A cheerful approach to all things financial plus playful photo collagesand colorful drawings make up this fact-filled compendium of everything kids could possibly need to know about money--and more. Neale S. Godfrey, a nationally recognized expert on kids and money, and illustrator Randy Verougstraete tell the story of money--from bartering to investing--with animated appeal. Each subject receives careful and lively attention: the history of money; earning, saving, and spending money; banking facts and bank account information; credit card explanations and warnings ("It's In-credit-ible!"); information about America's economic structure and the government's economic role; taxes; the laws of supply and demand; inflation and depression; and stocks and bonds. Fun financial trivia is interspersed throughout, and word problems and matching games complete each of the nine chapters.

Godfrey does a fine job of covering complicated concepts, successfully tying her explanations with kids' everyday experiences (for example, creating a business plan for a dog-walking service). Kids will enjoy learning about finances with this easy-to-digest format, and grown-ups may be surprised to learn a thing or two as well. This book is about as far from dull gray, boring, banking as it gets. (Ages 8 to 12) --Ericka Lutz ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Younger Kids money book
This book a little dumb but still cut. All parents out there who have 6 year olds who can read and like counting should buy this book. I like one page that shows how credit cards become money but that is pretty much it. The illustrater, Randy Verougstraete was decent but I guess it is hard to illistrate a money book

On a nicer note this is a really cute book for younger kids. My little sister loved it. It is really a matter of taste. This book had a lot of cool facts such as how tall is ten thousand dollars worth of nickles. A cute book but this book is better for 5 or 6 year olds not older.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book on money for children
(...)This book is just full of ideas, concepts, drawings, etc. all presented in a simple, colourful manner. This book would make a great gift for a child, to help them understand money concepts. The author has written some other great books on money and children, for adults to read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very educational!
The colorful pictures and easy to read diagrams make this a captivating book. Godfrey covers it all - from the history of money, government and taxes, credit and it's pitfalls to investing. Because the pictures tell so much of the story even young children will gain insights about money. This book should be a must read for all middle school students; it's a comprehensive lesson in civics that answers the questions "What are taxes?" and "How are your taxes spent?" in a way children can relate to.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great book about money for ages 7 to 107.
A great book about money. A must if you are interested in stocks, bonds, credit, ATMs, mutual funds, the history of money or money in general. For ages 7-107, making it great for school, while humorous cartoons make it fun to read. Ideas for thought, and projects for the family. Crisp, clear writing makes it easy to understand, whle Word Banks is mini glossary. Makes a great gift!

In a wise and witty manner, brothers David and Tom Gardner, founders of the multimedia investment company The Motley Fool, impart their investment strategies to the adolescent masses with The Motley Fool Investment Guide for Teens. In eight teen-friendly sections, the brothers Gardner and writing partner Selena Maranjian demystify the stock market by describing and defining mutual funds, banking practices, IRAs, and drip investing. The authors also include numerous quotes from money-savvy adolescents who detail some of their rookie market moves in an attempt to help their peers steer clear of similar mistakes. Parents will approve of the strongly worded sections on credit card debt and the costly financial and physical tolls a smoking habit takes on both wallet and health. In fact, parents would do well to pick up this investment primer for their own edification, if they find the stock market a confusing and chaotic business. Loaded with worksheets, helpful Web sites on a variety of financial subjects, a concise glossary, and a comprehensive index, this is one investment guide that both generations can and will turn to again and again.

Traditionally, teens have been known for having a hard time seeing the proverbial Big Picture. But the Gardners respond admirably to this characteristic, by constantly emphasizing the fortune teens can make in the future by investing now and reminding them that investing money is the least labor-intensive way to make more of the desirable green stuff. A perfect gift for the burgeoning Warren Buffet in your life. (Ages 12 and older) --Jennifer Hubert ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A book they will read
Although it contains some information that my daughter thought was unrealistic, like the amount she should be able to save each week, she thought the book had some great ideas. I especially liked that they didn't talk down to the teenagers yet told them about the true financial cost of smoking, the good use of credit cards, ATMS and the fiancial mistakes many people make. A good book that tells it to them straight in a format that they will read.

