Do You Have a Plan? Financial Foundations is an educational book by Tammy Johnson and Janice Blaine. The book is for children and shows them how they can achieve their goals with the aid of a financial plan, and how to budget wisely. Children are encouraged to create their budgets with a methodical approach using the aid of six jars, each labelled Financial Freedom, Long Term Savings, Education, Gifts, Charity and Play. The meaning of these terms and reasons why it is important to donate to charity, while saving for goals, are given. Equal portions of a child’s allowance should go into these jars. More jars can be added or labels substituted according to the children’s needs. There are also two sections called Tammy’s Tips and Questions that will assist in making the right decisions concerning investments.

Do You Have a Plan? Financial Foundations is a terrific financial management guide for children by Tammy Johnson and Janice Blaine. Teaching a child to save for his or her goals will make them more responsible, while appreciating the value of money. The content is an interesting, easy to understand format that educates children about savings accounts, term deposits, collectibles such as stamps, coins, antiques and art. They can invest their money or save for a toy or gift, and the authors explain why contributing regularly into these jars will eventually pay off in the future. Although the book is mainly for children, adults will find it informative as well as encouraging when reading.
