Talking to children about money can be challenging. Parents often wonder where to start with such a complex topic, but teaching good, life-long money skills is one of the most important things we can do with our children. My kids may be older, but I still struggle to help them understand the value of a dollar and the importance of not blowing their money just because they have some!

Eulalie Scanduizzi, founder of Moonjar, has written two children’s books to get the conversation started and I love the fun and whimsical way she goes about Helping Kids Learn About Money.

How The Moonjar Was Made chronicles Noom and Raj – a dreamer and a thinker – who work together to learn about the three S’s: Saving, Spending and Sharing.


The knowledge they gain leads them to create the Moonjar Moneybox and they make their dreams possible. Children delight in reading the book and being hands-on with the Classic Moonjar Moneybox as they use their own money and divide it up among the Save, Spend and Share sections.


The story behind how the metal body of the Moonjar came to be is thoroughly entertaining and I could totally see an inventive child coming to this conclusion! The coin slots are big enough for international coinage and even for folded dollar bills.

Moonjar (moon-jar)

Moon: To shoot for the moon”; to go after dreams and goals.

Jar: Following an ancient custom where wishes or dreams are written down and placed in a special jar for future celebration!

Moon+Jar= Moonjar!


In ‘Noom & Raj Start a Business: The ABC’s of Money,’ they become business partners and open up a lemonade stand. In this book, children will learn the ABC’s of money and finance as they travel with the characters on a journey filled with unexpected adventures. Every book comes with a Moonjar Moneybox tucked inside! For more information about Moonjar, go to
