A Smart Way To Start teaches children about earning money and equal pay.
For all the children’s life goals, there are two things they will need: some money to start and a smart plan indeed.

You earned your first pennies by doing your chores.
You saved lots of pennies, so now you have more.
But inside your piggy bank, money can’t grow.
It lies there quite still, with nowhere to go.
What if your pennies could grow day by day,
rather than lying there, all locked away?
Is there a smart way to save and be clever,
to make sure your pennies keep growing forever?close

You have a small wish and you’ll make it come true.
You’d like to buy one thing you saw in a store.
But once you are there… you want so much more!
