    Great book for teaching your kids about the value of money

    We have a 5 year old girl who loves being read to every night at bedtime. I got this book as a way to help her understand the value of money and saving. She loves the story and she is now counting her own money at night with absolute glee. This is a wonderful story and a great way to teach your child how to earn money to pay for important events in their lives. Highly Recommended!

    Highly Recommended

    I got the book for my daughter who's almost 7 years old and we love it! The book teaches kids to be creative and how to handle money responsively. I highly recommend it to parents that have elementary school aged kids.

    "Pretty Penny": Happiness from Smarts & Work. No Magic Wands Here!

    Next time you read aloud to your child, read "Pretty Penny". Your child will hear an engaging story, see some adorable illustrations and learn some very practical lessons about life. Best of all, these life lessons are presented with humor in a fun and light-hearted story.

    Penny is a wonderful role model for young girls (and young boys, too, actually)! Penny sets a goal, decides to work for what she needs and creates a plan to achieve her goal. In the process, she saves her money and plans her spending. What's more, her goal isn't to acquire something for herself; her goal is to give something to a loved one. Advertisers brainwash children to push parents into buying them things. "Pretty Penny" presents a refreshingly practical and unselfish message to children: work for what you need, plan how to use your money and give to others.

    "Pretty Penny" is the perfect book for story time at nursery school or kindergarten. Moms out there, I hope you show "Pretty Penny" to your child's school teacher, or have your child bring "Pretty Penny" in for show and tell.

    Introduce your kids to "Pretty Penny"! The kids will love the story, enjoy the pictures, and start to learn about a healthy way of living and thinking.

    Pretty Penny Rocks

    Without being preachy, Pretty Penny speaks to little girls about funding their ambitions, recycling good stuff, attaching value and having a good time while doing it. Pretty Penny is creative and spunky, Her pet pig? not so much but seems to be a good earring salespig. The illustrations are super, and the story itself bounces along with all the energy of a young girl. My granddaughter loves the book and so do I!

    Pretty Penny is Pretty Pleasing!

    What a great book for little girls to learn about money! I happened upon it at the Barnes and Noble store in the new book section and was quite taken with the cover of the book. When I looked inside I found the story and the illustrations enchanting. Penny is hip, savvy, and has a head on her shoulders. She already wrote her autobiography and put on a doggie fashion show. She wants to throw her grandma Bunny a surprise birthday party and the book illustrates how she goes about earning the money to do it. Loved it! Bought several copies for my nieces and recommended it to my friends with kids.
