Just Shopping with Mom - Kids & Money Series

by Katie Cullum

You can find this book at the Searcy LIbrary or the Rose Bud Library. It's available for purchase online.  This book is written for children ages 4 and up.  

The goal of the books in this series (which includes the Trouble with Money and the Ox-Cart Man, along with a little more about the series in Teaching Money Lessons with Books ) is to help parents talk to their children about money.  This story focuses on two financial concepts - prioritizing and positive interactions.  

Synopsis: Mom braves the store with three youngsters.  One has trouble accepting "no" for an answer.  

Download this Parent Guide to get discussion questions, activities to reinforce, and more information on the financial concepts.  

If you don't have the book, you can watch the video below WITH your kids!  Then discuss the ideas from the Parent Guide.
