Free comic books from Federal Reserve

The Federal Reserve teaches kids about financial matters via comic books. You can order up to 35 copies of each title for free. There are 12 titles to choose from such as the Story of Banks, the Story of Money, A Penny Saved, and the Story of Inflation. Each comic is 24 pages. According to a Wall Street Journal article by Daniel Akst, the Fed "distributed 866,00 free copies" in 2006; the Once Upon a Dime title is the most popular. Enjoy!

Thank you for your note. I received my order from the Bank - and the quality of the books are very good! Can't believe the books were free!

Best, Kyra
