Book Review - The Financial Fairy Tales

I was given the opportunity to review the book, Dreams Can Come True by Daniel Britton of The Financial Fairy Tales. Daniel has written a series of stories to encourage young readers to learn about money, enterprise and the business in life. A couple of words on his logo are Learning before Earning.

Dreams Can Come True tells a story of Tom, who is the son of a woodcutter who wants a horse of his own but can't afford one. He gets a job in a stable and gets to work with the horses and also gets to ride them. His uncle teaches him how to start a business and also how to teach others what he does and have them help him earn money.

It is a great story teaching kids how to work and save for things they want. I feel part of the problem with some kids is instant gratification and not having to wait for things that they want.

I feel financial literacy is very important and this is a terrific book to teach those lessons and I highly recommend it.
