Lily Learns about Wants and Needs
From the Series Cloverleaf Books ™ — Money Basics
How should we handle our money?
Lily wants a new bike. And a new raincoat. And ice cream. But how many of these things does she need? As Lily and her dad drive around town, Lily soon discovers that wants and needs are different things. She picks out which things people have to have. She might even remind her dad that he doesn’t need root beer!
These simple, engaging stories present basic financial literacy concepts, such as saving, spending, borrowing, and comparison shopping to build a foundation for a lifetime of money smarts.
