ABOUT THE BOOK

Reach For The Stars is a children’s picture book meant to introduce young children to basic financial concepts. It also delivers a positive and uplifting message, empowering children to speak up about their ideas and inspiring them to take action. 

This is a story about Mimi, a young girl who finds a way to earn and save money to make a purchase for something she wants. She turns a small idea into a successful business. In the process, she employs her younger brother, grows her business, makes an investment, multiplies her income, and learns to manage her finances with creative planning. She also learns the importance of giving to others. Mimi’s journey empowers kids to think big and recognize that anything is possible.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Michele is a physician, wife, mother, and investor. Reach For The Stars was written out of a desire to introduce her own kids to the basics of financial literacy, lessons that she didn't learn until much later in life. When looking for financial books for her children, there were not many options for the younger age range. As a parent, she believes that teaching children about making wise financial decisions and investing in their financial future should be an essential part of early education. In addition to introducing basic financial concepts, this story is meant to build confidence and encourage our children to think BIG! Her hope is that this book will present basic concepts that will plant a seed for further learning and interest.
