This article is in collaboration with Buck Academy and their book about first bank accounts.
BUCK Academy’s mission is to “help parents to educate children about personal finance”, and to encourage them to start their first bank account. Entrepreneurial husband and wife team Dustin and Febyolla Goss created BUCK Academy because they wanted to teach their son about money but could not find any simple resources.
Buck Academy publishes books focused on personal finances for youth. Mr. Goss authors the books, and his wife, Feboyolla, illustrates them. Currently, BUCK Academy offers four books. The Homeschool Review Crew received BUCK, FIRST BANK ACCOUNT to review this time.
In the book a personification of a friendly dollar bill, walks through the steps necessary to open a bank account. Buck tells readers that having a bank account is “a privilege and necessary responsibility.“
