the best ways to teach your kids all about money
is with books. These days there are plenty of
great books out there to help your kids learn about
money the right way. These are the ones I recommend,
Kids Money Book - Written by Neale Godfrey, who
is an expert on kids and money, this book has great
illustrations. I would say that this book is geared
to kids under 10. The pictures and drawings are
detailed, thought provoking and will definitely hold
your child's attention. There are trivia tidbits
throughout the books as she covers the history of
money, saving, spending, earning and banking.
Kids Guide to Money: Earning It, Saving It, Spending
It, Growing It, Sharing It - This is geared for
kids, probably aged 9 - 12. Steve Otfinoski promotes
solid financial values, such as the rewards of work,
finding a job, or starting a business. The focus in
this book is geared towards starting a business
for kids. This is a well written book that will
open up your child's creative mind for ways to make
and grow their money!
Totally Awesome Money Book for Kids - Ths book
is written by a lawyer and radio host and her son
and has been featured on Good Morning America and
Oprah. It also was nominated by the American Library
Association as the"Best Book for Young Adults".
Geared towards 10-17 year old kids, it provides a
great overview of investment principles and management
areas such as budgeting, saving, credit card debt,
taxes and not to be forgotten...financial goals! Financial
concepts that sound complicated are explained in a
clear, friendly way.
will hold your children's interest, spark their imagination
and teach them financial concepts and values that
will last a lifetime. Money books for kids are
just as important as their history, math and English
books they get from their classrooms. I hope you and
your kids enjoy these books as much as I have!
