"The Missing Money" is a New 3-Book Series Aimed at Teaching Children All About Money Including Basic Financial Terms - Review and #Giveaway #BooksForKids #TheMissingMoney #MoneyMonsters

Disclosure: I was sent a review copy from the publishing in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Now that my girls are getting older and understand more, I am finding that we are having more meaningful conversations, including ones about financial literacy.  They receive an allowance each week, and have to save some, donate some, and can spend some.   We introduced this a couple years ago, and back then they were both upset that they couldn't spend all the money that was given to them.  But, as they have gotten older, they are realizing that it isn't all about spending money as soon as they get it.  And, they even look forward to donating some of their money to causes like pet shelters and cancer groups, as a way to help others. 

So, knowing that they were old enough to understand about money, I wanted to share this new picture book with them, as it is never too early to get smart about money.  This year, we plan to have the girls set up savings accounts at a nearby bank, and they will have their own ATM card to deposit and take out money.  I know they will have many questions about an ATM, and what banks will do with their money, so this book is a great intro to financial literacy.

"The Missing Money: Money Monsters" is part of a new series by attorney and author Okeoma Moronu Schreiner.  The series was created because the author wanted to share a book about financial literacy that was not only educational, but fun at the same time.  The book is written in an age-appropriate way that even young children can understand and enjoy.

Both of my girls enjoyed this book, and are more financially savvy.  They are moving beyond just adding their change to their piggy banks, and looking forward to setting financial goals to save for, and other ways to put their hard earned money to good use.  

Your kids will love the bright and colorful illustrations that fill the pages of this book.  My girls found themselves lingering on each page to take in all the detailing of the illustrations done by Sandhya Prahbat.  If you are looking for a great kid-friendly book about money management, then I highly recommend this book.  I will definitely be keeping an eye out for further installments in this series, and I hope you will, too, after you share this new release with your kids.

More about this book:

"The Missing Money is the first picture book in a new three-book series aimed at inspiring young children to learn basic financial terms in a fun and age-appropriate way. The book follows Kai, a young boy on his way to the bank to deposit his newly earned money. While at the bank, a big scary ATM machine eats all of his money! Kai struggles to understand where his money went and creates an elaborate plan to get it back. 

Just before attempting to break his money out, his parents sit him down to explain this confusing turn of events and help put his mind at ease. He discovers new findings, such as how money goes from dollar bills to numbers on a banking app. Finances can be a difficult task to navigate, even as an adult, so these books are meant to aid young children through the puzzling world of money. 

The series, all three of which are set to publish within the year, emphasizes the idea that you are never too young to learn about your fun and funny finances."
