As a father of two and the author of the Tuttle Twins series of books, I have a strong conviction that parents need to be using these books and accompanying curriculum to supplement their children’s education.
There is a growing need for alternative educational resources that emphasize a classical liberal arts education, while also promoting principles of limited government, free markets, and individual liberty. The Tuttle Twins books and curriculum provide a much-needed solution to this need.
The Tuttle Twins books are designed to educate children about economics, government, and other core principles of freedom in an entertaining and accessible way. The stories are engaging and filled with fun characters and illustrations, making it easy for kids to understand complex concepts. Each book includes thought-provoking questions, which encourage kids to think critically about the ideas presented in the story. The accompanying curriculum provides a more in-depth look at the concepts explored in the book, with lessons and activities that help to reinforce the material and make it more meaningful for kids.
One of the reasons why I believe the Tuttle Twins are so important is because of the state of education in America today. Far too many children are being taught a political ideology that emphasizes government control and intervention, rather than individual freedom and personal responsibility. This is a major problem because it sets children on a path toward a future where they may not fully understand the value of limited government and a free society.
These book and curriculum, on the other hand, provide a counterbalance to this harmful ideology. They present the principles of freedom in a way that is both entertaining and educational, helping to instill a love for freedom and a strong sense of personal responsibility in young minds. The stories are written in a way that makes it easy for kids to understand the importance of freedom and the dangers of government overreach.
In addition to the educational benefits, there is also the social and political impact of the Tuttle Twins books. As more and more families adopt the books and curriculum into their homes, it helps to build a community of individuals who are committed to preserving the principles of freedom for future generations. This kind of community is vital for the long-term survival of a free society, as it provides a powerful network of people who can support and encourage one another in their efforts to protect and defend freedom.
Check out a few of my favorites:

The Tuttle Twins and the Miraculous Pencil

The Tuttle Twins and the Creature from Jekyll Island
Markets come to life in the third installment of the Tuttle Twins series, with Ethan and Emily exploring a farmer’s market and county fair to understand just how controlling the Creature from Jekyll Island can be.

The Tuttle Twins and the Food Truck Fiasco

Incorporating key concepts from the classic Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt, this book helps young readers learn about business, regulations, economics, protectionism, competition, and other basic market principles. Learn alongside the Tuttle Twins how government harms the economy, and what one person—or two!—can do about it.
The Tuttle Twins and the Golden Rule
What do most religions and cultures agree on?
People throughout the world strongly disagree on many things, yet there is one universal principle—a “Golden Rule” as it’s often called— upon which many people do agree: we should treat others the way we want them to treat us.
Ethan and Emily Tuttle embark on their first summer camp adventure where they learn this lesson firsthand. Competing teams turn into fighting rivals, but Chief Ron and his camp counselors help the twins and their teammates learn the dangers of aggression, revenge, and blowback—and why peace and friendship are important!
Our books and curriculum are an essential supplement to any parent’s education program. They are a fun and educational way to teach children about the importance of freedom and personal responsibility, while also providing a counterbalance to the harmful political ideologies that are so prevalent in our education system today.
