Happy Monday, Frugal Farmer friends!! I’m so very excited to be a part of this promotion and giveaway. My dear friend Shannon, who blogs over at The Heavy Purse, has released an awesome new book, geared toward kids to help them become eager to learn to save and manage money properly! As you can see, The Lemonade Stand has an engaging yellow cover. However what’s on the inside is even better. Not only is the book filled with colorful and fun illustrations, it’s filled with valuable and useful information for kids. As you might guess, the story is about kids who open a Lemonade stand.
Four kids, all with dreams of their own, start a lemonade stand as a way to make those dreams happen. Their road to success is not without bumps along the way, but the team works through them gracefully and makes it to their goal. One of my favorite things about the book is that the kids are required to pay mom and dad back for the supplies needed for the “business” when it’s time to count up the profits. This little addition to the story is, in my opinion, vitally important, as it makes sure kids know the real story about owning and running a business.
If you’re interested in teaching your kids how to earn and manage money responsibly, then The Lemonade Stand is for you. Thanks Shannon, for such an awesome addition to the world of financial literacy for children.

Join Lauren and Taylor in their continuing money adventures in The Lemonade Stand by Shannon Ryan, CFP®. Shannon is a Mom on a mission to help busy parents teach their children simple, value-based principles that guide their money decisions and support their long-term financial well-being.
“Everyone handles money. Unfortunately, not everyone does it with confidence. Money has long been a taboo topic in many homes, which makes it even harder for parents to know where to start or what to teach. So I created a series of children books to help parents ease into these important conversations. Financial literacy is one of the most loving gifts you can give your children, and I encourage everyone to make money conversations a priority in your home.”
