Brace yourselves -- the Property Brothers empire is growing and it's expanding right onto your child's bookshelf. According to People, Drew and Jonathan Scott are venturing into the picture book category with their very own title for HarperCollins. The book will be titled Builder Brothers: Big Plans and it hits stores on October 2.
While Drew and Jonathan don't yet have kids of their own they do remember what it was like to be a kid, with a love of building and making cool stuff that developed at a very young age (not surprising considering the ingenuity that has made Property Brothers such a success). The book will follow the brothers as they set out to design an over-the-top double-decker doghouse for their ow canines, Gracie and Stewie. Naturally chaos and comedy ensues as their plans derail and meddling grownups get in the way. Little Jonathan and Drew must think outside the box to make their vision a reality.
Sounds pretty adorable, right?
The HGTV darlings hope the story will inspire young kids to become makers, dreaming and doing to make their own dreams a reality. In a HarperCollins press release, Drew emphasizes that goal.
“Knowing how much kids love to make and build things, we decided to write a picture book that would help inspire them to dream big and to dare to try,” he says.
Jonathan admits this is just the kind of story he and his twin would have loved to read growing up. And to sweeten the deal, Builder Brothers: Big Plans will even include the plans for a family-friendly DIY project. This way after reading the tale, kids and parents can get their hands dirty and prove that teamwork can result in a really cool product.
While Drew and Jonathan hope to inspire kids with the book, will the children's book inspire them to start families of their own? Not so fast, but certainly not out of the question.
Drew recently wed his longtime love Linda Phan just last month. Jonathan, who was previously married but has since divorced, split from his longtime girlfriend Jacinta Kuznetsov in April.
When I met Jacinta in the fall of 2015, I met somebody kind and courageous and a champion for human/animal rights. We grew to respect each other fiercely and know that will remain unchanged for the rest of our lives. Sometimes life takes you on unexpected paths and those paths aren’t always in the same direction. There’s no drama or negativity; no jealousy or hate. Not even sadness or sorrow. Our memories are filled with joy and we will continue to advocate for each other as friends wherever we go.
So, we may have to wait a wee bit longer before the world gets to meet any Property Babies.
