Troubling Issues For The Growing Child

By Jeffrey Patnaude

Audio Sample

The first book was inspired by the act of a 10 - year old boy who swept the kitchen as part of his daily chores. His disposal one day included 3 pennies that inadvertently had fallen on the floor. When asked by his mother, "Why would you throw money into the trash?", he responded, "Mom, they are only pennies!" Hearing that story, it was then that Jeff Patnaude became compelled to write a children's book series about a penny and the value that even the smallest of coins contributes. "Penny" is a counting book on addition, the first of a four-part series in the education of young children in the area of financial literacy.

"Penny" not only captures children’s imagination and enjoyment for mathematics, but also encourages beginning a pathway toward responsible stewardship. The book has a simple yet significant lesson for all ages; a penny "saved" is a penny earned.
