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.
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"
I highly recommend this book.
