Whether you work in a warehouse, a truck cab, or an office cubicle, there are some basic lessons you must learn. Rules like:
Now, a children's book series called "Frankie Forklift and Friends" can help teach these lessons to young readers. Written by industry veteran Frank Clark, vice president of forklift dealer The Lilly Co., the books center on a group of characters named Frankie Forklift, Tony Towmotor, Petee Pallet, and Sally Shrinkwrapper.
In the first volume, "Frankie's First Day of Work," the four friends have adventures in a warehouse, learn from their mistakes, and cooperate to achieve their goals. Drawn from a series of bedtime stories that Clark told his four-year-old twins, the story lines reflect his 25 years of experience in the forklift truck and material handling industry.
A second volume to be titled "Frankie Unloads his First Truck" will focus on tackling challenges like being afraid of the dark and trying new things. To order copies of the book or to download free coloring pages for kids, visit frankieforklift.com.
