Let's face it. I could write about many things and you could certainly select thrilling topics from the millions of other titles at Amazon. Why Terrific Tools?
BACKGROUND: When most of us were younger, the most complex financial event occurred when you were fortunate enough to get a bank/savings account. There was a bank branch somewhere in the vicinity of your home, you received a register/ledger, and if you wanted to add or retrieve money from the account, you went to the bank. Then, over the past couple of decades, with the deregulation of much of the financial industry, a proliferation of new technologies and new financial products have been introduced. This has createde an overwhelming abundance of choices for how a kid (or an adult) might manage their money and which tools they can choose. Parents are both confused and a bit out of control as a kids age and engage in on-line commerce through various modern electronic devises. What can we do about it?
I wrote Terrific Tools (1 of 5 fictional, illustrated books in the "Marvels of Money for kids" series), to show kids the progression of tools they can choose as they mature, with strong messaging regarding privacy & internet security. The books were designed so kids want to read them, thus becoming aware of key financial topics through highly visual and engaging fictional stories. This book also supports the emerging financial literacy "learning standards" now being adopted by schools throughout America.
Let's give our kids foundational tools for their success. Thank you for your interest in Terrific Tools and The Marvels Of Money ...for kids series!
