Teaching our Children about money is very important for several reasons. In fact, educating your kids about the value of money, the different currencies, budgeting and saving is just the start. With Financial Literacy Month around the corner, now is a great time to start educating your children about Money.
It may seem overwhelming to know that you should be teaching your Children these things, in fact, it may leave you asking: “Where do I start?” Well, I have an answer for you! Start with M is for Money.
What is M is for Money?
M is for Money is the first 100% Canadian Kid’s book series that focuses on financial literacy. This great new 9 book series that provides Teachers and Parents with the ability to discuss money in an exciting and innovative way.
This wonderfully informational book series follows the adventures of two twins named Tessa and Benji. The twins are learning about money in fun and creative manner that your children will love following! These books are made for kids aged 5-9.
What We Thought about M is for Money
My family has read the first 3 books in the M is for Money series, and we absolutely love them! Little Man, who is 7, has spent lots of time reading these books independently too. He likes them so much he has read them more than once each!
M is for Money is very in depth in a way that Little man could easily understand. He loves following Tessa and Benji on their learning adventures. With books 1-3 Little man has successfully learned about what money is, how to earn money, and how and why to open a bank account. We are so impressed with these books and can’t wait to read the next 6!
