The Tuttle Twins:
by Connor Boyack
Each year, hundreds of millions of children are spoon-fed false history, bad economics, and logical fallacies. Your child is not immune. Well meaning parents have long desired a way to inoculate their children against this trend to help them really grasp the importance of freedom and free markets—the pillars of good government that made America great.
These parents—just like you—have had nowhere to turn, and no literature to provide their child… until now!
The solution is here: The Tuttle Twins books. There is no alternative to the Tuttle Twins series; our books fill a huge void in the market for children's literature that exposes young readers to the foundational principles of freedom.
