    Interact with your kids on important financial topics

    Ellen Sabin's book fits my bill - I want books that I can share with my kids that encourage discussion. You can't say too much about that quality in a title. Too often, we find ourselves competing with texting and Facebook for quality time with your children. Kids need to learn about the value of money and how to save at an early age. This book is a great foundation.
