Mama Says, “Money Doesn’t Grow on Trees!”
Globe Newswire reports that Dr. Iris Mack’s mathematics edutainment book is “turning heads across the country in a response similar to the widely promoted ‘Hooked on Phonics,’ that improved children’s reading skills.” Her unique approach to math became one of Xlibris/Random House Publisher’s top children’s picture book royalty earners.
If there is one word that sums up our recent economic woes, it is INTEREST… There’s interest on credit card balances, student loans, car loans, home mortgages, corporate borrowings and most prominently, on state and national debt. But there is surprisingly little interest in this interest. We all pay it. But not many of us really understand how it works.
Dr. Iris Mack has filled the gap – and for young consumers. Her financial literacy book “Mama Says Money Doesn’t Grow on Trees!” is focused on teaching students that math can be fun and key to understanding money and interest. In today’s world of subprime mortgage crises, derivatives, bankruptcies, massive credit card debt and predatory lending, Dr. Mack’s book is more relevant than ever.
