Let’s Meet Ms. Money is a picture book that teaches children about money. The setting for the book is a classroom where cousins Grant and Dominic meet Ms. Money. The students in the classroom, ranging from ages 4 to 6, learn what money looks like, how to count it, how and why we use money, and how we earn it.
Ms. Money uses her whiteboard to present to the class both metal coins and paper dollars. She leads an exercise on how to recognize different amounts of money and how to count it. Using visual examples, the teacher discusses what money is used for – both needs and wants. Ms. Money explains that we all need clothes to wear, food to eat and a place to live.
But how do we get money? Ms. Money tells the students- You Work for It! The lesson continues with a discussion of the various types of jobs people do to earn money for their family. To help teach the class Ms. Money invites Grant and Dominic’s moms to share with the class how they earn money for their families.

Financial literacy refers to individuals making informed judgments and effective decisions about managing their money. Financial illiteracy is a huge problem in the United States, affecting both individuals and businesses. A 2013 FINRA Investor Education Foundation Survey of approximately 25,000 adults found that 56% of adults do not have three months’ worth of expenses saved up in case of an emergency; 34% make only the minimum credit card payment; and 61% could only answer three or fewer questions on a five-question quiz about financial literacy.
A 2015 survey indicated that 71% of people believe they are financially literate, and only 29% believe they are not. However, the financial literacy test tells us that the number of people who are not financially literate is much higher than 29%. This highlights the fact that people are not aware of their degree of financial literacy. In fact, people tend to overestimate their level of financial knowledge.
