Children's Literature - Jean Boreen
This text is part of the "Junior Library of Money" series specifically focused on introducing young adults to issues related to the world of money. This particular text, which I consider the first in the series because it is directed at teachers and/or parents who are interested in sharing financial concepts with their students or children, contains thirteen chapters that begin with a general introduction to the history, culture and meaning of modern finance. The following twelve chapters provide some detail about how to teach or talk to teens about "banking basics," "investing," " planning for an education," "entrepreneurship" and so on; however, fourteen additional books in the series go into much greater detail on each topic and are directed at young adults themselves. Ten-dollar bill text boxes throughout ask questions connected to topics in each chapter and there is also a very useful "Here's What Kids Need to Understand" page in each chapter. The "Other Resources for Classroom and Families" provides useful books and websites for additional consideration. This text, and the series in general, provides an interesting look at issues with money which young adults should be able to read about and understand easily. Reviewer: Jean Boreen, Ph.D.
