Financial skills are life skills that all children need to learn as they grow and mature. It is much easier to teach good money habits when children are young. In addition, stories make learning fun and easy! With these concepts in mind, Nancy Phillips created the Zela Wela Kids® series, for parents, grandparents and teachers to help children learn these essential life skills.
The universal themes presented throughout the book series are:
1. financial life skills
2. the process of goal achievement
3. respecting diversity
4. entrepreneurial thinking
5. the power of giving
In The Zela Wela Kids Learn about Becoming Entrepreneurs, Jack, Emma, and their friends Carlos and Maria open a lemonade stand and learn important life lessons like:
* the meaning of “entrepreneur”
* the importance of creating new ideas
* how to grow your money
* the value of working as a team
* the joy of giving
* the pride that comes with setting and achieving a goal
This financial story book is most applicable for children who live in countries which use “dollars and cents” currency.
