Sometimes little kids learn more when they hear it from stories. That is why preschool teachers incorporate lessons in songs, stories and playtimes. Teaching your child about money and how to handle it correctly is no different. Stop pushing her to understand your explanations that she could not relate to and start telling her stories that will surely help.

These are stories that can help your child learn more about money:

A Chair for My Mother, Vera B. Williams
Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday, Judith Viorst
Can I Have Some Money? Max Gets It, Candi Sparks
Can I Have Some Money Please? Twyla Prindle
It’s a Habit, Sammy Rabbit! Sam X Renick
Lucky the Golden Goose, John Wrenn
Max’s Money, Ken Wilson-Max
My Little Penny Book and Bank, Betty Schwartz
My Rows and Piles of Coins, Tololwa M. Mollel
The Berenstain Bears’ Trouble with Money, Stan and Jan Berenstain
Will Sammy Ride the World’s First Space Coaster? Sam X Renick

Where Is My Money? Twyla Prindle

Please share your stories and experiences on how you taught your kids about money. I am starting to teach Peaches the concept of money and how to handle it correctly.
