Turning Pages, Building Futures: Home Builders Association of Michigan’s 700,000-Copy Legacy with Jenkins Group

Michigan Home Builders Association Books

Since its inception, the Home Builders Association of Michigan (HBAM) has been committed to not only constructing homes but also nurturing a sense of community and education. Central to their mission is the belief that every child deserves to understand the process of transforming a house into a home. With this vision in mind, HBAM has collaborated with Jenkins Group, a trusted publishing partner, to bring educational resources to thousands of young minds across the state.

For more than 5 years, the HBAM has relied on Jenkins Group to produce an array of educational books, totaling over 700,000 copies. From beloved classics like “Billy the Builder Bear Builds a House” to empowering reads such as “Build Your Future” and “Let’s Build Something Great!“, each publication has served as a beacon of knowledge and inspiration for youth and educators alike.

In their latest collaboration, HBAM once again turned to Jenkins Group to produce “Catie Leads the Crew.” This new addition to their educational lineup aims to captivate the imaginations of first and second graders, offering a unique perspective on the journey from construction site to cozy home. With over 52,000 copies distributed to schools throughout Michigan, “Catie Leads the Crew” is poised to make a lasting impact on young readers, fostering an appreciation for the craftsmanship and dedication that go into every home.

At its core, “Catie Leads the Crew” is more than just a children’s book—it’s a testament to the power of education and storytelling. By engaging young minds with relatable characters and captivating narratives, HBAM and Jenkins Group are igniting a passion for learning and creativity that will shape the future of Michigan’s communities.

Through their longstanding partnership, HBAM and Jenkins Group have demonstrated a shared commitment to excellence and innovation in education. By leveraging the expertise of Jenkins Group in publishing and distribution, HBAM has been able to amplify its message and reach a broader audience than ever before.
