Money as You Grow Bookshelf helps parents turn storytime into a time for building money skills that can last a lifetime.
As families read together, they can use play and fun activities to help young children build money habits. And parents can use these activities to talk with children about money and household decisions.
The discussions and activities in Money as You Grow Bookshelf are designed to:
- Create interest in money skills and their use
- Offer opportunities for parents and children to have conversations about using money
- Provide access to information and concepts intended to build financial well-being
