In a fun-filled afternoon, the girls dream and giggle as they discover how to use their magical coins to create joy for themselves and others.

Praise for The Heavy Purse

Who would have thought that teaching our child the value of money could be so simple by following the 3 "S's" presented in this book? Perhaps more importantly, this story provides parents a more productive way to talk about money with their child and enables the child to make more conscious decisions.

My daughter loves this book; we have already started 3 funds for spending, sharing and saving. Makes the conversations easier for them to understand.

As a teacher, I believe it opens the door for a discussion with children about a subject that is often hard for them to understand. It gives kids the opportunity to imagine and decide what they would do with their coins. An enriching book to be enjoyed by all!
