Comments from the author about writing:
We expend time and money to teach reading, math, music, and athletics, but we expect children to absorb how to handle finances. Learning to manage money and create wealth is so much more than a skill—it’s a lifestyle. Becoming successful takes practice, just like learning to swim, play piano, or perfect any talent. Even young children can grasp basic money management concepts, and learn to build wealth if we show them, which is why writing simple books for financial education is so important.  The challenge is to make a complex subject (like the stock market) understandable and fun, keeping information accurate while adding a twist to entice young readers.
