Continuing her series from the National Religious Broadcast Media event, host of By his Grace podcast Misty Phillip sat down with Daniel Harmon to discuss the Tuttle Twins. The Tuttle Twins is a successful books series that teaches kids economic principles. The book based on The Law by Frederic Bastait was a HUGE success. Daniel and the author Connor Boyack are friends and Daniel wanted to turn the books into an animation series. The Harmon Brothers have revolutionized the film industry, and are providing amazing family-friendly content.

“It is all about the ideas.”
“Disagree doesn’t mean enemy.”

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.
