WIN A COPY of Joe the Monkey Saves for a Goal, by John Lanza!

Have you been trying to think of ways to talk to your child about money? If so, I highly recommend the Money Mammals series by John Lanza. I've previously reviewed two books in the series: Joe the Monkey Learns to Share and Joe the Monkey Saves for a Goal. Both were fantastic and really inspired my three-year-old, Magda, to start her own "3-Jar" system to manage her allowance and birthday money. She now has jars labelled "Spend," "Save," and "Share" (plus a fourth one labelled "Invest" for money that goes right into the bank).

Now the author is pairing up with Cozy Little Book Journal and The Bookish Elf to give you a chance to win a copy of the first book in the series, Joe the Monkey Saves for a Goal

Use the widget below to enter. Contest runs until Sunday, May 12, 2013 (which is Mother's Day!). Also, continue reading to see pictures of Magda's Spend-Share-Save-Invest jars!

Magda organizing her allowance into her separate jars
Her allowance ($3.00 a week, because she's 3 years old) goes into the piggy bank.Then it is divided up into "Spend," "Save," "Share" and "Invest" jars.
Magda decorated the jars with stickers. The "Spend" jar is her favourite (can you tell?)
This is one of MY bookshelves, by the way, in case you were wondering why my 3-year-old has these books in her collection!
