The Squirrel Manifesto

A modern-day fable teaching kids and their parents the four fundamental themes of money

From acclaimed and award-winning financial adviser Ric Edelman and his wife and business partner, Jean Edelman, comes a modern-day fable teaching kids and their parents the four fundamental themes of money that will help children develop healthy financial lives: spend a little, save a little, give a little and tax a little.

Financial habits form at very early ages, so, make sure the young ones in your life grow up with healthy money habits. From handling allowances and birthday money to the cash they’ll earn babysitting or mowing lawns, The Squirrel Manifesto helps children learn the opportunities—and obligations—that money provides.

Even very young children can learn the value of money by following the simple rules of the Squirrel Manifesto.  By seeing how a squirrel eats nuts, gathers some for later, and gives some to those in need, children learn how to live a successful, rewarding life. 

This charming tale from Ric and Jean Edelman will help you instill in your children the importance of saving, spending and giving back. The book is for age level 4-8/grade level: P-3.  It includes an outstanding Grown-Up Guide to help parents give valuable financial advice to their children.
