches new children’s book

Published:  31 May, 2018

Housebuilder Taylor Wimpey has announced the launch of its first children’s book, which aims to educate children about the house building process.

‘How we build your home with Millie Mortar and Handy Andy’ teaches children about how to stay safe around construction sites and housing developments. It is suitable for children around primary school age.

Through a series of illustrations and activities, ‘How we build your home with Millie Mortar and Handy Andy’ follows the Taylor Wimpey characters through all the stages of the house building process. The book will be shared with school children throughout the UK as part of the housebuilder’s mission of educating young people about the work they do. Taylor Wimpey also hopes that the book will inspire the next generation of builders.

Clare Brimble, UK Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey, said: “We are really excited to release our first children’s book and everyone at Taylor Wimpey is incredibly proud of the finished product.

“As well as teaching youngsters about the house building process, ‘How we build your home with Millie Mortar and Handy Andy’ runs through a number of important health and safety messages in a fun and understandable way that we hope children will respond well to. Our work extends far beyond just building houses and we are committed to engaging with local communities to help them to understand the work we do in their area.”
