Written on: November 15, 2022 by ICM

Ryan Kiscaden, an HVACR and plumbing marketing executive, has published his first children’s book, The Water Came To A Stop, in the new NEXT UP TRADES Series. It is an illustrated children’s book series about a child’s birthday party that is nearly ruined due to a lack of household water, however Gomer Gopher and Flo Fish from NEXT UP TRADES come to the rescue.

The series is designed to teach children that the skilled trades are noble, necessary and appreciated when completed, Kiscaden said. The books are geared to ages 4–8. The series also focuses on celebrating problem-solving and helping others; up to 2% of post-profit proceeds will be donated to SkillsUSA.

The Water Came To A Stop is available in paperback and eBook versions at or
