Featured Book: ‘Money Doesn’t Grow on Trees: Teaching Your Kids the Value of a Buck’ by Ellie Kay

It’s Never Too Early or Too Late to Learn

In today’s times, we know what it’s like to have to be wise in your spending, and author Ellie Kay would like to help you teach your children how to manage their money now so that they grow into responsible adults.

It’s never too late to learn as Kay, also known as America’s Family Financial Expert®, emphasizes, so even if you’re an adult who needs a few pointers yourself, you can use the advice in this book to put you on the right track.
