A Word From The Author

The idea for a children’s book fostering financial literacy stemmed from my own experience with the fast pace of change in the way we use money today, and recognition of gaps that exist in fundamental education for basic money management and business concepts.

I want the next generation to be better equipped and to embrace financial literacy as a life skill, accessible to all. I hope that my books open a door to financial understanding for young learners and their families.
