The Plastic Rectangle: A Children’s Book about Money by Katie Friedman
The Plastic Rectangle introduces the concept of money to children from an early age and teaches them about the value of money, saving, and hard work.
Generally, we go to the store with our plastic cards and show them to the shop owner and purchase anything like pizza, ice cream, or clothes, but we never think about where the money comes from.
This rhyming picture book teaches children that money comes from hard work, and money is important in life, but love and spending time with family are more important.
I clearly remember once I played doctor-doctor with Dhruvin, and I told him, Doctor, I am poor, I don’t have money to pay your fee, and then he replied very innocently, No problem, you can pay by card.
So money and financial terms are complex to children, but this book perfectly explains the concept of money or plastic money and how money works in a fun and playful manner. This book has a beautiful message, and its simple text and happy illustrations will keep the children captivated throughout the book.
Perfect for 3+
