Align CU Designs Children's Book to Help Teach Financial LIteracy

Lowell, MA, October 22, 2018 – Align Credit Union has developed a new children’s book to help teach the basics of financial literacy to children ages three to five years old. The book entitled “A Savings Account Saves the Day” follows James and his best friend Pearl on their adventures to keep their money safe after James’ piggy bank breaks. The book was written by Align’s #NextGen group and illustrated by Robert E. Bradley, a Framingham State University senior who will be receiving his bachelor’s degree in Studio Art with a concentration in Illustration in May 2019.

The book was unveiled at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lowell on October 18th to celebrate International Credit Union Day. Eleven second- and third-grade students were treated to a book reading and given goodie bags with a copy of the new book, coloring supplies, a $10 Amazon gift card to buy a book of their choice and more.

Align’s new book will be available for a $5 donation at all Align branches. All donations will be given to “Raising a Reader Massachusetts,” a statewide organization focused on helping families develop home reading routines that build the foundation for a good education.

“At Align, we’re focused on providing our Members with financial tools and expert guidance,” said Align President Ken Del Rossi. “I’m extremely proud of our #NextGen group for writing this special book that will help our youngest Members succeed as they grow.”
