SCARSDALE, N.Y.- Scarsdale resident Rachel Gottlieb is marrying her two passions with "Zac's Dollar Dilemma," a new children's book due out in August.
The first-time author who's day job is as a wealth manager, hopes her story helps parents teach their kids the value of a dollar. The book is intended for children in preschool and elementary school.
Her goal, said the mom of two, is to introduce the topic of managing money in a fun and engaging way that kids can understand. She was inspired by her 4-year-old son, Zac.
“Zac has no idea about money, and I wanted to start teaching him about saving, spending, giving, and investing," explained Gottlieb. "Parents struggle instilling these types of principles early with their kids. It’s hard to teach about money, so I’m hoping my book will makes things easier."
Why write a book? Books are a unique way to instill principles and morals in children, Gottlieb told Daily Voice. "Books help keep kids engaged because their characters are relatable, and they resonate with kids. Books provoke conversation."
"Zac's Dollar Dilemma" will be available on Amazon and both online and in-stores at Barnes and Noble in August.
