Jesse and Blake, who are identical twins, are feeling anxious as Dad leaves for his job away in the mines. The twins always communicate together using their funny twin language, which only they understand. When they feel insecure or anxious, they hold hands to comfort each other.

Dad decides to film his days at work in the mine to reassure them he is safe while working. Through their dad’s videos, the haul trucks Declan and Dakota come to life in a magical adventure with Ely the excavator. They start work together in an actual day of mining on-site when Wazza the Willy Wily, who is always playing pranks, creates a dust storm and causes all sorts of problems for Ely, Dakota, Declan, and the Mine Controller to solve. Willow the Water Truck saves the day!

This first book in the series “My Mum and Dad are FIFO Parents” will truly help other children in families feel emotionally safe and secure through a mixture of fantasy and reality on a day of their Mum and Dads FIFO life.

Jo has worked in FIFO life for over 10 years bringing up her twins, whilst keeping her marriage and a family together, Jo is still currently working on the mines with many of the Mining mates that are mentioned in the book. Jo is hoping to provide comfort for all families that are now facing this challenge in this diverse mining sector we are now in. This was just an idea she had for many years and craving to put her ideas to paper to tell her story and hopefully for others to find comfort in there’s.

I hope you enjoy this book, the first in the series of “My Mum and Dad are FIFO Parents” which is based on her families own true life situation which brought her children safety and security waiting at home while their Mum and Dad were working away in the mines.

    This is a great idea especially for FIFO kids and knowing that mum and dad are safe on the mines.
    I have three grandkids who would love this book and the concept.
    Great work!

    This is a brilliant book. As a FIFO dad this really helped my son and daughter deal with their emotions while I'm away.
