How Roommates Became Savers: A book for young readers

The Society has launched a fun and educational book educating young readers on how Building Societies came to be. The book introduces them to the world of saving from an early age through the eyes of a gang of woodland animals.

About the book

‘How Roommates Became Savers’ is a rhyming children’s book following the story of four woodland friends as they learn to save so they can buy their own pad, den, nest or hollow. This book is designed to teach young readers how saving little and often can help them achieve financial goals of their own.
