We'd like to start this page with a
video from our friend Nancy Carlson. Over the years,
Nancy & Expedition CU have partnered on many readings in schools around the Twin-Cities.
The readings have always contained an element of Financial Literacy with a reading of “Start
Saving Henry” and a discussion of saving. Nancy agreed to do a virtual reading and art lesson
for Expedition CU to share.
Nancy Carlson is a Minnesota local Author &
Illustratorof more than 60 published children’s books. Her books all
contain positive messages that gently remind children what is right and how to be kind.
Thank you, Nancy, for your continued support.
