We can’t afford it!

What to do when your mom or dad says…
“We can’t afford it”
Berry
1983

Joy Berry is a regular here at ALB. We have posted some of her stuff before here. Usually, these books are about a specific problem from a child’s point of view. Today’s “We can’t afford it” title is about budgeting and making money. I just cringed when job loss was just another day at the office, and garbage collectors were dissed. I also kind of wanted to slap those kids upside the head for being complainers. (Probably not a good idea…)

Kid's Guide to Managing Money

Money Management – For Kids!

A Kid’s Guide to Managing Money
A Children’s Book about Money Management
Wilt
1979

We have featured a couple of Joy’s books here on the website and I found this other one lurking in my own collection! Yikes! This title, like all her others, are over 100 pages. I can’t see any kid sitting down with this title and holding out for 100 pages plus of annoying pictures and text.
