This author's story is the right way to teach children the value of saving and making money....The illustrations are adorable and colorful, especially the childrens big blue eyes...The pictures alone were making me and my niece laugh..With today's economy parents are working hard to just keep a roof over their entire family..Years ago I didn't even demand or get everything I wanted....This is exactly the way I was taught responsiblity, respect, to value and save money to put in my piggy bank..So, this story teaches Daniel and Emily how to come up with small ideas to learn how to earn money..

Daniel is demanding a game, and Maya wants to go to the amusement park..They become mad at Dad because he says no, they will have to wait for their Birthday's...So, Emily and Daniel decide to sell lemonade at a baseball game, pick up recyclable cans in the neighborhood and offer to do chores around the house..Mom and Dad are proud of them...Do the children learn how to save up enough money for their little jar and be able to get what they want..

This cute, happy story will definitely engage and hold your child's attention..My niece loved it

One of the most valuable lessons that parents can teach their children is the value of money and how to manage their money. In the story, Emily and Daniel wanted their parents to buy them an expensive game, but their parents refused. To their credit, the two kids came up with a scheme to earn the money themselves. Their parents encouraged them and offered to match what the kids earned. Their money-making venture - a lemonade stand - had some initial hiccups, but Emily and Daniel persisted in their efforts until they were successful. Success breeds success, and soon the kids were enjoying working and earning their own money, and taking pride in their success.

The story is a nice lesson for kids to earn their own way instead of expecting others to pay for everything. Emily and Daniel came to realize that their parents weren't "made of money" and that their own efforts could be helpful to themselves and to their parents. Learning about becoming financially independent would serve them well throughout their life.

When I read the story, "Emily and Daniel's First Dollar", to my six year old daughter, I found that she instantly became interested in the story. She loved the idea that the two kids were working to make money for what they wanted. Being from a family that cannot always afford everything she wants, my daughter understands that there are times she does not get stuff that she wants. Shortly after I finished reading it to her, she was asking me what she could do to make money.

Author Amit Eshet comes to the important arena of writing children's books with the motivation to start children while they are young to deal with the concept of financial independence. His preparatory credentials are strong: he is a financial planner, holding a B.S. in Economics and Management from Israel's leading university, the Technion, has more than 20 years experience in managing large scale factories and acquisitions divisions and advising several industry-leading small and large scale businesses across the globe, and has writing professional eBooks on various financial subjects. And here he joins with the very fine assistance from illustrator Emily Zieroth to write his first children's book about finance!

Emily and Daniel are sister and brother and we meet them grumbling in the back seat of their mother's car that their mother doesn't buy them all the toys they want. Out of frustration Emily has an idea: she and Daniel will earn their own money despite their young years. The two share their plans with their `stingy' parents and are surprised when their parents are all for the idea, stating they will match every dollar the kids earn. Their first business venture is to sell their homemade iced tea and lemonade at the baseball game, but they sell very few glasses and spilled their supply. Despondent, they are encouraged by their little sister Maya, and sure enough the following weekend the make and sell their drinks and make a profit of $22., which when matched with their patent's plan results in $44. With that kind of encouragement Emily and Daniel decide to pick up discarded cans and bottles and turn them in for cash - as well as helping the environment. Their neighbors notice the success of the kids and chip in with gathering cans and bottle to add to the cause.

The children in the story helped to motivate my children to be more financially responsible. Not only does it teach about the concept of financial responsibility, it also has a game that comes with the story that teaches the children about world money. My children play matching games all day long matching up the money with the country that it comes from.

Children when they are small do not understand about money. My granddaughter who was three, thought all you had to do was go to an ATM machine to get money, like her daddy. Now, that she is four she has a better understanding of money, but not the reality. It is important for all children at some point to understand what money is, why it is needed and how hard their parents work to provide for their families. Money is a subject for the entire family to discuss.

Emily and Daniel lived with their parents in a happy home. They both did not understand why their parents did not purchase the presents and toys they asked for. Daniel, especially had difficulty understanding, and was so angry one day that their mother did not buy a game he wanted, that he went straight to his room after dinner. Emily was a little older, and had some reasoning ability. She asked her father to take them to a park. He told them it was very expensive and he could not afford to take them unless it was a special event. Emily and Daniel decided that they would make their own money, and this is their story and their adventure.

Amit Eshet, the author, has a financial background, and she has written an excellent book for children to start learning about money and finances. This book is written in language children can understand, and this will be a time to open the discussion about money. Emily Zieroth, the Illustrator, has given us bright, vivid illustrations, which bring the children, their families and their adventures to life. What an exciting book.
