Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The author, a mother of two with a background in marketing, has devised a creative system for helping children understand the value of money while learning about careers. Maintaining that many kids assume that money grows on trees, with "gimme" as a mainstay in their vocabularies, Weinstein presents an alternative allowance program. Children four to 12 select from 50 careers and parents guide them as they choose from more than 950 activities, ranging from "shadowing" a professional archeologist to learning how to analyze products like a UX researcher. In return for completing their career assignments, children get financial compensation (the author leaves the exact amount in the hands of the parent) from parents. Children still complete household duties such as making their beds, but the allowance comes from the "Earn My Keep" tasks only. While the book is a treasure trove of innovative and imaginative activities, readers may wonder how busy kids will find time to add to their already packed schedules. Weinstein asserts, however, that many of the tasks (which are icon-coded by type, from simple to complex) can be managed in small amounts of time. Skeptical readers may also wish that examples of families that have successfully used the system had been interwoven. (Jan.)

Review

""Weinstein founded Earn My Keep, a simple program to teach kids ages four to 12 how to turn their allowance into money-making jobs based on real careers instead of simply taking out the garbage. Kids choose from various careers and are allowed to select their own tasks and deadlines (suggestions provided). When they complete the work, it's payday! All careers have three levels, accommodating the youngest earners up to older children, as well as symbols indicating the topics or skills involved (art, math, manners, money management, etc.). An exciting concept back by research that isn't as home schoolish as it sounds; I'm trying it with my own kids." - School Library Journal, starred review" - Library Journal

"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
