About The Book

Holland has her heart set on getting her ears pierced. But how will she pay for it?

When Holland asks if she can get her ears pierced, she decides to use the money in her savings account to pay for it. But she’s disappointed when she sees the balance. How will she earn the rest of the money she needs?

Thankfully, her mom comes to the rescue: she’ll teach Holland how to grow her money by investing!

Children who join Holland and her younger sister, London, on their adventure will learn about the basics of investing, especially in stocks, and increase their financial vocabulary. And who knows? Maybe the adults reading this book will learn a thing or two as well!

Financial literacy and learning to invest are two keys to economic freedom. With Braving Our Savings, you can give the children in your life a gift that is truly a worthy investment.
