Lawn Boy

Lawn Boy uses comedy and a bit of a surreal story line to introduce children to the world of economics. I had to explain a lot to the kids – stocks, shares, entrepreneurs – but they actually listened and enjoyed my mini lessons since it pertained to the story.

Somewhere Around the Corner

I enjoyed the book not only for the story but the great discussion points. The phrase “somewhere around the corner” is repeated throughout and symbolizes a person’s dreams for the future – and that the character had to walk around the corner themselves and go get their dreams.