4-0 out of 5 stars Getting Closer to Financial Independence
I thought this was an excellent book for teenagers. It not only shows them how to intelligently invest, but it also provides funny examples of what not to do in the stock market. I think it would be an excellent asset for people in their early twenties as well because it gives a great deal of advice on money management. In college, most students are not "rolling in the dough", so why not invest what little "dough" you do have and make some money for the future. It can also persuade 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 within the book extremely helpful, and I will continue to use them as guides as I take my first steps towards financial independence.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Book for Teens Who Really Wanna Know It All
After reading the other reviews here about this book, I decided to go out and get it myself. I wanted to know everything there was about money after I've seen my parents struggle with things like credit card debt. I was very happy with the book! It teaches everything from the ever complicated stock investing, to checks and credit cards. The only thing bad about it was some of it was harder to understand at times. And that some of the topics got boring at times. But other than that, I was very pleased with the book. It taught me all I needed to know about money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent advice covering all teen money matters
This book offers intelligent and very well supported advice for teens and their money. I liked the book so much I finished it in a few days (234 pages), and I'm going to buy it for my brother for Christmas. This book offers a wealth of financial advice for teens, not just what to look for when investing stocks. It really emphasizes knowing why you are making certain moves, not just what moves to make, which is great. All in all, the book manages to teach a fairly large amount of information without bogging the reader down with financial jargon (and it has a glossary in the back anyways).

5-0 out of 5 stars great book
The Motley Fool investment guide for teens is a great book to buy not only if your a teen but also if you're in college. It teaches you how to save for your retirement. most people don't think about that until there thirtys.
I rented this book from the library and now my mom's getting it for me for Christmas so i can read it again ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This book is helpful and useful
Let me explain to everyone who says otherwise, the point of this book was NOT to make children think that stock marketing was the only way to get money. No, the book was just trying to teach children about stock marketing so they could understand it and could possibly use it no or when they get older. I think the book had great details and explained the stock market very accurately.

5-0 out of 5 stars A superior and highly recommended introductory guide
Gail Karlitz's Growing Money: A Complete Investing Guide For Kids is an exceptional investing guide in that it is written specifically to teach children (and adults!) how to make their money work for them. Covering savings in a bank, bods, stocks, and how to read the financial pages, Growing Money is a superb guide - and since it's written simply enough for a young person to learn from, it also makes excellent starter reading for adults who have never dabbled in investing before. The prose text is in large type and very straightforward, but does not talk down to the reader. Growing Money is a superior and highly recommended introductory guide, especially for the young people growing up in this brand new era of electronically transmitted investment capital.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for getting children interested in investing
Reviewed by Ted Lea, author of "When I Grow Up I'm Going to be a Millionaire (A Children's Guide to Mutual Funds)". Many adults wish they had started investing when they were younger. This book provides a good framework for children to start understanding the concepts of investing, which will serve them all through life. When your children grow up to be financially secure they can make a difference in society, hopefully by helping others or protecting natural areas. This book is easy to read and provides a great introduction.

4-0 out of 5 stars EYE OPENER

1-0 out of 5 stars Limited!
This book althoug colorful and based purely on one thought. The stock market is a vehicle, and only one vehicle, amongst the mass of options available for children to grow and secure their money. It is truly an unhelpful and wasteful book and I would not recommend this to anyone who is serious about training their children what money is really all about. Shame on this author.

4-0 out of 5 stars Ever think about where a quarter travels?
A clever look at money and where it might travel throughout its life. Mostly we follow a quarter as it gets minted, sent to a bank, then travels throughout a city (from a grocery store to a parking meter to a garden center) and finally back to the bank. Math is included throughout the book, and readers will be able to figure out page numbers by the amount of money shown on the bottom of the page (e.g. page 25 is a quarter). The text is minimal, though there are several thought bubbles that keep the story moving. The illustrations are clear and colorful; the artist used photographs of money, which makes it stand out. A note is included in the back that gives more information about the history of money and specifically money in the United States. A glossary is also included. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Bill Gates
I would give this book a five-star rating. The title is Bill Gates and the author is Jeanne M. Lesinski. Bill Gates had a dream. His dream was to create his own computer. Bill does complete his goal. On different kinds of computers he created, he did them with other friends. Throughout the story, it tells about his life, his wife, and three kids. Read the book and find out about his life and the start of Microsoft.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent read.
A & E produces a daily Biography show about famous people in all categories, this book is based on that series. Bill Gates is more than a story about the richest man in the world, is an accounting of where this fame and fortune came from and the vision of the future of the software giant.

