Answers to these questions and many more are explained in simple terms and illustrations that kids can enjoy in Credit Talks.

The book even introduces “interest” and how it is calculated and can make something cost more than it costs in a store.

Joyce Kasprzak, Children’s Historical Publishing Executive Director, says, As with Money Talks we noticed there wasn’t a book in the marketplace that could easily teach children about credit and its role in a way that engages them through story and activities.” The engaging illustrations of a talking credit card deliver basic information in a way grade school kids understand and appreciate.

Author Nancy Slezak has spent over 20 years in the financial services industry and is experienced in teaching financial literacy. After learning much about how kids and teachers received Money Talks Nancy authored Credit Talks with new insight about teaching financial concepts.

PAUL LAURENCE DUNBAR LEARNING ACTIVITY BOOK ($ 5.00 each Plus $3.35 Shipping)

Why is Paul Laurence Dunbar relevant to children today? It’s because he was the first African-American in history to be highly regarded by all Americans as an intelligent, profoundly gifted writer who celebrated his cultural background as he examined it. It will always be important for children of this country from all cultural backgrounds to learn about who came before them to pave the way to their dream-pursuits, so that they too can excel at being a writer, a scientist, a businessman, whichever interest sparks their imagination. Paul was the first African-American to gain national popularity and critical acclaim as a poet in a profession dominated by whites. His success gave young African-Americans hope to pursue the arts as a profession when blacks were only encouraged to get industrial jobs.

Paul’s poetry addressed the challenges and joys of being an African-American and many of those challenges and joys are still relevant today.
