We discovered the Tuttle Twins online, subscribed, got the books for ages 5 – 11 and never looked back. When I read the books, and I’m 66, I learned things I didn’t know about how an economy works, how the free market works, and so much more! What would it be like to grow up with this information? What would it be like if school-aged children understood what’s in these books? I daresay we would have a different culture than what is current—one where an understanding of liberty is a high priority and where knowing how to maintain our liberty is paramount.
Here’s how they explain it on the website, www.tuttletwins.com:
“How do you describe economics to a 7-year-old? Should your preteen care about the government? Are your kids learning about the free market in class?
“For too long, parents have been at the mercy of professional curriculum developers to instruct their children. History is watered down, key principles omitted altogether, and time and attention given to things of lesser importance. Freedom-loving parents have long been left alone to shoulder the burden of educating their children and passing down a love of liberty.
“While there are many books to teach these ideas to adults, there has been a profound void in the children’s literature market. The Tuttle Twins series closes the gap, helping parents convey the principles of freedom to their kids in a fun way.
“Each book in this series focuses on a different aspect of the principles of a free society: free markets, competition, individual rights, the non-aggression principle, personal responsibility, protectionism, and a variety of other issues—all boiled down to core concepts that children of different ages can easily grasp.”
The only thing I would add to this is parents and teachers are going to like the books as well!
