Money. Money. Money. Sometimes you have it. Sometimes you don’t. Either way, it’s important to know how to manage it. I’ve always said that learning how to manage money starts when you’re young. How young exactly? In my opinion, preschool!
When I learned about a book series from Buck Academy that helps parents educate their children about personal finances, I jumped at the chance to check out Buck Making Cents.
What Is Buck Academy?
Buck Academy is a family-owned business written and illustrated by husband and wife team Dustin and Febyolla Goss. They started this business to teach their son about money when they couldn’t find any simple resources about money for kids.
The character Buck takes on the persona of a dollar and then, gives basic lessons on how money works. According to Buck Academy, the goal is to “create a new society of young savers and investors.”
How We Used Buck Academy:
We used the books as both a read-aloud and during quiet reading time. For extra, we discussed more of what was read for comprehension and then applied the learning by playing with fake money and matching it to the pictures in the book.
We received 3 different books:
- Buck Making Cents
- Quick Cents To A Buck workbook and
- Baby Buck How Much Am I
Buck Makes Cents is geared towards 5-9-year-olds while Baby Buck How Much Am I is a board book geared towards 0-4-year-olds. Both books have pictures of coins in the books foiled so that they shine and have a real look to them.
The Quick Cents To A Buck workbook is just a quick summary of Buck Makes Cents and has money facts and values.
How Much Is Buck Academy?
These books are decently priced as follows:
- Buck Making Cents: $17.95
- Quick Cents To A Buck workbook: free for the shipping cost of $3.99 or free with the purchase of Buck Making Cents.
- Baby Buck How Much Am I: $14.95
They even sell really cute Buck greeting cards!
My Thoughts On Buck Academy
These books are so fun and cute! My kids loved reading them and touching the foiled coins. It makes learning about money fun and engaging.
I would recommend these books for money learning fun!
