Money on the Bookshelf: Using Children's Books to Reach Limited Resource Families with Money Management Education
Helping families develop financial management skills and improve their communications about money is the goal of Money on the Bookshelf, a program built around children's books and used by Nevada Cooperative Extension to target limited resource audiences. Results showed significant improvements in how often parents: (1) talked with their children about things that relate to money, (2) included their children in talks about how family money is used, and (3) used everyday events as opportunities to talk with their children about money.
