Sesame Street teaches your kids about money

Apr 13, 2011 | | Comments Comments Off

I don’t suffer from envy too often–fortunately–but right now I’m riddled with it.

Why? Because fellow personal finance writer Beth Kobliner, author of the excellent book “Get a Financial Life,” got face time with Elmo. And she confesses she was putty in the little red guy’s hands.

The two–along with rapper Common–are featured in a new video that teaches kids about money. Check it out now at sesamestreet.org/save, where you’ll also find some cool printables: an activity book, labels so you can set up a three-jar “spend, save and share” system, and play money.

Please share the site with any parents you know.
