I received an email from Sam (Sammy Rabbit) & he wanted me to share this announcement with you all!
This looks like it is going to be awesome & you definitely want to be apart of this & learn what you can!
We are never to old to learn something new!!!!
We are very pleased to announce a new tool to build kids (and parents) skills and enthusiasm for smart money habits: The Language of Saving! Sammy’s Vocabulary-Speller Activity Booklet
We think introducing kids and families to saving and money language is important for 4 reasons:
1 – We live in language
2 – It will help them develop smart money habits
3 – It will help them develop a saving and asset building “mentality-mindset”
4 – Kids (and adults) are underexposed to the language of saving (as opposed to the language of consumption)
Let me ask you a question, when you hear the word “frugal” to describe a person, do you picture someone who is “cheap” or someone who is “prudent” and possibly a wise user of a limited resource?
If you read a lot of personal finance books like the Millionaire Next Door and Benjamin Franklin’s Way to Wealth you will see the word frugal used in an esteemed and complimentary manner.
I suspect that is far less likely if you heard that term or the word “thrifty” in day to day conversation.Consciously or unconsciously, the vast majority of language both kids and adults are exposed to as it relates to money is overwhelming about spending-consumption. This includes school books, that when they do include dialogue or problems about money, normally it is about “buying” or “purchasing” items.
At any income level, but particularly lower levels, where the allocation of every penny, nickel, and dime are critical, “Saving” and “Asset Building” need to be beginning thoughts (or priorities, if you will) as opposed to after thoughts. As my father and mother reminded us habitually, which is why I feel so passionately about early financial education, if we have money for sodas and slurpees than we have money for saving and education. Son, if you want to exchange your future for a soda, you will have that opportunity at 18.
The Language of Saving is a 32 page booklet that introduces and explains 34 key saving and money words like: saving, habit, plan, earn, deposit, want, need, prepared, grow, compound, etc.
It does it in a manner that makes it easy for parents, teachers, adult trainers and caregivers to explain to kids and for them to understand. The booklet targets children ages 4 to 7 (pre K to 1st grade) as well as new language learners of all ages.
The book can be used on its own or combined with Sammy’s coloring book (Saving is a Great Habit) and Sticker Set – as all the vocabulary comes from those two items.
Using these items in combination will provide additional context and reinforcement for kids to grasp the meaning of words.
I’ve included pricing details below and would be delighted to answer questions or fulfill orders.
