Never before has there been a time when the economy has been so much a part of our daily lives. TodayÕs young investors want to know the basics of financeÑespecially how to make money grow. This complete guide explains in kid-friendly terms all about savings accounts, bonds, stocks, and even mutual funds!
Why do we need to introduce kids to traditional, conservative finance? We need to be teaching kids why we save money (to prepare for the future), why we invest (to provide capital to growing businesses), and why we are rewarded for investing (deferring consumption, taking on risk). This book is good for setting up your kid to be an accountant or low paid financial advisor, not a successful investor.

This is one of the two books that is a required reading book for our children. The school systems seem to lack an education on money and finance, so we found this book. It is a simple read...even our 10 year old was able to read it and understand the concepts. With the knowledge from this book, our kids have all gotten into the stock market and learned how to manage money and have their money, earn money.

I got this for my kids to learn about money. They easily understood the concept of savings account but were very curious about stocks and bonds. It encouraged them to add up all their coins and dollars and start saving. I liked to watch them getting so inspired to do house chores to earn money to invest. Really great book for 10-13 year olds. Talks about how to make money and also how to protect yourself from scams.
I highly recommend this book.

This book worked perfectly for my 1st-3rd graders in our economics program. Great explanation of the the basic concepts and the writing is easily understood. The students like the illustrations and I'm able to derive quite a bit of lessons from the material. 5 stars!

My 6 and 8 year old love this book. They enjoyed learning about the history of money, and also filling in the worksheets. My older son has read it at least 5 times! He enjoys being able to relate and talk to his dad about investing.

This is a good beginning book for teenage investors. Gives a lot of basic information about how stocks and bonds work, without overwhelming them with too much info

I bought this book for my 12 year old to help him gain a basic understanding of investments. I came up with a reward for when he finished reading it but in retrospect I doubt I really had to. Once he started reading it he was hooked. This book was engaging enough to keep his attention all the way to the end. There are several quizes along the way too which is nice. He could take them and then which ever ones he missed I could explain those to him.

I'm on a mission to teach my kid all the important stuff about money that he will never hear in school. This was a great start. He read this and them would ask me questions. It was a good foundation to build on giving him a basic understanding of what stocks are, mutual funds...

El libro está en inglés, así que tus hijos deberán tener cierto nivel para seguirlo. Hay algunas cosas que específicas de USA (aparte de que siempre se menciona al dólar y ni a otra moneda), pero en general todo es válido.

Lo suyo es leerlo junto con los críos o, en su defecto, que vayan ellos leyendo un capítulo y que luego pregunten lo que no hayan entendido, haciéndoles a su vez algunas preguntas de control.

Mientras que no haya nada parecido en castellano, es una buena opción.

My 8 year old read this book and took the quizzes. He's still not a wizard but hopefully it helps
