Great Surprise! Nov. 26 2006
By Lori Ruegsegger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought this as a baby shower gift for a friend whose boy baby name is Brock. I wasn't thinking too much of it from what I saw, but when I got it I was pleasantly surprised. It is a great rhyming tale of two twins, and how one saves while the other spends. Really cute! I especially liked how the last two pages give a comparison of how money compounds and gives advice to kids on how to save. As a parent and a teacher, I highly recommend this book to share with children to teach monetary values!

Rutgers University Project on Economics and Children Nov. 5 2008
By Yana V. Rodgers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Twin brothers Rock and Brock had adopted very different lifestyle habits, with Rock favoring a healthy and disciplined approach, while Brock preferred junk food and less structure. However, when it came to money, Rock could not resist spending every dime that came his way on new toys and gizmos, while Brock had an uncanny ability to save. Both brothers learned an important lesson when their grandpa gave them a dollar and said that for the next ten weeks, he would double the total that each brother was able to save. While Rock squandered his money, Brock's money grew to a crateful of cash.

With its bright, humorous illustrations, this important book adds some fun to the business of saving money. The straightforward story line teaches younger children how money can grow through a savings plan, while the notes in the back offer more sophisticated explanations of banking and compound interest. The author, one of the most influential women in the world of finance, successfully translates some economic fundamentals into a story that children will appreciate and enjoy.

"I want" vs. I need" March 29 2009
By Grandma Sue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought 3 copies of this book one for each household of grandchildren ages 3-6. I thought the lesson of saving and spending were well illustrated in colors and text. I don't know if the grandchildren understood the charts at the back of the book but they, especially the 6 year-olds, grasped the lesson of spending foolishly versus spending wisely and saving.

Rock, Brock and the Savings Shock Rocks! April 2 2009
By Pamela Saputo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is very entertaining and very educational at the same time. My five year old daughter loves it! She wants me to read it to her over and over again. It also encouraged her to save whatever money she gets or finds.

Great book for teaching financial basics! Oct. 18 2011
By SuperMOM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a 20 year financial services veteran, I have a passion for teaching the next generation basic concepts about money. I have seen far too many adults who lack the skills needed to make good financial decisions (I really shouldn't complain as this is how I earn a living). Many of them tell me that if they had learned the basics of needs vs wants, setting goals, budgeting etc. at an early age, they could have avoided many costly mistakes.
This book provides a great opportunity to discuss these basics with elementary age children in a fun and sing-song way. The story's rhyming really catches and keeps the attention of the reader(s).

I use this book in my financial literacy workshops that I provide for Kindergartners through 3rd/4th grade and the kids love it! They always want to see the book after class and the parents always ask me where I bought it.

I highly recommend this for any educator, parent or grandparent (although I do recommend additional discussions and worksheets to drive the concepts home).
