Publisher's Summary

Kids will always be kids. They want to play, run to the fields, watch their favorite cartoons, and do fun stuff. But most of all...they are curious. They love to ask many questions of how and why things happen. So why not take the opportunity to tell them about financial literacy? 

Adults are afraid if they teach so much to a kid at a young age, they will not get their interest. But kids are developing mentally and are having interesting thoughts. Give them lessons about a business they can start, and let them do some enterprising and investment. You could even teach them about the rich and poor mindset. 

Eventually, when they became teens and grown-ups, they will earn their own money, and they might even dream to be an entrepreneur and start a business. 

Remember that teaching them while they are young can make a great impact while they are growing. Share with them the steps and takeaways to reach success. Studies show the earlier the children were introduced to money and saving, the more likely they will be good at budgeting when they grow up.

My first steps towards financial independence.

It persuades kids to become healthier because the book outlined what cigarette smoking can do to a person's wallet. As if cigarette smoking isn't already bad enough. I also found the worksheets in the book extremely helpful, and I will continue to use them as guides as I take my first steps towards financial independence.

I thought this was an excellent book for kids.

I thought this was an excellent book for Kids. It not only shows them how to intelligently invest, but it also provides funny examples of what not to do in the market.

This is an excellent first book!

This is an excellent first book to give a kid who is not sure about investing as a good place to put his or her money. It is well explained with kids in mind and has tons of real-world examples to which kids can relate. It is a good start to get teens exciting about making their money work for them. I got it for my 9-year-old nephew who was skeptical but is on board with taking control of his own financial future.

These are the fundamentals!

This book is great. I honestly wish this was required reading for every adult. It is a wonderful introduction to financial literacy for kids and teens. These are the fundamentals that, when introduced at a young age, can help kids see budgeting, saving, and investing as part of life versus an ominous and overwhelming task.

My girls finally finished the book.

My girls finally finished the book last weekend and they loved it. It is very informative and easy to understand for both of them. Most beneficial for my 16-year-old since she will go to college in 2 years. She summarizes it for me, starts early is the key.

Wonderful reference for children

This is the kind of information every young person ought to learn before they grow to adulthood. Good money management is not difficult, but it is not taught to kids any more. Schools should teach this stuff too.

Easy way of teaching kids how to save

This is THE handbook on teaching your kids how to win with money. Growing up I did not know anything about money, until I started listening to this audiobook. This will absolutely change this -and the next- generation and how they handle money.

Very Educational

I wanted this book to give to each of our children and hope that they find the time to read it before their children are grown. While it may be too late for your adult kids (maybe not), it can help them with money matters for their own children. Some common sense and some good advice.
