We have this book set and read them to our 3-1/2 year-old. She’s a big fan of the “I, Pencil” adaptation. After we read the book, we watch the video of the original Leonard Read read essay here:
Then we end up watching YouTube videos about how crayons are made, where milk comes from, how they make tires, watching a printing press in action…you get the idea.
These books are great for sparking the imagination and sharing some valuable lessons with your children that they won’t get in school.
One big lesson that my daughter now knows from the “Road to Serfdom” adaptation, is that even though as individuals, we plan things for ourselves all the time, BUT that doesn’t mean that we are able to plan for others. I told here that 99% of the population doesn’t understand that important lesson.
Basically, my point is, if you have kids – get these books. They’re cheap enough to be almost impulse-buy material…and if you read them to your kids a couple of times, you will get well more value than you paid for these colorful, lesson-packed books that provide a perspective from liberty.
