How do you describe economics to a 7-year-old? Should your preteen care about the government? Are your kids learning about the free market in class?
For too long, parents have been at the mercy of professional curriculum developers to instruct their children. History is watered down, key principles omitted altogether, and time and attention are given to things of lesser importance.
Each book in this series focuses on a different aspect of the principles of a free society: free markets, competition, individual rights, the non-aggression principle, personal responsibility, protectionism, and a variety of other issues—all boiled down to core concepts that children ages 5-10 can easily grasp.
While there are many books to teach these ideas to adults, there has been a profound void in the children’s literature market. The Tuttle Twins series close the gap, helping parents convey the principles of freedom to their kids in a fun way.
I purchased all of the Tuttle Twin books and actually bought two of each so that the boys could follow along as we all take turns reading aloud. We do both silent reading and out-loud reading but for these books I wanted to be able to stop and expand on the ideas or answer questions as they come up.
We started with the Creature from Jekyll Island because the boys liked the name and it ended up being very interesting. The key concept is understanding inflation and how it works but there was also a great history lesson on money when info I didn't even know! Since reading the book the boys point out inflation to me whenever they hear it and have shared the history of money to the grandparents in case they didn't know ;)
I highly recommend the book series for all your kids even teens. The concepts can be expanded upon should it be too easy or simplified by the parent if too difficult.