While the book is only about 100 pages there is enough information about Gates' roots, his ride to the top of the software industry and his recent battles with the Justice department to give this reader a new look into the man himself.

The author gives you pictures from early childhood to his start with Microsoft in Albuquerque to his work with the Bill Gates Library Foundation. I must admit most of the photos have already been seen, however they're a few new and interesting ones, especially his new house.

I personally liked the way the author put together the story, not running over of boring you with details in any one are. The storyline flows from start to finish. Granted there is a lot more that could have gone into the book, however this one was an excellent read. ... Read more

Today's young people are not only interested in money, they're quiteknowledgeable about it--which is apparently what happens when you mix computerknow-how with full employment and parents who play the market. Most, however,still require some assistance as they begin to build their nest eggs. JanetBamford's Street Wise: A Guide for Teen Investors fits this bill nicelybecause it assembles virtually everything these budding financiers need, andpresents it in language they understand. Bamford addresses the market'soperation, full-service versus discount brokers, taxes, investment clubs andgames, and even the possibility of a Wall Street career. Her best adviceconcerns stocks and mutual funds and is again delivered in a relevant, complete,and thoroughly noncondescending manner. "A stock is to a mutual fund," shewrites at one point, in a style familiar to her audience, "as: (a) a can of sodais to a six pack, (b) the Dallas Cowboys are to the NFL, (c) a kitten is to adog, (d) a flower is to a garden."

5-0 out of 5 stars A must for all teenagers!
This is an excellent introduction to the stock market for teenagers. The book is directed towards teenagers and accomplishes it's goal well. All teenagers should read this book to gain a starting knowledge of the American Stockmarket.
The book teaches stock vocabulary, trading tips, how to start, risk and rewards, and many other topics. But, this book is definitely an introduction - if you have a good knowledge of the stock market already, this might not be for you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome!
This book was a great introduction to the Stock Market for me. It was simple and easy to read. It was also interesting. I highly recommend this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful
This book was easy to follow. I enjoyed the chapter on how to get a job on Wall Street. I am 14 and have already started saving for college thanks to this book. My mom made me read it. I was reluctant at first but now I am very glad she did. That is why I rate this book a five!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy-to-read and comprehensive
"Street Wise" is a great introduction to the world of stocks and bonds. I thought that I knew the basics of how "The Street" works, but I learned a great deal from this book. The list of web sites in the back is really useful, and the interviews with past and present teen investors are also interesting.

4-0 out of 5 stars Real World Math
Don't let the cover of this book fool you. At first glance, the cartoon characters and fun design give the impression that this book is intended for young audiences as a basic math primer with real-world examples and applications. It's not. In fact, a more apt name for this book might be: Surviving the Real World: Managing the Money in Your Life, and it is suited to an audience of eighth graders and up, with many examples that will appeal to high school juniors and seniors. The authors do a good job of presenting the major events in a person's life that require money management skills. These include: opening and using a checking or savings account; the uses and abuses of credit; purchasing and maintaining a vehicle; paying for higher education; investing; renting; and creating a budget. The chapters devoted to each of these topics include easy-to-relate to scenarios in order to teach the value of money management skills. For example, we learn how Josh can save more than $200 dollars on prom night by reviewing his before and after budget; and, we feel relief for Kate after she finds help and overcomes debt after maxing out her credit cards in her first year of college. In many of these chapters, the authors include a box that lists the major terms and jargon of each industry. Readers learn how to 'Speak' bank, car buying, credit, rent, and more. An especially important aspect of this book is the emphasis not only on how to manage money, but also on how to think about money. The authors mix in a good dose of frugality with their math formulas. Readers are constantly cautioned to think about the long term costs of making a purchase; in fact, a whole chapter is devoted to shopping for bargains, using coupons, and most importantly, using self discipline when spending. The authors employ their own variant of K.I.S.S. (keep it simple, stupid) with K.I.C.S. (keep it cheap and simple). From there they list a number of ways to save money day-to-day, such as eating dinner at home and going out for only dessert, or having a VCR party at home with friends instead of paying for a movie ticket, that eventually turns into huge savings What this book lacks in depth it makes up for in breadth and a good resources section at the end for further reading. It's an excellent first introduction to money management in real world situations. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Religious Brainwash
This book has contents that speculate with the bible concept of money, and has subliminal christian messages for teens.Is a teen brainwasher, intercalating financial advise with christian believes.This is a religious book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Presents excellent advice in a format that appeals to teens.
What a user-friendly book! Easy-to-read print, lots of cartoon-style illustrations, short chapters, easy-to-follow activities in each chapter - all that and excellent information, too! Just the thing for my 16-year-old. When I saw this book I knew it would be a hit, but I didn't know just how big a hit. My kids choose their favorite subjects to work on first each day, and this book has become number one.

