Books and games that teach kids about money

Are you looking for a great gift for the kids in your life? When buying holiday presents, sometimes it’s easy to go overboard without even realizing it. Many families tend to stick with a present buying policy such as “something to wear, something to read, something they want and something they need.” Why not give them something that will have a lasting impact in their life?

Managing money is such an important and needed skill throughout life for all of us. That’s why it’s important to teach children good money managing skills while they’re young, and bonus points for making it fun, interesting, and/or entertaining! Young children learn through play and can benefit from role play, so for example, toys that can be used in playing store/entrepreneurship could be a good option for the very young.

Here are a couple of links to sites with a few good ideas for books and games that go beyond Monopoly and can help children gain a better understanding of money and how to manage it:
