SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Want to teach your kids the value of money but unsure when to start the conversation? How about now, when they are young?
That's the mission behind "Zac's Dollar Dilemma," a new children's book by Scarsdale resident and Wealth Manager Rachel Gottlieb.
The first-time author, who's book is out this month hopes her story helps parents teach their kids about money in a fun and engaging way. The book is intended for children in preschool and elementary school and is written in a way that kids can understand. The mom of two 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," she explained. "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 start the conversation with a book? "Books are a unique way to instill principles and morals in children," said Gottlieb. "They help keep kids engaged because their characters are relatable, and they resonate with kids. Books provoke conversation."
"Zac's Dollar Dilemma" is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
