A well written book that has inspired my 5 yr old to begin saving “like Luke” . It also inspired a conversation about giving with my Kindergartner! Thank you Sammie for this positive representation!

I came across this book on my cousin's Facebook page and it captured my attention. I purchased this book for my son because of the valuable lesson it teaches about financial literacy for kids. My son loved the book!!! The illustrations in the book is so eye catching and has a very interactive vibe!

This book is a must have for every child. It is a great way to teach kids about money early. The book talks about saving, spending, and sharing. It covers the basics extremely well and gives hints of questions to ask the child for his/her feedback. There was something to learn from each page. Great read!
