Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-- The 15-year-old author assembled these 51 ideas for kids to make money; numerous adults have done this before, but this guy is organized! Some of the projects require specialized knowledge and/or equipment (computer teacher and telephone-information-line organizer), others are add-ons to other services (garbage can mover, newspaper mover), and some are just plain selling (snack vendor, street flower vendor). Less than half are duplicated in other widely distributed books on the topic. For each business, Bernstein tells what supplies to obtain, how much time is involved, what to charge, how to advertise, and other helpful hints. The expressive cartoons are entertaining, but they don't show how to do anything. The style is concise, straightforward, and upbeat. Bonnie and Noel Drew's Kid Biz (Eakin, 1990 formerly known as Fast Cash for Kids ; Homeland, 1987), Wilkinson's Making Cents (Little, 1989), and Belliston and Hanks's Extra Cash for Kids (Wolgemuth & Hyatt, 1989) all have ideas that are just as creative, give more background information, and have more suggestions. Making Cents has more informative illustrations, but none have Bernstein's economical style or uniform categories of information that make it easy for readers to compare the requirements and rewards of each entrepreneurial idea. --Jonathan Betz-Zall, Sno-Isle Regional Library System, Edmonds, WA
