"What I like most about Earn It, Learn It is that it is a learning experience that is going to teach values necessary for our children to become productive adults... I think this is a wonderful concept that is much needed for today's youth and I have been utilizing many of the activities as part of our home school curriculum. My kids have enjoyed the age appropriate activities that we have selected though I did not financially compensate them (I am waiting until they are older)." - Simply Stacie
"Love it! And surely moms can relate to the "gimme this...gimme that" syndrome...." - The MomTini Lounge
"The book is packed with great tools to teach your child about the value of money and the value to be responsible of money" - Dad of Divas' Reviews

Got a child interested in being an archaeologist, an event planner, a toy designer or maybe a TV writer? This is definitely the book for them.
Each career has its own chapter, then within each chapter kids will find numerous educational suggestions to help kids learn for themselves. Take for example, the Disk Jockey. Contained within the Disk Jockey chapter are 15 different assignment topics ranging from learning a new genre of music to making a play list of songs to acting as the DJ at mom and dad's party. Each career chapter also contains interesting side bar information as well as a list of similar careers in case your child wants to learn even more about that occupation's field.
What's really awesome about these career assignments is that they were all suggested by actual professionals working in the specific fields. The topics are genuine and the educational value is real.
The title of the book, Earn It, Learn It, is based on the author's initial "get a job" idea for her own child. Ms. Weinstein envisioned parents assigning career topics from the book, then the paying the child when they are finished with the work as if they have a job. Frankly, that idea didn't fly too well in my house, perhaps because my kids are in middle and high school. They enjoyed the book solely on the basis of what it is...a collection of educational prompts to further a study of careers. And really I was fine with that. That's probably the beauty of the book right there. It's filled with ideas, but truly it is flexible and fits into any family.Read more ›
If your child has the maturity of about 3rd grade, it will be great. You could get it for younger kids and if it's not right just yet it will be soon!