But, does it work? I'll say it does. Chapter 5, "Money Management Made Easy," introduces Larry Burkett's envelope system for managing money. As soon as my son read this, he gathered his envelopes and he's been using the system faithfully ever since. If that was all he got out of this book it would be worth the price. But he is also learning how banks and checking accounts work, how loans and credit cards work, the dangers of borrowing, how to buy a car, and even how to get and keep a job.

Larry Burkett's money management principles are very scripturally sound. Although we have tried to raise our children by demonstrating and teaching sound principles, sometimes hearing from an "expert" can be just what it takes to convince them to do what they should do because it's the right thing to do, not just because Mom and Dad say so. I think that is what the bottom line will be with this great book. I am very happy with it and recommend it highly. ~sbd ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The things kids say, and why we should listen to them!
This is one of the great personal finance books of all time. So often, money managment books are written by wealthy people, so we can make them wealthier by trying to emulate them. Now come an eleven-year-old, wise beyond years to show us how to be comfortable, secure, and childlike, trusting ourselves, as we play the game of making money work for us. This is a definite "need to read" book ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Cuts my preparation time waaaaaay down.
I really love this series. It is a homeschool best kept secret. I have been homeschooling my son since he was 2. We sped through the Kindergarten book and are working systematically through the first grade book, which we find much more challenging. I really enjoy the teaching helps, guidance and the week at a glance lesson plans. A word of warning though. . .I do spend a lot on copying; for one, I want to reuse the text with a younger child, and secondly, often pages that are designed for cutting and pasting are backed up onto another workbook page. I keep portfolios of work--so I don't want a math page on the back of a reading page. I also enjoy the book suggestions. My library has an online catalog--so I look a week or two ahead and find most of what I need! Amazon is great too ! If it were not for the reading suggestions, I fear we might have read the same 5 books over and over again! I'm sure that you all know exactly what I mean! I recommend this book fully to any homeschooler struggling with, time, planning, or fearing forgetting something--it is all there!

4-0 out of 5 stars New Homeschooler
Last year was my first year to homeschool my child,I purchased this book not realizing how wonderful it would be!The book covers all of the required subjects for my state which I found helpful.The book includes lessons for every day for 36 weeks it is absolutely wonderful!I was also able to supplement other books and worksheets to expand on what was in the book ,which I enjoyed.My only complaint is that a lot of the books listed to read were very hard to get,Amazon has many,but the ones they didn't have were sometimes impossible to find.Unless you have an excellent library near by (which I do not)you will have to substitute other books. I'm sure you can find those here at Amazon!This year I am teaching 2nd and kindergarten and I will again be using Learn at Home books!

4-0 out of 5 stars What a find!
This book may just save my sanity. 36 weeks of daily lessons, in 6 subjects, all planned out for you! All you have to do is "read and do"! Could it be any better? Well, yes. For one thing, the pages are all front and back, even the ones that aren't part of a particular week, even the ones that have cut and paste activities on the other side. That is my main gripe. Also, this book is laid out to follow the public school calendar (start in fall, end in early summer). We started school in January and are planning to end in September, so I've had to juggle a few of the activities and lessons around so that we're not studying Autumn in Winter, and so on. Those two snafus aside, this is a great, well-rounded book, and will help you to cover all the bases. You'll need to supplement with library books and whatever other materials you and your child desire.

