Trade in those cash register games for kids for these books. Use the Mama talking points to prep your child for their first store transaction. That first store transaction. You know, where your kid actually hands over money (perhaps their own, perhaps yours) to buy their very first item. It’s exciting! It’s nerve-wracking!
