Gabrielle Pratt’s new book, Smart Value - The Packers Story was written to encourage young people how to manage the funds they earn. The story traces the work experience of four Junior High School students Alan, Tevin, Ron and Sonya who pack groceries at their neighbourhood food-store. They are guided by the young store manager, Mr Ross who gives them tips on saving money using simple four letter words. Over a period of several weeks he discusses the key points for the students to practice. He also gives them a challenge to enter just in time for Christmas.
“I hope the young people who take the time to read the book and go through the simple exercises at the end would cultivate money management skills that would help them in life,” declares the author. Imagine how many problems can be avoided when a person knows how to handle money responsibly.
The book is available as a paperback and e-book.
