025 Money books for kids - teaching children about money

In this episode I chat with Will Rainey about his strategies for teaching children about money. We also chat about money books for kids, particularly Will's fabulous book designed to help children prosper and grow in today's world. Although the book is mainly aimed at children, the principles apply equally to adults, so have a listen to our chat to learn more about maximising your money both now and in the future.

A true advocate of the “catch them young” principle, Will Rainey joins us in this episode to share his insights on the importance of educating our children about money. He's got a wealth of experience with his background in finance, providing investment advice to governments, insurance companies, and some of the world's largest pension schemes. Will aims to empower parents as well as teachers so that they can not only teach but show their children simple, yet valuable, lessons on money and saving for their future with the help of his book Grandpa's Fortune Fables.
