At last! A book about money which kids love to read. What most adults wish they had learned when they were younger. Five captivating stories place Chelsea and Jack in life situations which kids can relate to. Each story poses a challenge or a goal, a series of experiences, with a clear conclusion and lessons learned.
This book supports the emerging national and state scholastic learning standards for financial literacy and "reasoning skills" being introduced in schools across the country.
The engaging fictional but realistic financial literacy stories include essential financial words, which are highlighted throughout the stories and then defined in a glossary along with summary concepts at the end of each story. 3rd-6th grade level readers will find each story's 2,500 word stories and numerical examples great for reading, mathematics, social sciences and financial literacy! Younger (K-2) readers may skim the concepts in a picture book manner, as there are incredible illustrations on each page.
Key concepts woven throughout the stories include Budgeting, Spending, Saving, Giving, Philanthropy, Choices, Collaboration, Community, Compassion, Earning, Empathy, Creativity, Earning, Effort, Family, Media influence, Needs vs. Wants, Patience, Peer-pressure, Planning, Price/value, Privacy, Profit, Security, Risk, and getting a Job. This single book combines 5 standalone color books (Earning Excitement, Spending Success, Debt Dangers, Giving Greatness, and Terrific Tools) into a single B&W book at a substantially reduced price from the five individual books.

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 Marvels Of Money ... for kids?
America is at an interesting point in its history, as changing demographics and global competition have increased the importance of financial literacy. Adults with financial smarts are simply in a better position to make good decisions about money and avoid many of the challenges otherwise facing families. My books are not about "wealth", but rather financial aptitude and disciplines, which ultimately promises greater independence for our kids. Isn't that what we want?
I combined the five stories commonly purchased as five separate books into this single volume in order to provide an option for families and teachers. Each of my stories were designed so kids want to read them, thus becoming aware of key financial topics through highly visual and engaging fictional stories. Earning Excitement, Spending Success, Debt Dangers, Giving Greatness and Terrific Tools are the five stories contained herein, with an identical 32 page per story format, original artwork on each page, with key new words highlighted and defined in a glossary at the back of each story.
Let's give our kids foundational tools for their success. Thank you for your interest in the "Marvels Of Money ...for kids" series!
