This episode of Reading with Your Kids focused on the importance of teaching children financial literacy from a young age. Our first guest is Anthony Delauney. He tells us about his Owning the Dash book series which teaches kids financial concepts through storybooks. He emphasized starting these lessons early through activities parents and children can do together. The next guest, Brooke Lapides, presented her new book Financial Fun from A to Z which defines financial terms for kids in an alphabet format. Lapides discussed how her work in finance revealed many adults' lack financial knowledge and felt compelled to create a resource for parents. The host agreed that openly discussing money matters with kids from a young age better prepares them for adulthood decisions.

The episode concluded with an interview of author Andrea Petitte about her young adult novels addressing serious issues teenagers face such as gambling addiction, eating disorders, and loss. Petitte aims to create relatable stories that start important conversations between parents and their kids. Overall, the guests stressed that financial literacy and open parent-child communication are critical life skills best taught through early and ongoing engagement.
