According to Jacobs, also author of Life & Money, a personal financial management workbook and guide, "It's important to educate children and adults about smart financial practices but with Jake, I also hope to facilitate a conversation between parents and children. Part of my role as a mother of two young children is to educate them about the importance of saving, planning for the future and spending wisely, especially in today's economic climate. My goal in writing this book is to start what I hope will be a lifelong dialog about smart money management for my family and others."
