    Another Financial Winner--for parents!

    Ellie Kay has done it--again! Her 'family stories' are the true laboratory where she's practiced and refined her money-saving techniques. The results are astonishing, and others have found similar results using her suggestions. This book will be a reference manual--especially for parents seeking to train their children not only how to save money, but also in learning real stewardship. Any parent needing to bring their children 'up to speed' on the financial realities of life will find plenty of ammunition, and will appreciate these 'I-can-use-this-tomorrow!' suggestions. At the end of each of her first ten chapters, Ellie's included insights from others in a section she's labeled 'Real-Life Tips from Real People.' The 11th chapter offers extremely practical, age-appropriate activities that will help parents teach their own children the principles of finance on a level they can easily grasp. Ellie's final chapter--'Cash for Kids'--provides just what it says. I stopped counting at 30 different ways young people will be taught and encouraged to earn some cash on their own! (To be honest, I even found some I can use myself!)

    Must Read!

    Outstanding book! In this day when prices are going up and times are difficult, this book will assist in training your children to be financially responsible. Not to mention how it reminds us of what we, as parents, need to do to live by example. Ellie's funny stories had me laughing from page 1 and her practical advice had me implementing the ideas immediately. I highly recommend you read this book; you'll laugh your way to financially responsible children.

    An essential book for all parents!!

    Ellie has done it again! I really enjoyed her last two books; yet, I believe, this one is the best of all!! Funny, entertaining (as always), but full of great ideas to teach kids how to be successful in all matters concerning finances. I highly recommend this book for all parents (and their kids!)

    Answered Prayer

    I prayed for God to make me a better stewart over what he has given us and two days later I find myself reading this book. You will not only learn and laugh but maybe cry as I did, realizing how God answered my prayer. Ellie Kay has all the right stuff when it comes to teaching us about money and the value of buck and how to pass this along to our children. This book helped to change our lives. I know it will change yours as well.

    Practical wisdom

    Ellie Kay has done another fine job of making finances practical, reasonable and even fun! And to think of teaching our kids about it is a great bonus. I think every question any parent could ever ask about teaching their kids about finances is answered in her book. I can't recommend it highly enough. I was empowered to give the right answers for a kid's questions and arguments to spend unwisely.
