Pearl and I are looking for classrooms to visit to share her entrepreneurial spirit by reading a story, discussing her wisdom as a business owner, and leading a hands-on activity which involves students creating their own product in teamwork fashion.
Let Pearl introduce herself:
Hi! I am Pearl. I am very creative and profitable
when it comes to finances. I take pride in owning and managing my own accessories store. My friends tell me I have a flair for entrepreneurship. I am known for my self-confidence, determination, and hard-working spirit.
Hobbies/Interests: Designing scarves, jewelry, & other accessories, swimming, and collecting rocks.
Contact me to bring Pearl and her fun-loving entrepreneur spirit and positive character traits to your classroom, library, community group, youth club, church, or child care center!
Sweet Potato Pie tells the story of a close family and its determination, creativity, and commitment through a financially difficult time during a summer drought. The family works together to make sweet potato pie to earn money for the next payment on their family farm. Mama's idea of selling sweet potato pie at the local Harvest Celebration was not only money smart but family smart!
Suggested Grades: Kindergarten to 3rd
Teacher's Guide Available
Book also includes a recipe!
Thank you to the Governor's Council on Financial Literacy for this honor. Specific information can be found on this press release.
