Designed for kids but written for parents too

Each SmartChoiceNation book is written as a conversation guide that covers a specific financial education concept. In addition to the story, the book includes suggested family activities and a glossary of terms to reinforce the learning process. Ayo’s Money Jar focuses on money management, and explores the Give,Grow,Go (3Gs) concept, a SCN money management rule of thumb for children: 

  • GiveA portion of a child’s allowance should be shared with those who are less fortunate.

  • Grow A portion of a child’s allowance should be saved, so that it can grow or increase over time.

  • Go: A portion of a child’s allowance should be spent on or go toward those items that a child desires

The series has been developed to help teach children critical money lessons. The series is aligned with the Jump$tart Coalition’s National Standards for K-12 Personal Finance Education.
