Description


Did you ever wonder if there wonder if there were some practical things you weren't taught, useful things that would help you in your everyday life?

Follow Joe, our stick figure friend, as he "graduates" into the real world and stumbles across some of these lessons.

How do you open a bank account?  What is a credit card?  How do I file my taxes?  Should I rent or buy a home?  How am I going to get the things I want?  What is gratitude?

With the help of some resources on each page (QR code), a trip to the shoe store and a visit to Gramps, the reader and Joe get some answers on this somewhat humorous journey.
