Collioure, France, January 27, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- 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 first book in the series, Dreams Can Come True is being published by Authorhouse and will be available in February 2010.
The book’s author, Daniel Britton, is a former teacher, education consultant and financial adviser. He has combined this experience to produce a series of stories which will introduce financial principles to children 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 in early February 2010. A sample of the first chapter is available for free as a digital download from www.thefinancialfairytales.com.
