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.

Easy to understand!

I gave this book to my son who wanted to share it with his young kids under 10. The basics are easy to understand and the drawings made it fun. This is a great starting book for anyone with an interest in investing in the stock market.

Be helpful for kids and adults too.

I would encourage middle school teachers to teach finance, budgeting, investing. Using this book would be helpful for kids and adults too.

Enjoyed the book a lot!

My 10year old and I listen to this book together. We listen to a chapter a day and would have really good conversations about them. He enjoyed the book a lot and looked forward to each day.

Financial discipline.

I bought this book to begin teaching financial concepts to younger family members. One big issue in this great country is that kids are growing up without ever learning about economics and financial discipline.

A basic knowledge of money.

I needed to listen to this book before I gave it to my grandchildren. I learned a lot myself. It was easy to understand. Every preteen and teen needs to have a basic knowledge of money.

A deeper level if needed.

This little book is great for covering the basics of finance for kids. Simple language, yet the concepts that are introduced are ones that can spark further interest and learning at a deeper level if needed.

I didn't find it useful

Scattered, bullet point, infomercial kind of material, that in my opinion provided low to no value information.

My investment advisor is talking about.

This book is suitable for mature adults as well as for youngsters. It presents the basics in a clear, concise, amusing way. After many years of feeling confused and inadequate, I now feel able to understand what my investment advisor is talking about.

Well explained!

Growing Money is a book that makes this confusing subject more interesting to kids. Well explained for kids ages 9-12, it's also appropriate for much older kids.

I bought one for me!

I purchased this guide for my 10-year-old cousin and my two under 11 great-nephews. Naturally, I leafed through it first. THEN I listen to it. And while this is a wonderful guide for kids about investing, I bought one for me!

This book is great!

This book is great! It explains everything my son needs to know without making it complicated! My son likes to listen to this book (he’s 14). I would recommend to anyone trying to teach a pre-teen/teen how to do finances.

Let's face it.

This book is VERY easy to understand and gets right to the point. Let's face it. Finance is not a fun subject.
