More than Enough: A free, multi-language children's picture book about saving

accreditation

More than Enough is a story about a young squirrel who sets out with her mother one autumn morning to collect acorns.

It is simple a story about acorns and why our squirrel family collects them – to eat, to enjoy, to share, to save and to grow for the years to come.

But the book also delivers a strong message: about investing that explores concepts such as time, saving, income generation, compounding, diversification, risk, patience and investing for the long term.

More Than Enough has been translated into three languages and is now available in isiXhosa, isiZulu, Afrikaans and English. 

The first in a series in the theme of saving, the short story is authored by communications manager Christina Castle of Foord Asset Management, and beautifully illustrated by Carla Kreuser. 

"These are the basic investment principles that we drive at Foord," says Castle. "If you understand and embrace these principles from an early age, you can only be set on the path to successful investing."
