What to Expect: Alphabet, financial terms, colorful illustrations
M is for Money is a fun and interactive way to explore beginning literacy and basic money concepts. Following the standard ABC book setup, each page focuses on a letter of the alphabet and a money concept defined by the word used.
One of the highlights of this book is its versatility. Younger readers will enjoy the ABC portion of the story and how the words combine with colorful illustrations featuring diverse characters and different situations provided by FX And Color Studio. Author Rob Phelan appeals to the older reader by including Stash the Squirrel as a guiding character to help readers think about how money can be used, earned, and saved. Also included in the backmatter of M is for Money is a helpful “How to use this book” guide to help parents, teachers, or caregivers find different and appropriate ways to discuss the financial terms and ideas presented throughout the pages.
Often, we feel it is taboo to discuss money, leaving many people confused and too embarrassed to ask questions when they don’t understand. This book helps normalize conversations about money between children and adults by using age-appropriate words and concepts to help build a foundation for financial literacy.
A fantastic way to introduce basic money concepts to children, M is for Money is highly recommended.
