Editorial Reviews

Amazon - Barbara Allisen
Emily & Jacob spend, save, give & earn money. They divide their money into 3 jars: spending, saving, and giving. Karima LaJoie uses the 2 children in this story to explain how the 3 jars are different and the advantages of saving. She also gives examples of ways to earn money. Both Emily & Jacob are allowed to spend money, but only from the spending jar. They are each saving for something special, and the text in the book shows how small amounts can add up. Fun illustrations and a bit of humor.

Meet the Author

I was born and raised in Paris, France and moved to the United States in January 2000. It's been quite an adjustment but I don't regret anything. Although I miss my family tremendeously as well as irreplacable French food, I can comfortably say today that I am an American and love my country of adoption. A country where your dream can come true if you put forth the effort and don't give up.
My one-year old boy, my husband and my full-time job administering pension plans keep me very busy and happy.
