Overview

This book in the Planet Girl series approaches the subject of money with the verve and hip intelligence the series is known for. Today's girl is no fool -- she knows money can't buy happiness. But if she wants on the bus, or a snack when she's out, she needs some cash flow. Money management often gets left out of home or classroom discussions. Planet Girl has delivered a book that gives practical advice on a range of topics relating to money -- tips on jobs, saving, debt, spending and budgeting, how to become a girl entrepreneur, what to scrimp on (and what not to), the hidden price of cheap, how to reconcile having less than some friends and why fundraising can make girls feel priceless! As expected from the Planet Girl series, the book is chockfull of energetic comics and spot art, and also includes checklists, quizzes, money journal pages to photocopy, a bank lingo glossary and much more. With Centsibility, preparing for a lifetime of smart money management and developing a healthy money attitude has never been easier or more appealing to girls.

Children's Literature - Anita Barnes Lowen
Most of us know how to spend money. But if you are going to spend money, you need to now how to make it. And if you make money, you need to know how to save it, spend it and even share it. Divided into four parts—"Make It," "Save It," "Spend It," and "Share It"—this guide includes lots of good information about dollars and cents. Just how can you go about earning your own money? What is so interesting about interest? What is the "10% solution"? Is there a smart way to shop? Is it possible that giving away money is a good investment? The book includes a very brief history of money, quizzes to help you learn about your money "purse-onality," and instructions for several craft projects. From the "Planet Girl" series and illustrated with many amusing drawings, this book is a cute introduction to managing money. Includes a recipe for when-life-gives-you-lemons lemonade. Appropriate for younger teens and preteens. Reviewer: Anita Barnes Lowen
