learning about money

PRETTY PENNY CLEANS UP by Devon Kinch (Random House 2012) is a terrific book about money (hard to tell from the cover I know). Penny's best friend Emma wants to go to a concert but has no money. So, she and Penny set up a business taking care of pets. Before they open, though, Penny explains to Emma that there are three things that need to be done with money earned. One is to SAVE money. The second is to SHARE money with a chariry. Then, it is fine to SPEND money. This lesson is conveyed simply but forcefully. It is never too soon to get the message across, though. <42>
