The Heavy Purse
A beautifully illustrated picture book designed to help parents ease into money conversations with their kids. The story introduces children to the concept of save, spend and share and makes goal-setting fun.
Lauren and Taylor’s purses are overflowing with coins and are so heavy. They just don’t know what to do with their money! Their mom comes to the rescue and teaches Lauren and Taylor a new game. In a fun-filled afternoon, the girls dream and giggle as they discover how to use their magical coins to create joy for themselves and others.
