Junior’s Adventures Books, by Dave Ramsey, are so much fun and all of my kids enjoy them, especially Josh. Just the other day I found him all snuggled up on the couch, with one book in his hands and the rest of the set scattered around him… so cute! Even my younger two love to browse through and look at the colorful pictures.

My older three, however, have learned a few valuable lessons from Junior’s Adventures; lessons they have actually begun to put in to practice. Lessons about saving money, giving to others, and budgeting – all told in story form, on a level they understand fully.

The complete set of Junior’s Adventures contains the following books ::

· The Super Red Racer (Work)
· Careless at the Carnival (Spending)
· The Big Birthday Surprise (Giving)
· My Fantastic Fieldtrip (Saving)
· A Special Thank You (Integrity)
· Battle of the Chores (Debt)

I have very excited to tell you that today’s giveaway is a set of these fabulous books. Your kiddos will love them!

Here’s what you must do to enter:

  • Leave me a comment, by 12 noon (pst) on December 24th, telling me which of the above books would be the most appropriate lesson for a little person in your life. Does your little guy struggle with spending or have a hard time saving? I’d love to know why you’d like to win this set.

For additional entries, you may:

  • Link to this giveaway on your blog and/or Facebook wall. Be sure you leave me a separate comment for each link.
  • Tweet about this giveaway and include a link, using the hashtag #D2Dgvwy, as many times as you’d like before noon tomorrow, and leave me a separate comment for each tweet.

One winner will be selected at random, and will be emailed. Winner will then have 24 hours to respond before forfeiting their prize.

I think that The Super Red Racer book would fit us best. My daughter is young, so now is the time for her to learn about the value of work!

Lynda December 23, 2009 at 10:15 am

I’d like the A Special Thank You (Integrity) for my nephew as he is starting to learn having to be responsible for his actions and words.

Sara December 23, 2009 at 10:55 am

I think my little one would like A Special Thank You.

Lareina December 23, 2009 at 11:20 am

I like the Big Birthday Surprise. My daughters birthday was yesterday and I think this would be a great book for her to read and learn from.

Carrie December 23, 2009 at 11:51 am

It would be good for my little guy to read the story on spending…

Kimberly/Mom in the City December 23, 2009 at 11:51 am

We are focusing on giving, so The Big Birthday Surprise would be great.

Rhonda December 23, 2009 at 11:55 am

I think I’d like “A Special Thank You” most right now. It’s so hard for kids to always make good choices with all the evil that is tempting them daily. I think this would be a great tool for instilling good values.

julie December 23, 2009 at 12:05 pm

the super red racer about work and teaching to my kids

Tanna @ Complete Organizing Solutions December 23, 2009 at 12:15 pm

Saving! Trying to teach my son about the things he could save for rather than just spending money as soon as he gets it! He is a reader so he loves to buy books. We go to the library on a regular basis and told him he could read all the books he wants for free there and save his money for something he might want in the future. He likes the idea of one day being able to buy his own netbook. I never had the willpower to save when I was younger wish I would have had these books then!

Michele December 23, 2009 at 12:43 pm

The one about giving would be perfect, since that’s what we’re focusing on right now. Thanks for the opportunity! Merry Christmas!!

Ann F. December 23, 2009 at 1:43 pm

I’d really love to win these books for my daughter. We have been having conversations about money, charity etc. She seems to have a hard time recently with giving to charity so I think she could really benefit from The Big Birthday Surprise (Giving)

Miss Spoken December 23, 2009 at 3:23 pm

Battle of the Chores for my son. He’s more of a delegator.

Daniel M December 23, 2009 at 3:41 pm

probably careless at the carnival, nobody i know seems knows the word budget, never mind what it means – for example my bro & sis (who live together) made my parents pay for plowing snow off their driveway yet funny how they could afford to go see Avatar then out to dinner that night… disgraceful, have they no conscience?

cwaltz December 23, 2009 at 3:59 pm

My two older kids are pretty good about budgeting. My third child is a disaster. He spends it as fast as he can make it. So I could see Saving(My Fantastic Field Trip) as a lesson that he could benefit from. I think we got one of these books with a Chik Fil A meal once.

Stephanie V December 23, 2009 at 4:03 pm

A special thank you. My little guy is 2 so learning his please and thank yous so perfect. Other lessons coming soon.

I think The Super Red Racer (Work) would be the best for my daughter right now. She has a difficult time understanding that she needs to do a little work around here too. I would love to win these because she is a little reader and would curl up with them. I know she would enjoy reading them.

Inna December 23, 2009 at 4:49 pm

Super Red Racer would be great for my little guys :)

debra December 23, 2009 at 5:13 pm

My little one is just 2 , so no issues yet. But this looks like a great resource for the future!

Joyce December 23, 2009 at 5:13 pm

We get so many gifts from family for my daughter, I think The Big Birthday Surprise would be good to have.

Joyce December 23, 2009 at 5:14 pm
Pat December 23, 2009 at 5:23 pm

Careless at the Carnival (Spending) would be perfect for my granddaughter. She could learn more about spending in a language she would understand.

Paula S December 23, 2009 at 6:03 pm

The Big Birthday Surprise to teach my daughter the joys of giving.

