I bought this book and several others in the series for my 6 year old daughter. This book on money was not only effective but timely. My daughter broke something recently, on purpose, and I told her she would have to pay to replace it. She got really upset and said that she didn’t want to give up the money she already had from birthday gifts and such. I told her we had a special book to read about money and that we would figure out a solution together. After reading the book she was ready to do tasks and help out to earn the money. She not only understood that money has value and that it takes work to earn it but she’s excited about it!
A great simple way to explain Monday to my six year old!
Bought the book for my nieces, paraphrasing their mother's review:
"Read the money book tonight and it's pretty good. No pictures though, which is a bit odd for a kids book. I like how he incorporates the importance of giving in his teaching.
It's probably really for kids a couple years older than the girls ( he uses the example of earning $20 a month by doing chores, no 5 year old should be making that much) but his principals are sound."
May 17-year-old and I have read this book together several times. It’s a good primer for more discussions about spending and allowances. I wish I’d had the book when she was even younger and would’ve read it to her when she was two or three years old. Thinking about buying gifts for friends with toddlers.
