Financial Lessons for Your Horse Lover

Teaching children about money and the values that surround it is an important, but often neglected parental duty.  I’ve written several stories aimed at children that attempt to convey the money messages I’ve learned and want my grandchildren to assimilate.

I’ve labelled them Financial Fables.  My Granddaughter’s favorites are the ones about horses.  She is 7 and has been nuts for horses for 2 years already!

At her request, I’ve started writing the Whinny series stories (there are currently 3 and more in the works) to PDF style books and am offering all of them to you for a small charge.

The PDF versions of the stories are an easy gift idea for your little horse lover.  I’ve recently discovered that (if downloaded to your PC), the PDF software can read the story aloud for you!  I haven’t, however, found a way for that to happen when viewing a PDF online, so if you know a way to make that happen, please drop me a note!

Here are the Whinny stories now available – for only $1.79 each!  They are only available here.  Join me in helping the next generation learn great money values.

Just email using our contact form if you would like to purchase them and I will send you a printable pdf.  I will invoice you from Paypal for the payment.  You can pay with credit card or Paypal balance.

Whinny makes a change.

Financial fables (of which this book is one) are short tales – often using animals to teach a moral or lesson about money and finances.

As part of my efforts to help bring financial literacy to the next generation, the Whinny Series of financial fables joins a universal girl favorite (horses) with stories of self sufficiency, learning to earn, moving ahead and dealing with all the expensive things life can throw at us.

Whinny Makes a Change is the first story in the series. In it, Whinny looks beyond her home environment to see the other possibilities the world offers. Knowing that you can do something different than what has always been done is an important lesson to learn, one that can help propel you into a satisfying and lucrative career.

When you read this fable to your youngster, take the time to ask her penetrating questions relating to your own lives; point out others in your circle that have broken from a non-working model and succeeded in a new endeavor. Talk about how sometimes doing something new seems scary, but once you have started, gets less so. Point out the planning that Whinny did and help your youngster understand that things don’t just magically happen – having a plan in place is key to many successes.

Whinny Learns to Earn is the story of how Whinny overcomes the obstacles and challenges inherit in becoming a real police horse. Often young people believe that getting their education and landing that first job offer or starting that first business is all it takes and are surprised at how much they yet have to learn about doing the job or running their business.

When you read this fable to your youngster, take the time to ask her penetrating questions relating to your own lives; tell your child the challenges and opportunities you encountered on your path up the career ladder. Talk about how lifetime learning can benefit him or her both financially and spiritually. Point out the surprises that Whinny encountered and show how she overcame her fears and learned what was needed to get the job done.

Whinny Starts Work

Whinny Starts Work is the third story in the series. In it, Whinny has finished training to become a police mount but then discovers that there is so much more to learn than what was taught in school

When you read this fable to your youngster, take the time to ask her penetrating questions relating to your own lives; mention your own experience in finding out that you didn’t learn everything in school. Ask your child if there was a time that they learned something outside of school. Talk about how tired Whinny got of learning new things all the time, but then how proud she was when she put that learning to use.