Diane Baum December 23, 2009 at 6:44 pm

I would like Careless at the Carnival-Thank you

Elizabeth December 23, 2009 at 6:45 pm

The Big Birthday Surprise for my son because everyone is always overdoing the toy gifts and idea of gifts and emphasizing materialism, and I hate it.

susan varney December 23, 2009 at 6:45 pm
sandy December 23, 2009 at 7:07 pm

A Special Thank You (Integrity) its something personal but this one hits home

Ed Nemmers December 23, 2009 at 7:28 pm

“A Special Thank You”; they have a hard time with Appeciations!

Nanette Olson December 23, 2009 at 7:36 pm

The The Super Red Racer would be great for teaching my little one to work. I think it is very important that children learn the value of work early.

Jen December 23, 2009 at 8:24 pm

I’d like “The Big Birthday Surprise” because my little boy has a hard time giving and sharing things with others. He thinks everything is his!

Carrie December 23, 2009 at 8:32 pm
Sarah B. December 23, 2009 at 9:47 pm

A special Thank you would be good for my 3 year old son. He is really kind hearted, however, he still needs help with learning about integrity. this would be a good book for him.

Amy Delong December 23, 2009 at 9:48 pm

the battle of the chores would be great for my son!

Reginald S December 23, 2009 at 11:40 pm

A Special Thank You would show my kids that finders is not always keepers.

Rebecca O December 24, 2009 at 12:08 am

A Special Thankyou! He doesn’t say thank you yet….but I know that it is not because he isn’t thankful….it’s just because he can’t say the words yet!
Thanks for the chance!

Kerrie Mayans December 24, 2009 at 12:08 am

I didn’t know these books existed but I think the battle of the chores would be good for my daughters! They dont get the concept of debt and paying it back at all and I would like them to gain a better understanding of it.

Tiffany December 24, 2009 at 12:22 am

I am intrigued by the Super Red Racer one about work – It looks like it would be appropriate for both of my boys! It would be really great to have all of them!

Bambi M December 24, 2009 at 12:49 am

My Fantastic Fieldtrip would be perfect for my niece, she still doesn’t understand the concept of saving money!

Linda B December 24, 2009 at 1:05 am

My grandson could use My Fantastic Fieldtrip. He has an interesting concept when it comes to money

Gianna December 24, 2009 at 2:09 am

Battle of the Chores.. sounds like a must read for everyone in the family!

Sheila Hickmon December 24, 2009 at 2:26 am

My Fantastic Fieldtrip (Saving) would apply to my daughter, she has a rough time saving!
Thanks!

dawn December 24, 2009 at 5:39 am

Jessica December 24, 2009 at 6:32 am

My favorite is The big Birthday Surprise (Giving). I would chose that one as a favorite for my son because soemtimes I need to empahasize the importance of giving to others. It is a great lesson to teach especially during the Holidays. i am interested in these books becuase they offer some valuable lessons and I enjoy reading with my kids daily.

Jessica December 24, 2009 at 6:44 am
Kristi C December 24, 2009 at 7:00 am

The Big Birthday Suprise would be good for my little guy because he is having a hard time sharing with others.

Tari Lawson December 24, 2009 at 7:08 am

Out of all of them, Spending would probably be the most appropriate for my son. I think it is extremely important that kids learn the value of money early on.

Gloria December 24, 2009 at 8:44 am

Careless at the Carnival (Spending) would be appropriate for my niece. She needs to learn a little about spending so much.

My Fantastic Fieldtrip sounds very interesting! I would like to win this set because it would make a great gift for my friend.

Roger Deming December 24, 2009 at 9:11 am

these would be great for my school kids.

nancy l. December 24, 2009 at 9:39 am

Hmmmm… tough choice since I think all of these ideas are so very important to teach at a young age. I’m thinking the Careless at the Carnival book. My 5 year old thinks I should buy him a toy every time I go to the store right now. Of course I don’t, but he tries anyway. I’d love to share these books with him and my 4 year old cousin that I babysit on a regular basis. Thanks for the chance to win this awesome set!!

amie December 24, 2009 at 10:34 am

My Fantastic Fieldtrip would be the best for my son. He needs to learn to save money instead of spending it as soon as he gets it. Thanks!

Heather December 24, 2009 at 10:41 am

Careless at the Carnival to teach my nephew not to spend all his money at once.

Susan Smith December 24, 2009 at 11:37 am

Careless at the Carnival because my daughter tends to spend money if she has it.

Kelly Ann T. December 24, 2009 at 11:40 am

The Big Birthday Surprise would be helpful for Holt who does not always want to share or give. Thank you

Tim Hughes December 24, 2009 at 11:41 am

My Fantastic Fieldtrip would be the best for my little guy. When he gets money, he wants to head straight to the store.

Tim Hughes December 24, 2009 at 11:43 am
Summer D December 24, 2009 at 12:30 pm

The Big Birthday Surprise would be a great one so my little guy learns how to share.

Kelley December 24, 2009 at 12:36 pm

I think they are all really good lessons; but right now I think the lesson on giving would be great.

Thanks!

kathy pease December 24, 2009 at 12:51 pm
