Sammy is determined to make a big dream come true. He wants to ride the world’s first outer space rollercoaster. Can he earn and save enough money to do it?
Sammy’s Big Dream makes it easy to ignite kids’ imaginations and inspire their dreams. It’s an entertaining and effective resource to teach and talk to kids about money and more. The story acts as a catalyst for discussion on at least 16 different topics and invites the question, ‘What’s your big dream?” Dreams are important. Dreams provide purpose. Purpose provides direction. Direction shapes behavior and thinking. Dreams also have the power to provide strength to delay gratification.
