After months of anticipation (well, at least on my part!), The Heavy Purse is now on sale!! This colorful children’s picture book is a labor of love, and I’m so excited to share it with you.
Inspired by real events, my friend, Shannon Ryan, decided to take her life-long passion for financial literacy and write a children’s picture book. Beautifully illustrated by Aaron Kizer, The Heavy Purse tells the story of two little girls who discover how to use their magical coins to create joy for themselves and others in a fun-filled afternoon.
While the book may seemed geared to girls only (hey, it’s called The Heavy Purse after all), the story itself is gender neutral. Shannon’s read the story to lots of boys and girls with terrific feedback. The kids love the story and particularly enjoy figuring out how they are going to save, spend and share their money like Lauren and Taylor do in the story.
You can visit www.theheavypurse.com for some additional tips on Shannon’s blog and handouts. Or if you’re ready to buy the book right now (and you are—right?) then you can head on over to Amazon and buy the book. Thank you in advance.
