Friday Finds: Union Bank Books Time with Kids
Teaching your kids about money can be tricky. Of course you want them to save, but how can you make it appealing for, say, a kindergartner or even an elementary schooler, who wants something new seemingly every five minutes?
What a Bank Can Do, by children's book authors John and Diane Tuzee, shows kids the benefits of saving and how easy it can be. Through our pint-sized savers Luke and Linda, kids can read about what actually happens to their money once they put it in the bank.
Besides showing that the money is then lent out to other people, What a Bank Can Do illustrates just how banking can help the community—by helping people buy homes, cars and start new businesses.
It's amazing to be able to show CC how it's all connected.
