"Kid translator" Julia Cook offers new book to aid these discussions
I Am Money released by Sourcebooks, Jan 2024
OMAHA, Neb. - Dec. 5, 2023 - PRLog -- Blue Monday and the holidays offer wonderful opportunities for kids and parents to learn alongside each other the importance of financial literacy. It's also a time to make new year's money management resolutions together.
Parenting expert and children's book author Julia Cook has co-created a new book I am Money that provides tools for these conversations. Partnering with New York Times & Wall Street Journal bestselling financial author Garrett Gunderson, I am Money will be released by Sourcebooks next month.
Together, children and parents will enjoy learning prudent and valuable money advice through the coupling of penny-wise prose and engaging illustrations by Josh Cleland.
Some of these thrifty and smart tips include:
You were born with gifts. Invest in yourself!
Learn new things. Find out what you do best, and work hard to discover what you love to do. "YOU" are your GREATEST INVESTMENT!
Pay yourself first! For every dollar you get, put 15 cents away in a special place. Always remember to take care of yourself so you can give your best to others.
Don't spend money that you do not have.
Julia offers additional tips through a recent piece she co-authored with Gunderson here. A digital trailer can also be found here.
The I am Money book launch currently includes evolving stops in Dallas, Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Chapel Hill, Bluffton (SC), Indiana (South Bend, Center Grove and Indianapolis) and California (Roseville and Folsom).

Her books have won multiple accolades, including several AEP (American Educational Publishers) Distinguished Achievement Awards, Mom's Choice Awards and National Parenting Seals of Approval.
Cook's ability to interpret current events and children's issues into imaginative and relatable "kid language" has made her a much sought-after speaker and media figure.
