Penny Saved: Taking Your Work Skills Home
Neale Godfrey's Money Doesn't Grow on Trees flew to the top of the bestseller list by helping parents teach their kids the value and uses of money. In her latest national bestseller, A Penny Saved, Godfrey builds on those basic concepts -- for preschoolers through teenagers -- and gives parents a concrete structure to teach values and essential life skills.
Parents want their children to grow up with healthy self-esteem, sound judgment, self-discipline, and the ability to take care of themselves in an uncertain world. They want their children to learn the positive lessons of honesty, responsibility, cooperation, and ethical behavior. By teaching children to understand what money is, how to use it, and what it can -- and can't -- do, parents prepare their children for life in the real world.
Worksheets, quizzes, teaching games, and age-appropriate exercises give kids hands-on opportunities to hone their practical skills.
