The Yoyo and the Piggy Bank
by Susan Werner Thoresen,
illustrated by Keith Eveland
A young girl learns about financial goal-setting as she does chores and saves coins in a piggy bank to buy her first yoyo.
Anna’s pal Jackson dazzles her with his bright-green yoyo, inspiring Anna to buy her own. But how? Anna’s mother encourages her to earn the money herself, providing Anna with an heirloom piggy bank for saving (and rattling!) her coins. Neighbors offer paying chores and teach Anna some wicked tricks for the sparkly purple yoyo she wants from Mr. Jones’s store. The colorful illustrations capture the joy Anna feels earning her coins, learning about money, and shaking her humongous piggy bank as she nears her goal.
