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