Teaching children the importance of earning and saving money is usually taught during the teenage years. This beautifully illustrated book teaches children that hard work truly pays off. I love that the parents explained to their son how money works, and what to do with the money you earn. Parents will find this book to be extremely helpful in opening a dialogue with their young child about money. I recommend this book to any parent.
