A Reindeer Story
In a November show in Lodi, grandma Stephanie brought her little angel Isabelle to the show. Little angel wanted a white cavy; grandma Stephanie taught her a lesson of choice.
Grandma Stephanie said, "If you want that white Guinea Pig, you will have to sell some of your toys to get money to buy it." Little Isabelle set up a shop, put her stuff animals and Beanie Babies on the table and wrote a sign "$1".
Many became her customers and bought her stuff animals. Little Isabelle got more than enough money to buy her white cavy. Grandma Stephanie was happy, little angel was happy, and a lesson of choice taught. The second photo shows Grandma Stephanie and little Isabelle with the precious white cavy in her arms.
Betty came home with the brown reindeer; she recounts this story to others while showing off this little reindeer. Having been a Professor of Economics for 30 years, she feels that this is an excellent example of how to teach children an early lesson in economic choices.
