Last night was the launch of The Heavy Purse—a children’s book written by my dear friend and former boss, Shannon Ryan. I’ve had the great fortune to work with her on this project, so it was such a thrill and honor to see her dream come to life.
She had the opportunity to debut her book as part of Read Across America at her children’s school. It was a blast watching both kids and parents respond to her story and the concept of save, spend and share. Her daughters were the inspiration for the story, which makes the book even more special.
The book goes on sale in April, and I know it will be a huge hit. You can learn more about the book and find tips for teaching your children how to handle money at www.theheavypurse.com.
