Did you make any New Year’s resolutions this year? According to USA.gov, two of the most popular New Year’s resolutions are to save money and to manage debt. Well, it just so happens we have a series that can help with both. Even better, it can help get young people off on the right financial foot so that debt may never become an issue for them.
This series, part of our well-respected Lightning Bolt Books brand, is called Exploring Economics (covers pictured below). It’s accessible and kid-friendly, and yet I think every single one of us who worked on these books picked up at least a few pointers when it comes to money management and our financial system. Booklist has praised this series, even giving it a spot on its list of Top Ten Financial Series in 2014 (along with Money Basics, a fabulous series published by Lerner’s Millbrook Press imprint).
If you’re looking to introduce financial topics to K–2 readers, I hope you’ll check this series out. And maybe you’ll even be inspired to pick up the books yourself! I know I felt more in the know about money after giving them a read!
