Using rhythm and rhyme, this collection of stories introduces South Africa’s children to Ruby, a little girl, and her appliance friends - Laaitie the Lightswitch, Hottie the Hot Tap and Freddie the Fridge.  She teaches her little brother the A-Z of electricity and how we should appreciate and pay for it.  Together they learn to. 
  • Realise how valuable electricity is to our lives. 
  • Switch off lights when not needed.
  • Use hot water sparingly by not overfilling the bath and having a shower instead of a bath.
  • Close the fridge door to keep the cold air in.
