Would You Like a Million Pennies?


While talking with my son the other day (he’s 4), he found a penny on the ground. I asked him, “How many pennies would you like to have?”

He said, “One hundred.”

I asked, “Would you like a million pennies?”

He said, “No, that’s too many. They can’t fit in my pocket.”

You know what, I think he’s right. Here’s a neat illustration of one million pennies.

Part of me feels like I missed the opportunity to talk to him about how he can put his money in a bank and they will hold it for him. Then explain how he can make money by doing that. After hearing his simple answer, I could only smile because it was just that…so simple. But perhaps I should take opportunities like that to introduce finance related things to him. But is 4 years old too early??
