Indie Pick I am Money and Blue Monday offer opportunities for parents and children to discuss financial literacy

By: PRLog

"Kid translator" Julia Cook and Financial Guru Garrett Gunderson offer new book to aid these discussions

OMAHA, Neb. - Jan. 3, 2024 - PRLog -- Just released, I am Money is an Indie Pick for January/February 2024, and with Blue Monday coming up, it's a great tool for kids and parents to learn alongside each other the importance of financial literacy. It's also a time to make new year's money management resolutions together.

Parenting expert and children's author Julia Cook has partnered with New York Times & Wall Street Journal bestselling financial author Garrett Gunderson on the book which is already receiving incredible reviews. Here's what booksellers are saying:

"Wow! I don't think I have ever read a book on money for kids that actually states that money won't make you happier and that using credit cards can be deceptive. This is an especially good look at what money is and can do, and what the different forms of it (cash, credit cards, etc.) do and how they work. Thank you for publishing this one!" – Rene Kirkpatrick, University Book Store

"I like this! A book for kiddos, about money and its uses, with an underlying message of 'Invest in Yourself'. Definitely going on a shelf here!" – Becky Milner, Vintage Books

Children and parents will enjoy learning prudent and valuable money advice through the coupling of penny-wise prose and engaging illustrations by Josh Cleland.

Some of these thrifty and smart tips include:

  • You were born with gifts. Invest in yourself!
  • Learn new things. Find out what you do best, and work hard to discover what you love to do. "YOU" are your GREATEST INVESTMENT!
  • Pay yourself first! For every dollar you get, put 15 cents away in a special place. Always remember to take care of yourself so you can give your best to others.
  • Don't spend money that you do not have.
Julia and Garrett have more advice to share and are available for interviews.  A digital trailer can also be found here.

The I am Money book launch currently includes evolving stops in Dallas, Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Chapel Hill, Bluffton (SC), Indiana (South Bend, Center Grove and Indianapolis) and California (Roseville and Folsom).

With more than 90 titles and three million books in nine languages sold, Julia Cook's successful strategy is "Read a Book, Teach a Child a Life Skill."  Her books have won multiple accolades and have been featured in national and regional press outlets. For more information, go here.

Garrett Gunderson is a New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling author whose mission is to teach people financial independence by determining one's financial persona and unlocking simple shifts. More info can be found here.
