We all need to master the knowledge and skills to make smart financial choices and prepare for whatever the future brings. Thinking Money for Kids strives to teach children ages 7-11 and their parents, caregivers and educators about financial literacy topics—like saving, spending and budgeting—in a way that is not only understandable, but fun.

Thinking Money for Kids is a museum-quality exhibition that is traveling to 50 U.S. public libraries between 2019 and 2021. Through a bustling community market-themed storyline, digital interactive content and other fun, hands-on activities, the exhibition explores:

  • What is money?
  • How do we earn money?
  • Saving and spending
  • Money values such as fairness and charitableness
  • Making responsible financial decisions

Thinking Money for Kids is brought to communities nationwide by the FINRA Investor Education Foundation and the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office.
