"The Richest Town in the World" is a storybook App for 3 to 10 year olds that aims to train children in financial literacy using whimsical characters with beautiful illustrations. This App is the first in a series from Big Heart Bankers whose mission is to make financial literacy training materials available to every child in the US in the next decade. This version is based on the first book in the series - The Tales of Pennington. This story will take your children on a journey through the town of Pennington - the Richest Town in the World. There they meet Gertie McLoon the bank teller, Fritter O Frie the big spender, and Skitter BNutty, the squirrel who saves every nut. They also meet Paddy Pig, the cobbler who saves the town from financial disaster through his sensible application of the motto - Give, Save, and Spend Wisely.
The App includes "easter eggs" for your child to discover by touching characters in the story. The App can be read like a book or the child can choose to have the book read to them by one of the characters in the book or to record themselves or you in your own voice providing financial wisdom for your child or grandchild.
