Introducing 4-to-10-year-olds to important money concepts

The Person County Public Library is hosting a Money as You Grow Book Club Parent Workshop to help your child discover key money concepts through reading, play, and quiet one-on-one talks with you. Developed by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the book club is a family activity that uses age-appropriate books each with its own free reading guide to help you explore the books with your child.

Each parent guide below will help you explore key money concepts and skills with your child by:

  • Helping you explain the key ideas in the books.
  • Suggesting things to think about before reading the books with your child.
  • Providing questions to talk about with your child.
  • Suggesting activities that help your child put ideas and lessons into action.
