Pretty Penny Comes Up Short by Devon Kinch

Pretty Penny stories are about the use of money and are written for young ones.  They send a positive message and impress children with the value of money and how to earn and save it.

Step Into Reading sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.  This book is for grades 1-3.

Pretty Penny wants to help Doodle's Animal Farm, but she doesn't even have a penny in her purse.  She does have the money she set aside to help others, so she takes that money from her savings jar.  But she'd really like to help more.

Soon she and her friends brainstorm for an idea to make money and come up with showing a movie.  It's a big success, but Iggy has kept some of the proceeds for himself.  It's not long until he's found out.  And his punishment fits the crime quite well.

This is an easy to read fun story that leaves your child with a good message.  There are other books in the Pretty Penny series that you can share with your children, too.

Happy reading.

It's never too young to teach children about money, as we can see from the way so many are in debt in today's society. What a great way to teach through stories that can be read over and over again!
