About Tuttle Twins

How do you describe economics to a 7-year-old? Should your preteen care about the government? Are your kids learning about the free market in class? Parents have been at the mercy of professional curriculum developers for too long to instruct their children. History is watered down, fundamental principles omitted altogether, and time and attention given to things of lesser importance. Freedom-loving parents have long been left alone to shoulder the burden of educating their children and passing down a love of liberty. While many books teach these ideas to adults, there has been a profound void in the children’s literature market. The Tuttle Twins series closes the gap, helping parents convey the principles of freedom to their kids in a fun way. Each book in this series focuses on a different aspect of the principles of a free society: free markets, competition, individual rights, the non-aggression principle, personal responsibility, protectionism, and a variety of other issues—all boiled down to core concepts that children of different ages can quickly grasp.

About the Author
Connor Boyack is the founder and president of Libertas Institute, a free-market think tank. Connor’s leadership has led to dozens of legislative victories spanning a wide range of areas such as privacy, government transparency, property rights, entrepreneurship, education, personal freedom, and more.

About the Illustrator
Elijah Stanfield is the owner of Red House Motion Imaging, a media production company in Washington. A longtime student of Austrian economics, history, and classical liberal philosophy, Elijah has dedicated much of his time and energy to promoting the ideas of free markets and individual liberty.

“By leading me to this place of you know I was a great Christian I’ve served in church I did children’s ministry I was very involved my whole life years old, and I feel like I love people like I will I love like Jesus.

“Throw angry traumatized kids into the mix, and I realize I was a pretty miserable person. I lost my temper. I had days that I was just done. I didn’t want to do it anymore. I didn’t want the millions of piles of laundry and the dinner preparation for nine people, nine children living in my house at the time.

“I now cherish the times in my life where I feel the pain of being chiseled by God because I know that it’s the outcome is going to be way better than I ever could of imagined.”

“Walking through this hard, hard time learning to love by Jesus, I have story after story of times where God revealed himself to me through these children and teaching me to be more like them.”

“When you have those children in your home and raising your children and it’s hard right is really hard and I think those hard times prepared you for the hard that he has you in now and I think he gives you those moments the glimmers of hope to know that he is faithful to know that he is with you.”

Missy expressed the importance of being both a hearer and doer of the the word.
