In Rohan and Nyra and Big Sister’s Bet, by Anthony C. Delauney, Rohan’s big sister Nyra teaches him an important lesson about finances. Nyra bets Rohan that she will give him a dollar every time he catches the football she throws to him, but she has one condition—if he drops the ball, he loses all the money. Rohan begins to catch the ball again and again. With each catch, he imagines the treasures and trinkets he can buy with the money he is earning. But should he stop catching the ball or keep going? Is it worth the risk of dropping it and losing all the money he has built up for himself?
Rohan and Nyra and Big Sister’s Bet is the third book in the Owning the Dash Kids’ Book financial series. Like in the story, Anthony C. Delauney always gives an example of an activity that parents can copy at home, or he provides one in the book. And once again, he has done an excellent job of telling a semi-long story in a rhyming fashion. The images are also captivating, bright, and colorful. The story teaches children a valuable lesson about gambling and taking risks. He has demonstrated very well how sometimes taking a risk can be a financial investment and an emotional one, too! When you start building up hopes and expectations for something you have no guarantee of getting, it can be a huge disappointment when you don’t get what you were expecting. Sometimes, it just isn’t worth the risk. Overall, Rohan and Nyra and Big Sister’s Bet is an entertaining story that teaches kids a very important lesson.
