Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Best-selling financial author Kobliner (Get a Financial Life) here provides a step-by-step look at developing financial literacy skills throughout childhood. Concerned that we are avoiding teaching our kids the financial facts of life, she outlines specific dos and don'ts that parents can adopt, such as whether or not allowances should be tied to chores. She strongly suggests disclosing neither your salary nor the babysitter's wage, and presents age-appropriate money skills for preschoolers through college grads ("Research shows that kids whose parents carry the full burden of college costs score lower GPAs than kids who chip in."). Addressing everything from car loans to moving home after college, Kobliner's recommendations are practical, thorough, and relevant (e.g., she explains why extended warranties are almost always unnecessary). VERDICT Considering the huge burden of debt that many young people carry today, wise is the parent who starts the youngster saving early. Warmly recommended.—Julianne Smith, Ypsilanti District Library, MI


“Can a book on money be fun for the whole family? This one is! Even better, it is full of wisdom, and it is a genuine public service. Beth Kobliner has produced a miracle. Your kids will profit from her amazing and brilliant book—and you will too.” -- Cass Sunstein, director of the Program on Behavioral Economics and Public Policy at Harvard University and coauthor of the New York Times bestseller Nudge

“A much-needed, tell-it-to-me-straight book, written with wit and humor. I wish I’d had it when my kids were little—but better late than never!” -- Amy Chua, author of the New York Times bestseller Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother

“Ms. Kobliner’s new book is worth reading. It’s a good base for building [your children’s] financial literacy.... And if the book makes you stop periodically to reconsider your own spending and saving habits, or helps you find a good answer when your child asks about money, that’s good, too. “, The New York Times

“If you’ve ever dreaded discussing the financial facts of life with your child, this is the book for you. Beth Kobliner walks you through a conversation that every parent should have with their children early and often about money matters. The book delivers the title’s promise—you can easily teach your child to be a money genius by following Kobliner’s wise advice.” -- Alan Krueger, former chairman, White House Council of Economic Advisers, and Bendheim Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at Princeton University

“Kids today need to understand the danger of debit cards the same way humans once had to understand saber-toothed tigers. In a world of unprecedented financial complexity, Kobliner’s survival guide should come with every car-seat purchase.” -- Amanda Ripley, author of the New York Times bestseller The Smartest Kids in the World

“As schools continue to recognize the need for financial education, Kobliner delivers a master class for the most important teachers of all—parents. No question: Make Your Kid a Money Genius is required reading for families from every background.” -- Arne Duncan, former U.S. Secretary of Education

“Many of us don’t have a clue about money management and, therefore, chances are good that our kids won’t either. Beth Kobliner throws a lifeline into that abyss with her frank, factual, and funny how-to manual. A must-have whether your kid is in preschool or grad school.” -- Julie Lythcott-Haims, author of the New York Times bestseller How to Raise an Adult

“How should parents handle allowance? Should your child work while in school? Are credit cards a good idea in college? Kobliner helps us think through these small yet important questions that lead to a life of financial literacy for both parent and child.” -- Susan Fuhrman, president of Teachers College, Columbia University

“Beth Kobliner understands that children should begin to learn money skills early, and gain new ones as they grow. This guide is designed to help parents put their kids on sound financial footing by untangling a difficult but critically important topic.” -- John W. Rogers, Jr., chairman and CEO, Ariel Investments, and chair, President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability for Young Americans

“With a keen sense of what is appropriate at each age, from allowance to math games to giving children independence, Kobliner introduces parents to money talk as part of daily interactions.” -- Tovah P. Klein, director of the Center for Toddler Development at Barnard College and author of How Toddlers Thrive
