The Missing Money- Okeoma Moronu Schreiner

The Missing Money is the first picture book in a new series aimed at inspiring young children to learn basic financial terms in a fun and age-appropriate way. It is a wonderful conversation starter about money, how a bank works and why we should save our money.

I love the page that shows all the basic banking terms like: ATM, Money, Debit Card, Bank, Interest, etc….


The girls and I had such a great conversation about money and how we put most of the money they receive from birthdays and special occasions in their savings account but, I always allow them to have a small amount of money in their wallets to spend on whatever they like. 


About the book:

“The book follows Kai, a young boy on his way to the bank to deposit his newly earned money. While at the bank, a big scary ATM machine eats all of his money! Kai struggles to understand where his money went and creates an elaborate plan to get it back.”

Author Okeoma Moronu Schreiner partnered with illustrator Sandhya Prahbat to create this colorfully illustrated children’s series that emphasizes the idea that you are never too young to learn about your finances.


The Missing Money (July 2019) will be the first of three books to release in the Money Monsters series, all of which are set to publish within the year. We are so excited to read this series and continue to talk about how important it is to save your money and know about your finances. 


Okeoma Moronu Schreiner is an attorney, wife, mother, and host of the nationally recognized, Happy Lawyer Project podcast. Now as an author, her goal is to guide parents in helping their children navigate the seemingly stressful wide world of money. The inspiration for her new children’s series, Money Monsters, stems from her own experience as a struggling young lawyer who had seen first-hand the difficult situations created by financial problems. Schreiner is an advocate for early education of finances and wants parents to instill comfort and confidence in their children regarding money issues.

“I believe that it’s never too early (or too late!) to introduce your little ones to money basics,” says Okeoma. “We created the Money Monsters series to bring you a fun and age-appropriate way to introduce these topics to the little ones in your life.”
