July 23 Money Monsters

Okeoma Moronu Schreiner brings us a picture book adventure featuring Kai, a young boy with a lively imagination and a tendency to worry over everything. The Missing Money: Money Monsters is debuting this month.  It is the first of a trilogy geared to introduce young children to the world of personal finance in a way to which they can relate.

Going to the bank for the first time with his dad, Kai is excited about depositing his money.  However, before he can do that, a monster gobbles up every bit of it! His dad doesn’t even notice what happened.  Kai devises a detailed plan to recover his money and then lets his parents know about the money-eating monster.  

His mom explains about the mysterious ATM monster and how his money is completely secure.   His dad gives him a magic ATM card so he can check on his money to make sure it stays safe.  That knowledge helps Kai have a little less to worry about in his world.

Attorney, former elementary school teacher, wife, mom, and author, Okeoma Moronu Schreiner (her Instagram: @finkidlit) has given parents a good tool to start helping their children understand how finances work in an age-appropriate manner.  She even includes a page of discussion points to give children a deeper understanding of the concepts presented in this cute story.

Illustrator Sandhya Prabhat, who is from India, is also an animator.  Her unique style of artwork adds to the charm of this book.  If you have primary-children you'll want to include this book in your home library.  It would make a nice gift for your children's teachers too.  You can order your copy here.
