  • (1888PressRelease) January 30, 2010 - The Financial Fairy Tales series of books take a unique approach to financial literacy for younger children by exploring money and business related themes through engaging fairy stories. Dreams Can Come True, the first book in the series is available from Authorhouse from February 2010.

    The Financial Fairy Tales series of books represent a new approach to Financial Education. By making learning about money serious fun, the books entertain as well as educate, whilst introducing children to important concepts such as saving, investment, honesty and enterprise. The books take a unique approach by exploring money and business related themes through engaging fairy stories. The first book in the series, Dreams Can Come True is published by Authorhouse and will be available from February 2010.

    The book's author, Daniel Britton, brings over 15 years experience as a teacher and education consultant plus 5 as a financial adviser. He has combined this knowledge to produce a series of stories which will explore and explain financial principles to children typically aged between 5 and 11.

    The Financial Fairy Tales will form the basis of a financial education strategy which will include teachers' notes, multimedia presentations and guidance for parents. The aim is to promote financial literacy and enterprise awareness around the world.

    "The current economic climate worldwide has highlighted the need for better financial education", states Daniel, "by introducing financial ideas and possibilities at an early age, parents can give their children an advantage for later in life."

    "What differentiates these books," according to Daniel, "is the fact that they can be enjoyed on several levels. Besides being fun to read and beautifully illustrated, they can stimulate ideas and encourage children to explore their potential. The stories subtly introduce financial concepts as part of the fairy tale story lines rather than attempt to deliver facts."

    It is envisioned that teacher's will be able to use the books and forthcoming resources as stimulus in the classroom, while parents and grandparents may enjoy sharing the books as bedtime reading.

    Dreams Can Come True is the first in the Financial Fairy Tales series published by Authorhouse. A sample of the first chapter is available for free as a digital download from www.thefinancialfairytales.com.
