As always I read the book before giving it to someone else to read (in this case my little brother). Now I know stocks, so I can tell you what I think. This book doesn't tell kids what they should know, it tells kids what everyone ELSE knows...that's right...NOTHING. It tells you HOW to BUY stocks and HOW to SELL stocks, but it doesn't discuss how to INVEST in stocks. What are the right strategies? When should you buy/sell? Etc.
So If you, your kid, or whoever you're giving this to, wants to be like everyone else and LOSE MONEY in the stock market, then buy this book. (Thats NOT a recommendation). But if you want to be a true investor and BEAT the market as did Ben Graham, Warren Buffet, Peter Lynch, and others, you might want to buy something a bit better. Unfortunately, i have yet to come across a good CHILDREN's investing book, but i HAVE come across a good TEEN one called "The Motley Fool Investment guide for teens"

Format: Paperback
At a time when young people hear increasingly more about the importance of saving money and avoiding too much credit card debt, this revised version of Growing Money can help them to make smart choices about the different ways in which they can save and invest their money.

This helpful guide begins with some interesting facts about money, including the origin of piggy banks, the cost of printing dollar bills and different coins, and the value of bills that the Federal Reserve shreds everyday ($160 million!). Most of the book then covers the basics about different savings and investment options, including savings accounts, certificates, stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. Readers can even take a short quiz to get a sense of their tolerance of risk and their knowledge of the stock market. The closing material provides some tips on choosing amongst the different options in order to achieve one's investment objectives.

The clear exposition and real world examples work well to engage readers while they navigate through important concepts in banking and finance. Although gaining financial literacy may not strike young people as an objective they necessarily want to pursue, this book will help them to see more clearly the need for and benefits of sound investment choices.

I purchased this for my kids (11 & 14) but I read it first to make sure they wouldn't be bored with it. The book is easy to understand and explains all the basic terminology used in the finance/banking world. This is a great starting point for anyone to teach their kids about finance/money matters. Too many people today don't have a basic understanding of finance which is probably why were in the mess we are.

At first this seems like it's for younger children, but it also makes a lot of sense for teens who have never been exposed to these concepts. Written clearly, logically and with a few fun twists and projects that kids can relate to. One of a kind book.

Great for a basic understanding about how things work. Keep in mind that this is a basic guideling and not an in-depth training tool.

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

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...