2-0 out of 5 stars OK curriculum outline, not complete, wacky organization
First, let me describe the overall structure of the curriculum.
There are six subjects: language skills, spelling, reading, math, science, and social studies. The "school year" is divided into 4 9-week periods. The last week of each period is pretty much for review.
There are many problems. Let me list some of them by subject.
Social Studies: Be scared! The second lesson/day of the first week in social studies tells the instructor, "Introduce the well-known ancient explorers (before the 1300s). Gather information from the library on Vikings, Zhang Qian, Marco Polo and Alexander the Great. Discuss their various achievements. Help your child create a chart showing the explorers, their countries of origin, where they explored, the years they explored and other relevant information. Post the chart for reference." Wow, I challenge anyone to do this lesson in just one day let alone a portion of the day (permitting the rest of the day to go to the other five subjects). The book doesn't give the instructor any help -- you have to research this all yourself. This is typical of both social studies and science. The first 9 weeks of social studies are spent in study of explorers, mostly post-1300s. The last 9 weeks are spent studying the Middle Ages. I don't think this is an appropriate order. To make a long story short, we've ditched the entire social studies curriculum and have replaced it with Susan Wise Bauer's _The Story of the World Vol 2_. It's very logically laid out, and if you get the activity book, it's rich.
Language Skills & Reading: We think that each subject was written by a different person, and they never talked to each other. How else can you explain "prefixes and suffixes" being taught in the 4th week of Reading and "affixes" (meaning pre- & suffixes) being taught in the 8th week of Lang Skills? In week 11 of Lang Skills, the student is to write about a volcano using vocabulary introduced in Science. Problem is that volcanoes are not really studied until the 12th week!
Math: Difficult concepts like multi-digit multiplication get less time than simple single-digit multiplication. This sort of unbalanced approach is throughout.
If you are using this book, you will need to do a fair amount of prep work to come up with examples and explanations (ex: story problems to solve, research on Native American tribes, space station Mir). Most of the books suggested for Reading are too easy for our child, so we have to craft different lessons. I don't know how anyone can use this book without a color copier or scanner nearby, because the curriculum lesson layouts are on the backs of worksheets. Also, there are many mistakes in the answer key. Finally, I wish the publisher would list all the areas studied for each subject in the beginning of the book.
Why do we still use this book? Because it is a good skeleton for us to follow. Do not buy this book thinking it be, as it says on the back of the book, "everything you need to teach your child at home." Use it as a tool, not as a toolbox.
Good luck. Homeschooling is not for the faint of heart.

5-0 out of 5 stars Learn At Home is Outstanding!
After two years of research into Home Education curriculum, we purchased Learn At Home, Grade K to Home Educate our child. We compared this curriculum side by side to many other very expensive curriculums and it had everything they had to offer at a more reasonable price. In fact, it was more advanced than some very high priced curriculum. That was three years ago. We have used Learn At Home to Home Educate our child through K, 1st, and 2nd grades. We all LOVE it! It covers six subject areas, plus art and research projects, and reccomends field trips, to give your child a well rounded education. The lessons are right on target with what our local school system requires per grade level. Many times I find that Learn At Home is advanced when compared to what is being taught in our local school. I feel confident that my child is getting a great education. I really like having the lesson plans written out for each week. The teacher suggestions are excellent. These are both great time savers for me which allow me to spend more time with my child rather than doing all the planning work. The books listed in the curriculum are available at our local library. I simply sign online to the library's website, request the listed books, and pick them up when they call to say the books are ready. I plan this out and request the books a week in advance to give the library time to get them for me. It works out great. With all the planning and worksheets already done for me, it makes teaching my child fun, not work. The best part is that my child likes the book and looks forward to doing the worksheets. The only thing we add are Bible lessons by following the read through the Bible in one year plan. There is a Christian Learn At Home book on the market, but it does not have any lesson plans or teacher notes, nor is it as in depth and comprehensive. The pages of the book are preforated and tear out easily. I found that hole punching the pages and putting them into a three ring binder works wonderfully. I make copies of any pages that need to be cut, (this is mostly in the K and Grade 1 book), have my child cut the copy, and paste to the original page. This keeps the book nice. There are a few pages that you will need to make copies of, like book report forms for example. Even with the copies in black in white, they still look nice. Your child can color the pictures on those pages if they want to. We have already purchased Learn At Home, Grade 3 for the coming school year. We really think this is a great curriculum and highly reccomend it! ... Read more
