Darius Wants A Dog
Darius Wants A Dog
In this first installment of The Financially Fit Kidz series, Darius teaches young readers about budgeting, leadership, and that it’s okay to change your mind.
Darius wants a dog, but he doesn’t know if he wants the responsibility. When Darius asks his dads for a dog, they let Darius babysit his aunt’s dog first. While it’s so much fun to play with the dog, Darius must learn about how to budget for things like food and toys, how to make time for a pet, and that owning a dog isn’t all fun all the time.
Tip Sheet Included
Parents will also find a fun and easy-to-use tip sheet in the back of the book that will help them start conversations with their kids about financial responsibility.
Darius and his Dads are excited to announce that 10% of the profits from Darius Wants a Dog will be funneled into marginalized communities and non profit organizations to help in increasing financial literacy for children. This is just one way that the Financially Fit Kidz series is working to empower young readers all over the world!
