Three Little Piggy Banks
Financial literacy can be described as having the knowledge, skills and confidence to make responsible financial decisions. How we manage our money and make informed financial decisions has a profound impact on our ability to successfully manage our affairs and reach our financial goals. Sadly the level of financial literacy in Canada has declined in recent times putting a growing number of Canadians at risk of experiencing financial problems and hardship. In her book, Three Little Piggy Banks, Pamela George answers the question we hear from people young and old “why don’t they teach this stuff in school?” and takes us on an entertaining and practical journey of helping younger children learn and master the basic money skills of saving, sharing and spending. With easy access to credit today, many adults have forgotten or never learned the value of delayed gratification and the feeling you get from knowing that you saved up and paid for something with your money instead of borrowed money. The Three Little Piggy Banks is a resource that parents and teachers can embrace and share with their children and students and help them learn these important life skills.
