Just as social skills, etiquette, reading and writing are important, so is financial literacy. Your child's mind will be open to so much pertaining to money in this easy to read, beautifully illustrated book, The Illustrated Alphabet of Money by Eve Heidi Bine-Stock. This book has everything to get your child started in learning about finances from A to Z. By reading this book, your child will learn about interest (I) when borrowing, being a wise shopping (S) consumer, and the importance of budgeting (B). Eve has used each letter of the alphabet to help your child along their financial journey. This book is a must-have for any child and maybe your child can teach a few tricks to their teenage siblings because no one is ever too old to learn about financial literacy.

I enjoyed this book because Eve took it a step further in educating kids on being frugal (F), kind (K) and a need (N) versus a want which may be insignificant but goes a long way in life. Even though this is a children's book, it can help to prepare your child as they grow and prepare them for the future, from understanding that the house (H) they live in is not free, the importance of setting goals (G) for their lives including financial ones, and shifting their minds to thinking about opening a bank account now instead of later. Money can rule the world but if you help your child make the right decisions about their financial future today, it will not rule them. Get your copy today!
